Christophe Bernard, editor-in-chief of eNeuro
An open-access journal from the Society for Neuroscience, eNeuro publishes high-quality, broad-based, peer-reviewed research focused solely on the field of neuroscience. eNeuro embodies an emerging scientific vision that offers a new experience for authors and readers, all in support of the Society’s mission to advance understanding of the brain and nervous system.
An Enhanced Author Experience
Broader Range of Content and Subjects
eNeuro publishes a wide array of content, including research articles, short reports, reviews, commentaries, opinions, and more. eNeuro also features studies that focus on negative results, failure to reproduce, tools and methods, and new theories.
Fair, Fast Review
Publishing decisions are made by respected, working scientists spanning neuroscience disciplines, and because SfN is a nonprofit organization, all decisions are based on scientific factors rather than commercial. In addition, eNeuro is experimenting with innovations in the peer-review process, including double-blind reviews in which the identities of the authors and reviewers are hidden from each other, and synthesis reviews with the reviewers’ final decisions and agreements published with the article.
Once accepted, studies are published immediately online, ensuring that the field has swift access to research. During the editing process, prepublication manuscripts are posted online as PDFs.
A New Environment for Readers
Expanded Online Features
eNeuro's online environment promotes greater use of images, video, and audio for published articles, and offers features that allow easy content sharing and communications directly with authors. Many articles may also contain significance statements and visual abstracts for an engaging, interactive experience.
Continuously Published Research
Rather than releasing articles by issue, eNeuro continuously releases composed articles immediately upon completion of the editing process, offering new content every day when ready. Customized alerts can alert you when your preferred topics and article types are published.
Advancing the Field of Neuroscience
A High-Quality, Open-Access Option
Innovation in scientific publishing is growing, and new digital opportunities that speed scientific communication are emerging. Such a landscape provides authors and readers an exciting new option for sharing research, and without delays in publication. Given its reputation for publishing scientifically excellent research, SfN is excited to create a new venue for sharing great science.
Investing in Nonprofit Programs
Aside from its mission of publishing excellent science, the Society for Neuroscience is dedicated to supporting neuroscience research on all fronts. Scientists choosing to publish their research with eNeuro are investing in SfN’s nonprofit programs worldwide that enhance and serve the field, providing professional development opportunities, public information, and legislative advocacy for research.
