New Guidelines to Promote Data Reproducibility
The American Physiological Society recently published new guidelines to enhance transparency and reproducibility of research. The editors of the Journal of Neurophysiology encourage all authors and reviewers to become familiar with these guidelines. Checklists will be soon be added to our editorial system to facilitate compliance with the guidelines.
Star Reviewers for 2016
Finding reviewers for papers can be challenging. However, some individuals repeatedly volunteer to review papers, and do so thoroughly and quickly. The following star reviewers each reviewed 10 or more papers in 2016, and returned their comments within 15 days. Our sincere thanks to our star reviewers.
