Welcome to the Neuroscience Peer Review Consortium – an innovation in science publishing.
The Neuroscience Peer Review Consortium is an alliance of neuroscience journals that have agreed to accept manuscript reviews from other members of the Consortium. Its goals are to support efficient and thorough peer review of original research in neuroscience, speed the publication of research reports, and reduce the burden on peer reviewers.
The Consortium was initiated in January, 2008. The participating journals, in cooperation with the INCF, agreed in November, 2008 to extend the NPRC through 2009, and then to evaluate its effectiveness annually and consider extending it on a year-to-year basis. This model was followed until 2011, when it was agreed among the journal representatives at the annual meeting that NPRC would continue indefinitely and that INCF will continue to support NPRC on an ongoing basis. Journals may join or leave the NPRC at any time.
The Consortium extends an invitation to
all MEDLINE-indexed journals that publish peer-reviewed original
research in the broad field of neuroscience to join.
