BioMed Central at SfN 2013

At BioMed Central, we’re passionate about neuroscience, with a strong portfolio of open access journals, ranging from those dedicated to the field, such as BMC Neuroscience, Molecular Brain and Journal of Neuroinflammation, to broader scope journals with a strong emphasis on advances in neuroscience.

We are committed to serving the community’s needs and continue to remain at the forefront of initiatives such as that of the Neuroscience Peer Review Consortium, co-chaired by Neural Development’s co-Editor-in-Chief, Josh Sanes.

This week, we are delighted to be attending SfN 2013 in San Diego, California, and to have the opportunity to meet with our editors, authors and reviewers, and engage with the research community.

If you are attending SfN and would like to talk open access and find out more about our journals, please do stop by the BioMed Central booth (#137), where you can meet with me and my BioMed Central colleagues.

Biome, the new online magazine launched by BioMed Central this year, has been highlighting some of the most interesting and significant neuroscience research published across our titles.

Our special print issue of Biome is well worth a read, featuring research into neural precursor therapy, the reversal of cognitive impairment and the neuroimaging techniques unraveling autism; perspective pieces on biomarkers for Alzheimer’s disease, traumatic brain injury and controversies in psychiatry; as well as community perspectives on ethical research and painless publishing.

Be sure to pick up a free copy of Biome from the BioMed Central booth, along with our 2013 Neuroscience Highlights booklet, showcasing selected abstracts from across our titles.

We look forward to meeting you in San Diego!
