Detailed instructions for submitting a revised manuscript are included in the decision letter when a manuscript has been judged potentially acceptable for publication.
When submitting a revised manuscript you must:
- Submit revisions within three months of this the decision letter. If an extension is needed, contact eNeuro's central office (eNeuro@sfn.org) before the deadline.
- Sign the electronic License to Publish form once the revised manuscript is submitted. A link to the form will be available on the home page of the manuscript submission page for each author, if the corresponding author does not sign for all authors.
- Submit a point-by-point reply to the reviews showing how reviewer concerns were addressed.
- Submit the manuscript text (including tables, if any) in Word, WordPerfect, RTF, LaTeX, or Text format. In addition to a clean copy of the manuscript, you must include a version with all insertions and deletions indicated, so that reviewers can easily see the changes you have made. If revisions require adding, deleting, or reordering of figures, tables, or equations, be sure that all in-text references to such items are renumbered as well.
- If the statement "All animal procedures were performed in accordance with the authors' university animal care committee's regulations" was used in the materials and methods section to preserve the double-blind process, please be sure to provide the full statement, including the name of the institution in the cover letter so it can be used if the article is accepted.
- Double-check that all in-text citations are in the reference list and that all references on the reference list have at least one corresponding in-text citation. Only published references should appear in the reference list at the end of the paper.
- In the case of 'in press' references (i.e., accepted for publication in a specific journal or book), the paper, which must be relevant for reviewers to see in order to make a well-informed evaluation, should be included as an eNeuro.org SfN Information for Authors separate document text file along with the submitted manuscript. In this case, the authors recognize the loss of anonymity. "Submitted" references should be cited only in text and in the following form: (unpublished observations). If the paper is accepted, the authors can then add their names, i.e., (A. B. Smith, C. D. Johnson, and E. Greene, unpublished observations). Submit publication quality digital figures, one per file (see Figure, Table, and Multimedia Guidelines). Check all aspects of illustrations carefully to avoid alterations in the proofs (see also the proofs section). All labels used in a figure should be explained in the legend. Double-check that all labels and symbols mentioned in the figure legend are on the final version of the figure. For questions regarding figure sizing and digital art preparation see Figures.
- Scrutinize your paper at this time for any final corrections in style or substance. Changes at the proof stage are permitted only for corrections of factual errors, printer's errors, or quality of figure reproduction. Other changes may result in a fee.
eNeuro highlights articles on the home page using illustrations related to a recently published article. Images are chosen for the carousel primarily on the basis of aesthetic appeal and scientific interest. We are primarily interested in visually captivating images rather than those that serve to document experimental findings. Cartoons or metaphorical images are generally not accepted.
When submitting cover art created by someone who is not an author of the article, please have the creator fill out and sign the following permission form, License to Use Carousel Material. The signed form must be submitted with the cover art submission. Also, include an acknowledgement in the cover legend of the creator who provided the artwork.
Because of our tight production schedule, image submissions should be received within 5 days from the date of acceptance. Images to highlight your published article should be deposited at the FTP site that is described in the acceptance letter that authors receive. Please save the art in a folder named with the manuscript ID number assigned by eNeuro. If you don't have FTP software, a free program can be obtained from http://filezilla.sourceforge.net. If using a Macintosh, you can download Fetch for free for 15 days at: http://fetchsoftworks.com/. After you have deposited your image please notify us by sending an email to eNeuro@sfn.org.
Images should be formatted to the equivalent of 2 inches wide by 1 inch high with a resolution of at least 300 pixels/inch. The file should be in either EPS or TIF format.
Authors should be aware that eNeuro limits author alterations in proof. Only corrections of factual errors, copyediting errors, or in the quality of figure reproduction are allowed. This step has been taken to reduce the time required to produce eNeuro. All fees must be paid before a manuscript will be published.
To speed publication of eNeuro authors are given 48 hours from receipt of proofs to make and return corrections. Authors should notify eNeuro's central office, eNeuro@sfn.org, if the proofs should be sent to an email address other than that of the corresponding author listed on the manuscript. To purchase reprints or to inquire about production charges or invoices, refer to the contact material included with the proofs.
Once a manuscript is accepted, authors' names can only be added, deleted, or altered with the approval of the editors. Requests for changes to the author list will delay publication of a manuscript.
