Dear Friends and colleagues,
I’m delighted to introduce a new journal Oxford Open Neuroscience to you as senior Editor. You may be interested to find out the list of Editors/Editorial Board members at: https://academic.oup.com/oons/pages/editorial-board.
I am currently compiling content for the journal’s launch, aiming to showcase cutting edge papers across the breadth of the scope. I would be very pleased if any of you would be willing to contribute a manuscript (Review Article/ Research Article/ Rapid Communication / Methodology Article) in your research field. Alternatively, you can invite your colleagues/friends to submit a manuscript to Oxford Open Neuroscience. You are welcome to modify this email and circulate it among your colleagues/friends to call for paper submission.
The articles published at launch will set the standard for the journal going forwards and will therefore be predominantly invited content of high quality alongside top unsolicited submissions. Your article would receive additional attention from inclusion in the journal launch, which we plan to promote strongly to the field. As an Open Access journal, you will further benefit from the increased dissemination and visibility achieved by your work being made freely available to all readers globally.
As a commissioned piece, OUP (Oxford University Press) has also agreed to waive the Article Processing Charge for your paper, meaning that you will be able to publish Open Access for free in the journal and receive all of the associated benefits of OA publication.
You can find out more about the journal on our recently launched website: https://academic.oup.com/oons and I would also be very happy to discuss the journal, and your article with you further. I very much hope that you will be willing to contribute to our launch and have an impact on the community.
Please do let me know if this is something you can take on, and if so what timescale you may be able to submit by? We aim to receive the first batch of submissions before the end of the year or January 2022.
Once you or your colleagues/friends have agreed to submit manuscripts to Oxford Open Neuroscience, please send me the following information for collation. Thanks very much!
