J-NeuroTechnology is an online scientific journal part of the J-Science&Technology publishing platform.
Journal of NeuroTechnology publishes a wide range of topics related to neurosciences and neural simulation technologies.
- Topics covered -
This Journal of NeuroTechnology welcomes contributions to the neurosciences able to expand the knowledge on the functioning of the brain and will put special emphasis on the technologies of neural simulation able to replicate the cognitive faculties in engineering applications.
- General information -
J-NeuroTechnology publishes three types of research reports: Regular manuscripts, Brief communications of corporate research and development and letters to the editor.
Every contribution for publication shall be sent in English.
The Regular manuscripts are limited to 700 words for the introduction and 2000 words for the discussion.
Responses to articles shall be sent in the form of letters to the editor.
The Brief communications of corporate research and development are subject to the same limitations of regular manuscripts. These corporate publications, although not "scientific" articles of the journal, should be intended as authoritative contributions available to the scientific community.
- Editorial policy -
The authors who present a paper to J-NeuroTechnology are responsible for the truthfulness of what is presented and they are required to comply with all the policies on scientific communication and ethics that the journal has chosen to follow.
- Ethical policy -
The J-Neurotechnology ethical policy states that the articles submitted to the journal shall be respectful of the human person and the dignity of the animal (if included in the research).
- Policy regarding previous publication -
J-NeuroTechnology will not accept articles previously published on other journals.
- Policy on image manipulation -
The J-NeuroTechnology editors reserve the right to ask the authors for any original data during the phases of presentation, review, in the publication process and post publication.
Failure of the authors to provide the requested data, will affect the outcome of the publication.
- Image manipulation -
Each image must be the original. Any manipulation, such as overlays, highlights, cancellations, etc., in order to be accepted, shall be clearly described in the text and possibly in the caption.
The image is considered laboratory data, a product of the test of the research, and every elaboration that alters the meaning is considered an alteration of the data.
- Copyright Policy -
Authors who publish their articles in J-NeuroTecnology grant to J-Science&Technology an exclusive license to publish.
- Costs of publication -
No monetary contribution is required for submitting articles.
- Preparation of the manuscript -
Regular manuscripts, exclusively in English, shall have the following sections:
- Title Page
- Introduction (700 words maximum, including citations)
- Materials & Methods
- Discussion (2000 words maximum, including citations)
- Illustrations and Tables
- Mathematics and Equations
The Brief communications of corporate research and development are not subject to any fixed form. The form, in this category of publication, will be agreed with the Editor from case to case.
- Title Page -
The first page of the manuscript shall contain the regular title (30 words maximum); the names of the authors and their affiliations.
If the manuscript has more than one author, the author who presents the manuscript is the only one with whom the Editor communicates.
The names of authors normally written in non-Latin characters shall be presented with a transliteration in Latin characters and the non-Latin characters in brackets (provided that they are compatible).
- Abstract -
The Abstract shall be written briefly (250 words maximum) and must be clearly understandable to as wide an audience as possible. It must be a summary of the entire article including clear objectives, methodologies and results.
- Introdution -
The introduction shall contain, in a maximum of 700 words, the objectives of the work presented trying to point out in the clearest possible way the scientific and technical landscape in which the work is born, and the added value which it pursues.
- Materials and Methods -
The Materials and Methods section shall be short but sufficiently precise in describing the experimental approach of the work, in order to allow the scientific community to verify the results through the replicability of the described procedures. In case the manuscript is of a purely theoretical nature, the Materials and Methods section can be omitted.
- Results -
In the case of experimental works the authors are invited to describe the test results in the form of numerical statistics, charts and graphs to allow the reader an easier and more effective comparison with the related scientific literature.
- Discussion -
The discussion, in a maximum of 2000 words (including citations) shall include an exposition of the results, a discussion of the validity of the observations (if the work is of an experimental nature), a discussion of the results in light of the bibliography on the topic of the work and how this fits into the technical/scientific national/international landscape.
- References -
In the manuscript references shall be included as sequential numbers in the format: [x].
The number shall refer to the publication in the format: x. Authors - Year - Title, Magazine/Proceeding/etc., volume and pages.
- Caption -
Manuscripts containing illustrations (figures, multimedia elements or 3D models) shall include a description of those as part of the text. A caption shall be provided for each illustration. The figures, models and media files must be numbered independently. The text of the article shall refer to the figures as "Figure 1", "Figure 2", etc., to the models as "Model 1", "Model 2", etc., and to the media files as "Movie 1", "Movie 2 ", etc.
