Celebrate Peer Review Week
Peer Review Week (September 11 – 17) is a global event recognizing peer reviewers’ contributions to maintaining scientific quality. This year’s theme is Transparency in Review.
As part of Peer Review Week, the Editors-in-Chief of JNeurosci and eNeuro invite you to join the Q&A discussion forum in the Neuronline Community.
The Q&A will be open to the public in keeping with the Peer Review Week theme of transparency. At other times Neuronline is accessible only by SfN members as part of their member benefits.
We hope you will take advantage of this opportunity to ask any questions you have about JNeurosci and eNeuro, the peer review process, the type of scientific research we publish or any questions about the editorial handling of manuscripts.
Also, to celebrate Peer Review Week, SfN has opened up some of its members-only content from its Publishing and Peer Review Collection in Neuronline.
