Elsevier publishes five new Neuroscience Books and Atlases
- 19 Oct 2015

STM publisher Elsevier has announced the publication of five new neuroscience books and atlases, including MRI/DTI Atlas of the Rat Brain by George Paxinos, Charles Watson, Evan Calabrese, Alexandra Badea and G. Allan Johnson. The publications will be on display at the upcoming Society for Neuroscience's (SfN) annual meeting, Neuroscience 2015 at Elsevier booth #134, October 17-20.

MRI/DTI Atlas of the Rat Brain is the first atlas to offer comprehensive MRI and DTI coverage of the rat brain. It offers two major enhancements when compared with earlier attempts to make MRI/DTI rat brain atlases. First, the spatial resolution at 25µm is considerably higher than previous data published. Second, the comprehensive set of MRI/DTI contrasts provided has enabled the authors to identify more than 80 percent of structures identified in The Rat Brain in Stereotaxic Coordinates.

Lead author Dr. George Paxinos has published nearly 50 books on the structure of the brain of humans and experimental animals, including The Rat Brain in Stereotaxic Coordinates, now in its 7th Edition, which is ranked by Thomson ISI as one of the 50 most cited items in the Web of Science. He paved the way for future neuroscience research by being the first to produce a three-dimensional (stereotaxic) framework for placement of electrodes and injections in the brain of experimental animals, which is now used as an international standard.

To support neuroscience researchers and students, Elsevier is providing a series of free digital volumes to encourage learning and development in neuroscience. The volumes include excerpts from Elsevier books focused on a central theme to give the reader an introduction to new ideas and information on a topic.

Also at the Elsevier booth at SfN's Neuroscience 2015, attendees can meet authors and editors, including Dr. Paxinos, Dr. Pascal Wallisch, Dr. Seymour Diamond, Dr. Larry Edelstein, Dr. Joaquin Fuster, Dr. Edgar Garcia-Rill and Dr. Gülgün Sengül. They will be at the booth on October 19, 1:00 pm – 2:00 pm and October 20, 11:00 am – 12:00 noon. Attendees visiting the booth during those times will be entered into drawings to win one of their books.

Elsevier uses proprietary tools to identify knowledge gaps in fields such as neuroscience. Editorial teams then strategically fill those gaps with content written by key influencers in the field, giving students, faculty and researchers the content they need to answer challenging questions and improve outcomes. These new books and atlases are key examples of how Elsevier is enabling science to drive innovation.

The new books are: MRI/DTI Atlas of the Rat Brainby George Paxinos, Charles Watson, Evan Calabrese, Alexandra Badea and G. Allan Johnson; Guide to Research Techniques in Neuroscience, Second Edition by Matt Carter and Jennifer Shieh; Atlas of the Human Brain, Fourth Edition by Juergen Mai, Milan Majtanik and George Paxinos; The Prefrontal Cortex, Fifth Edition by Joaquin Fuster; and Waking and the Reticular Activating System in Health and Disease by Edgar Garcia-Rill.

Society for Neuroscience set to launch new OA journal in the field of neuroscience
- 20 Jan 2014

The Society for Neuroscience (SfN) has announced plans to launch a new, open access (OA), online-only journal to serve the field of neuroscience. The journal, expected to launch as early as fall 2014, will provide a fully open access, rapid publication option for neuroscientists, adding another high-quality publishing venue available through the field's leading non-profit scientific society.

The new OA journal, which has not yet been named, will publish articles that are scientifically excellent, technically sound, and move the field of neuroscience forward. It will have streamlined peer review and production processes distinct from The Journal of Neuroscience (JN), the Society's flagship scientific publication. Like JN, the new journal will cover a broad spectrum of areas in the field.

The new journal's objective is to provide a quality publication that can also incubate experimentation with emerging publishing and peer review concepts. It will ensure that the peer-review process is of high quality, fair, and fast. While details will be finalised and formalised by the first editorial board, it is expected the process will generally not require additional experiments and require no more than 1-2 review cycles.

The search for an editor in chief for the new journal will launch shortly. It will take place alongside a planned, separate-but-complementary search for a successor to outgoing JN editor in chief John Maunsell, who has served since 2008.

A single search committee will conduct the search for the two editors in chief. Past SfN President Moses Chao of New York University will lead it. Other members include Hollis Cline of The Scripps Research Institute, Barry Everitt of the University of Cambridge, David Fitzpatrick of the Max Planck Florida Institute, and Eve Marder of Brandeis University.

Elsevier and the Neuroscience Information Framework collaborate to improve reporting of research in neuroscience literature
- 08 Nov 2013

STM publisher Elsevier, Netherlands, has announced its collaboration with the Neuroscience Information Framework (NIF), by incorporating the Minimal Data Standards across four of its neuroscience journals.

Minimal Data Standards are a set of recommendations developed by NIF, the most comprehensive portal of available web-based resources in the field of neuroscience, to facilitate resource identification in published neuroscience articles. One of the big challenges that neuroscientists face today is that research findings reported in the literature often lack sufficient details to enable reproducibility of methodology or reuse of data. With the launch of the Minimal Data Standards, NIF aims to address this issue.

Elsevier is one of the first scholarly publishers to adopt the Minimal Data Standards guidelines. Initially four Elsevier journals will take part in the pilot: Brain Research, Experimental Neurology, Journal of Neuroscience Methods, and Neurobiology of Disease. These journals will incorporate the guidelines into their article submission process, recommending authors to include gene/genome accession numbers, species specific nomenclatures, antibody identifiers, and software details in the methods section of their articles. More Elsevier neuroscience journals will join the initiative as the pilot further develops in 2014.

Supporting the NIF to roll out the Minimal Data Standards pilot with the aim of developing better and more accurate resource identification within the neuroscience literature, falls within the scope of Article of the Future, Elsevier's on-going program to improve the format of the scientific article.
