Journal Submissions

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.


Submission Process

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 accordingly.

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 Guidelines.

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 accordingly.

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.
