Article Guidelines

Article Guidelines

We publish articles under three formats: Research Summaries, Discussion Pieces and Personal Reflections.

Research Summaries
These are articles summarising areas of cutting-edge neuroscience research. Have you been involved in a recent publication and want to communicate it to a general audience? Or maybe you would like to take the opportunity to summarise an area of neuroscience research that you are directly involved in or even summarise an area that simply interests you? This article can take the form of a brief summary (<500 words), a much deeper dive into an area of neuroscience (max 2000 words) or even a series of articles, but the goal of these articles is to communicate current research in neuroscience in an interesting and digestible way to a general audience.

Discussion Pieces
These articles aim to promote discussion around real-world implications of neuroscience. Use them to discuss how neuroscience affects our daily lives, provide perspectives on neuroscience-related ethical issues or comment on hot neuroscience topics. These can include research findings, but should focus on promoting discussion of the issue at hand rather than summarising the research.

Personal Reflections
These articles are designed to share personal experiences relevant to neuroscience. Have you or someone you know experienced mental health problems or other neurological issues? Or are you a neuroscience researcher or practitioner keen to share your personal experiences with neuroscience research? We are keen to hear from you. We expect these articles to vary hugely in length and style, and the option to write this piece anonymously is available.
