Airing of scientific differences can often lead to new insights. We publish Letters to the Editor to allow readers to provide commentary on our articles, as well as insights on general topics in neuroscience. Letters are reviewed by the Editor-in-Chief, and if warranted the authors of the target article are provided an opportunity to respond.
Coming Soon: New Steps to Increase Rigor and Reproducibility
There are growing concerns about the reproducibility of experiments, and like all prestigious journals, we are contemplating new measures to improve the reliability of the work we publish. As a first step, we will encourage more thorough reporting of methodology. We are also requesting that authors include validation of key reagents they use. Stay tuned as we implement new policies related to reproducibility.
All of the changes implemented over the past two years are highlighted on this webpage, and discussed in this Podcast.
Meet the Editors: Christos Constantinidis
Christos Constantinidis is a Professor of Neurobiology & Anatomy at the Wake Forest School of Medicine. His research investigates the neural basis of cognitive functions such as visual working memory and spatial attention, using non-human primate models. Christos contributes editorial expertise on higher neural functions, neural circuits, and visual processing.
Publication of Review Manuscripts on the Rise
We are publishing more and more review articles, including 18 so far in 2016. Those articles are listed below, and a Collection of Recent Reviews is on our website. Note: the topic of a review must be approved by the Editor-in-Chief prior to composition and submission of the article.
