Neuroscience Research Notes
HELP US TO SUSTAIN THE JOURNAL
BEFORE 1st DECEMBER 2022
Submitting, publishing, reading and accessing any articles in the journal do not incur fees of any form. The journal is made for non-profit in order to liberate science and make it free of charge for everyone.
However, someone would have to pay for the bills (server, domain, doi, archiving, marketing, manpower etc) and expenses that keeping this journal free for all. By average, 16-hour is spent on each accepted article from the moment of acceptance to publication. Not to mention the time spent on processing the manuscript for peer-reviewing.
Therefore, supporters, readers and authors feel free to contribute any article viewing or processing fees as you like. You will have the choices on the amount you wish to pay as you read or publish your articles here. The amount range from MYR/USD0 (FREE) to any figure that is affordable by you. We will not judge you if you decided not to contribute. After all this is the main reason behind establishing the journal to help liberating science regardless of your backgrounds. The fee is never obligatory. If you do contribute, you make maintaining the journal far more sustainable in long term basis.
Regardless of your decision, please feel free to contribute your next manuscript to the journal or access any published articles as you like! As much as we want to sustain better, we look forward to your contributions as well as readership!
FROM 1st DECEMBER 2022 ONWARDS
Since the establishment of the journal in 2018, we have been catering for more than 200 papers, of which 40% of them were published and well-cited to date. However, due to various factors, the FREE journal is no longer sustainable, and the admin has decided to switch its current FREE model to an AFFORDABLE model to better cater for everyone. This is a hard decision but timely due to the scarcity of public donations. To ensure we continue serving our community, we have decided to impose USD50 per accepted article submitted on or after 1st December 2022.
