An open future for neuroscience – join BioMed Central at SfN 2014!

SfN 2014 starts tomorrow, and I will be there, along with several of my colleagues. It’s a big event in the neuroscience research calendar, and every year the conference is an opportunity to hear about the latest and most cutting edge research in the field.

Over the last few years I’ve seen open access becomes increasingly popular within the field of neuroscience (and rightly so, I think), and it’s great to be part of that. I work with some of the first high-quality open access neuroscience journals, edited and supported by a community of leading experts, and we’re proud of that here at BioMed Central.

This year, as we’ve been gearing up for SfN, we decided to mark the occasion by summing up in 60 seconds the impact of publishing open access neuroscience with BioMed Central – check out our new video:

And that’s not all we’ve been up to. BioMed Central’s magazine, Biome, is also showcasing a selection of research highlights, comment, opinion and community news within the field of neuroscience. You can pick up the latest Biome issue on neuroscience, along with our special issue of highlights from Journal of Neuroinflammation’s 10th anniversary series, at booth 104, so make sure you stop by.

We’re looking forward to talking to as many people as possible about open access (we’re ready for your questions!). And you can also listen to our latest Biome podcasts and view video interviews with leading researchers.

Follow the action from the hashtag #SFN14, and feel free to tweet us at @NeuroPsychBMC if you’d like to talk about any of the work we’ve been up to at BioMed Central. See you in DC!
