We are not the only ones starting a serious blog these days. We are being dwarfed by Nature Neuroscience’s (NN) new feature, a blog called Action Potential. And yet, this is very likely one of the resources we will get our material from. A brief look at the blog tells us that it is an attempt at giving the journal a face outwards. To many (most) of us, NN is really one of the top journal to get a publication. Any source that can give a better understanding of what goes behind the scenes in NN is great! And see, they also announce talks about how to get published in NN!
About the purpose of the blog, it says:
“Action Potential is a blog by the editors of Nature Neuroscience – and a forum for our readers, authors and the entire neuroscience community. We’ll discuss what’s new and exciting in neuroscience, be it in our journal or elsewhere. We hope for spirited conversation!”
If things work out for Action Potential, we hope to see plenty of discussions, news and headlines both from NN, Nature as well as other journals. But it seems to depend on the activities of the visitors; you and me. Why not pay Action Potential a visit and join the discussions?
So, a welcome from us Lilliputians; we’ll be watching you.
