Portland Press partners with ScienceOpen to foster research in neuronal signaling

For the official press release, please see our Press Room and Knowledgespeak.

Neuronal Signaling, a new open access journal published by Portland Press, joins ScienceOpen to foster research and reviews on all aspects of signaling within and between neurons in the form of an interactive featured collection on the platform.

Owned by the Biochemical Society, Portland Press promotes the future of molecular biosciences and the wider life sciences. Neuronal Signaling is an online-only, fully open access journal grounded in the fields of cellular signaling pathways, biochemistry, and molecular biology. It spans a variety of neuroscientific disciplines, from molecular mechanisms of neuropathologies and neurodegeneration, to signaling in consciousness and memory. All articles in the journal are published with a CC BY Creative Commons License. Open for submissions, you can submit your article to Neuronal Signaling today.

ScienceOpen and Neuronal Signaling are both committed to increasing the visibility of neuroscientific research. Placed within the ScienceOpen discovery platform of over 52 million article records, the ‘Neuronal Signaling’ featured collection is contextualized within a broad and interactive environment of dynamic sorting and filtering tools. Interactive features such as community curation, article reviews, comments, and recommendations create a forum for researcher engagement and increase research discoverability.

ScienceOpen highlights the new ‘Neuronal Signaling’ collection in its research discovery environment as an important initiative to optimize the scientific and social impact of neuroscientific research.

We are very excited to work with Portland Press, a leading independent society publisher, to promote this new journal. There is a real need for new high-quality open access publishing venues at this transitional moment in scholarly communication. The range and quality of articles in the Neuronal Signaling Collection attest to the rigor and care that authors can expect when publishing with Portland Press and ScienceOpen is designed to showcase that excellence.

Stephanie Dawson, CEO of ScienceOpen

Sustainable open access is very much part of our objectives at Portland Press. The new collection page with ScienceOpen will further increase the availability of Neuronal Signaling’s outstanding research, helping it to reach new and engaged audiences, garnering responses from and cultivating conversation between fellow researchers and industry specialists. This partnership represents an important step in the ongoing development of Neuronal Signaling, helping it better serve its global community.
