We really enjoy the Meet-the-Editors sessions at SfN. Please come by and meet our Reviewing and Senior Editors. As for a Scratch-and-Sniff cover, that doesn’t translate well for those who read JNeurosci online. One day we hope to have kittens on the cover though.

This is a very tough question. I wonder whether this is applicable to all Neuroscience fields. If you read Neuroscience papers, most tell a story. Like: we found this, which was unexpected, so we did this experiment which led to this result. Based on this, we thought about doing that etc. I don’t see how you can present the research plan and methodology in a results-free manner. You somehow need to tell the reviewer which results you are going to obtain to present the next experiment. This invalidates the concept. This works if you have a “simple” question, i.e. one for which you can plan everything in advance. For example, a preclinical study to test a drug. Then, it becomes like registered reports. eNeuro is going to implement registered reports. Having said that, the results-free approach is great if it is applicable; it removes some bias.

Thanks for sending us your excellent questions! Please come see many of the editors at the annual meeting in DC. Tweet any questions you may have about JNeurosci to @MarinaP63 any time.

Hi, Dear Dr. Marina Picciotto,

Thanks!

Dear Dr. Marina Picciotto, thank you so much.
One more very simple question: Does “be an SfN member” means to acquire membership with 200 dollars per year?
Thanks again!

All the best
Jingcheng
