Future Neurology to be fully Open Access from 2019
Future Medicine is pleased to announce that, from January 2019, Future Neurology will be following a fully open access model.
“This change is very exciting for Future Neurology as since its launch we have continued to publish high-quality scientific work and commentary, and the open access model will allow our brilliant content to be shared across an even bigger audience,” commented Rachel Jenkins, Commissioning Editor for Future Neurology.
The transition means that all the content published from January 2019 onwards will be open access on www.futuremedicine.com.
The journal covers key areas of neurology, publishing the latest findings and opinions, exploring the best clinical research. The journal also highlights significant advances in basic and translational research, placing them in context for future therapy.
Future Neurology considers original research articles that have been conducted with scientific rigor and research integrity. They also accept case report submissions. Other article types considered include reviews, perspectives, editorials and commentaries, providing neurologists and other health professionals with high-quality information and discussion on the breadth of topic areas within neurology in a clear, accessible format.
The journal will follow a gold open access model, publishing all articles under the Creative Commons CC-BY-NC-ND license. Authors are required to fully comply with the journal’s Disclosure & Conflict of Interest Policy as well as major publishing guidelines, including ICMJE and GPP3. All research and review-style articles submitted to the journals will undergo double-blind peer review by a minimum of two independent experts.
We are currently actively soliciting contributions of original research, reviews and perspective articles. If you get in touch via email using the subject line ‘Future Neurology OA’ by 31st December 2018, the open access fees for your article will be waived.
