Publication standard

Submissions will be accepted only when *the research and its result should make a great impact to the world. It is highly encouraged that the paper has been published or is scheduled to be published in most-cited prestigious international scientific journals. (Unpublished manuscript should be posted only after press release.) To maintain the high standards of "Neuroscience Topics", we may turn down the submission depending on the content. Please note that The Neuroscience News Editing Committee has the right to make all decisions relevant to the website.
   In addition, unlike the topics of Neuroscience News, “The Neuroscience Topics” on our home page site is for general readers, not only for scientists. Therefore, please avoid technical terms, focus on principles for writing clearly, and for effectively conveying information to general readership.

*The topic of the article should be an interest of the general public and a great discovery. Or it should be highly publicized.
