On this page, you will find a PDF containing the IYNA Journal Format
Guidelines, Editing Guidelines, and a detailed description of our
six step submission process. At the bottom of the page, you will
find a button that allows you to submit an article to our journal.
General Formatting Guidelines
1. Write and Submit:
Write your article on a neuroscience-related topic of your
choosing. Articles should be based on reliable primary and
secondary sources (Wikipedia and similar sources are not
acceptable). We recommend using Pubmed to find sources. Please
make sure you read the editing process below carefully. Gross
deviations from the IYNA Editing and Formatting Guidelines will
result in the automatic rejection of a submitted article. However,
you are always welcome to make changes to a rejected article and
resubmit for further consideration.
2. Format Round 1:
Your article will be reviewed by our Managing Editor who will
review the article within 2-5 weeks of receiving it and ensure
that it follows the IYNA Formatting and Editorial Guidelines. Your
article will be returned to you so that you can make edits
3. Format Round 2:
Your article will be reviewed by our Managing Editor who again
will, within 2-5 weeks of receiving the article, review it and
ensure that it follows the IYNA Formatting and Editorial
4. Editing Round 1:
Your article will be reviewed by a senior editor and 2 junior
editors, who will review the article within 2-5 weeks in
accordance with the IYNA Formatting and Editorial Guidelines.
Your article will be returned to you so that you can make edits
5. Editing Round 2:
When received with your improvements, the article will enter its
final round of revision and be edited by another team of 1 senior
editor and 1 junior editor, who will put the final touches on the
article within 2-5 weeks. In some cases, the article may be sent
back to you again.
6. Compilation and Publication:
Finally, our journal leadership team will compile usually 10
articles (with related pages) of the to-be-published issue into
one document to be later uploaded onto the IYNA Journal website.
Typical timeline length of an article to be published varies but
average time is 3-6 months.
