Data Sharing Policy

The Journal of Multiscale Neuroscience provides immediate open access to its content on the principle that making research freely available to the public, thereby  supporting a greater global exchange of knowledge. JMN is an international journal that promotes publication among research scientists,  scholars, academicians, and medical professionals across the globe. 

 

JMN strongly encourages authors to make all data associated with their submissions publicly available in accordance with the FAIR principles (Findable, Accessible, Interoperable, Reusable). Upon publication, the paper’s Data Accessibility Statement will be made public so this data should be linked to it. In the event that the data are not made available with the journal publication, then an author’s statement should be provided within the submission to explain why the data were not made available. Data obtained from other sources must be appropriately credited. Ideally, all data should be organized in a format that allows for quick understanding and analysis of the information (e.g., sensible row and column headers, descriptions in a readme text file). By doing this, its potential for reuse will be enhanced.

 

The FAIR Data Principles


Scientific advancement is enhanced by data sharing, which promotes transparency, increases collaboration, accelerates research, and fosters better decision-making. Data sharing is a crucial aspect of public health and is proving to be valuable when it comes to responding to emergencies such as outbreaks of infectious diseases or other types of crises. It is for this reason  that these FAIR principles are being adopted by a growing number of  research institutions around the world to guide their research practices.


An international consortium of scientists and organizations developed the FAIR Data Principles (Findable, Accessible, Interoperable, and Reusable) published in Scientific Data 2016 as a set of guiding principles to advancing digital content reusability. Increasingly, people are dependent on information technology where FAIR Data allows computational systems to find, access, interoperate, and reuse data without requiring a lot of human intervention. It is for this reason  that these FAIR principles are being adopted by a growing number of  research institutions around the world to guide their research practices.

Self-Arching Policy

When an article is accepted for publication in Journal of Multiscale Neuroscience, authors are permitted to self archive the accepted manuscript on their own personal website and/or in their funder or institutional repositories, for public release. According to the terms of the specific Creative Common license, all authors retain the copyright of their articles. As part on Neural Press commitment to Open Access all authors are allowed to self-archive their work in Word format or PDF format in any institutional repositories, on the web, or on author’s websites. Authors are permitted to republish their work, for example, as a book chapter. Authors of articles published in Journal of Multiscale Neuroscience (JMN) are allowed to self-archive the submitted, accepted (peer-reviewed) and published (copyedited) versions of the manuscript at repositories hosted by their home institutions, public domains or within personal websites. Authors should cite the publication reference and DOI number on the first page of any deposited version, and provide a link from it to the URL of the published article on the journal's website.

Policy on Funded Publications

Authors retain the copyright to their articles, therefore they can self-archive their accepted and published manuscripts in HTML, Word or PDF format on their personal websites, institutional/university repository or a cross-institutional subject repository like arXive.org, Preprints, etc. All articles are published under the Creative Commons Attribution License (https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0/legalcode), which permits unrestricted, archiving, distribution and reproduction in any medium, provided that the work is properly cited.

For open access content published under a Creative Commons license, authors are encouraged to deposit the published version immediately on publication, alongside a link to the  URL  of  the  published  article on the            website (https://www.neuralpress.org/).

In all cases, the requirement to link to the JMN's website is designed to protect the integrity and authenticity of the scientific record, with the online published version on https//www.neuralpress.org clearly identified as the definitive version of record work.
