WIKIMEDIA, NICOLAS ROUGIERThe Society for Neuroscience (SfN), which publishes The Journal of Neuroscience, has given its flagship journal a competitor. The publisher announced that a new open-access, online-only journal for reporting brain research could launch as early as this fall. “The field has expressed great enthusiasm for an open-access journal from SfN,” Carol Mason, SfN president, said in a press release.

Like many online-only and open-access journals, the new publication promises researchers who submit papers ease and speed in getting their reports through peer review. According to SfN, “it is expected the process will generally not require additional experiments and require no more than [one to two] review cycles.” Other details of the journal have not yet emerged.

As the search begins for an editor in chief for the new journal, SfN will also start looking for a new editor in chief for The Journal of Neuroscience as John Maunsell leaves the post he’s held since 2008.
