Our new online Journal is now live! This newsletter issue highlights some of the features of our new site.
Better Presentation of Articles
Articles are now presented online in a two-column format. You can display figures, references, related articles, and article information next to the text. This allows readers to seamlessly read an article without jumping around to find figures and references.
In addition to downloading a PDF version of articles for printing, readers can now also download a PDFplus version that is optimized for online viewing, with reference linking.
Our social media on
Twitter are prominently featured on the
Journal's home page, as well as a listing of our articles that are getting the most attention in social media. All articles accepted by the
Journal of Neurophysiology are promoted via social media, to increase their visibility.
A link to our
social media request form is included in the acceptance letter for every article. This form allows authors to customize how we promote their article. We are the only major neuroscience journal to provide this service.
Podcasts can now be played directly from the
An increasing number of authors are electing to record a podcast related to their article. This is not surprising, as we make it very easy: we handle all the logistics for podcasts, and authors just need to participate in a scripted panel discussion conducted via Skype. Authors review and approve the final podcast prior to posting.
Since its founding in 1938, the
Journal of Neurophysiology has published many of the seminal papers in neuroscience. We highlight the most important articles published in the
Journal in our
Collection of Classic Articles and through our "Throwback Thursday" social media promotions. Help us identify additional classic articles by completing the
classic article nomination form.
Unlike most journals, a dedicated staff of professionals is solely devoted to the production of the
Journal of Neurophysiology. The
Journal's editors and dedicated staff members are eager to provide personalized service to our authors.
Neuroscience Peer Review Consortium (NPRC) is an alliance of 50+ neuroscience journals, including the
Journal of Neurophysiology, that aims to reduce peer review time. If your paper was rejected by a NPRC journal, you can transfer it to a second NPRC journal. The original journal sends the prior reviews and often the identity of the reviewers to the editor of the second journal, so they can treat the paper like a revision and not a new submission.
Journal of Neurophysiology will be a sponsor of the 28th Society for the
Neural Control of Movement Meeting in Santa Fe, New Mexico, from May 1 - 4, 2018. Poster submissions will be accepted through February 26, 2018.
Look for a Call for Manuscripts related to the meeting in January.
