Scientists are increasingly challenged by difficulties in obtaining funding, and have many demands on their time, making them less inclined to participate in voluntary activities such as peer review. The editors of
Journal of Neurophysiology are developing new strategies to assure that all submitted manuscripts receive rapid and fair peer review, as discussed in a recent editorial.
Wolfram Schultz, a member of the Journal of Neurophysiology Editorial Board and the American Physiological Society, is one of the recipients of the 2017 Brain Prize. We are honored to include such a distinguished neuroscientist on our Editorial Board, and that Dr. Schultz has published over 20 articles in the Journal of Neurophysiology.
On request of an author, we publicize their article through a video or audio podcast. We also highlight selected papers through social media. If you would like your accepted article promoted through a podcast or social media,
contact the editor.
