Editing Process

  • Step 1: Write!

    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.

  • Step 2: Submit

    Submit your article on your journal dashboard. You can submit as a docx file. Please note that all articles must follow the IYNA formatting guidelines (see below).

  • Step 3: Editing Round 1

    Your article will be reviewed by a senior editor and 2 junior editors, who will review the article within a week in accordance with the IYNA Formatting and Editorial Guidelines.

  • Step 4: Back to You!

    After the first round of editing, your article, now with feedback, comments, and suggestions, will be sent back to you. You will be asked to improve the article accordingly, and then send it back, preferably within a week. However, you will be given a maximum of two weeks to make changes to your article. If you send back your article past the two week deadline, your article's chances of being published in the next issue will be in jeopardy.

  • Step 5: Editing Round 2

    When received with your improvements, the article will be edited by another team of 1 senior editor and 1 junior editor,who will put final touches on the article within a week. In some cases, the article may be sent back to you again.

  • Step 4: Compilation and Publication

    Finally, our journal leadership team will compile all 7-8 articles (with related pages) of the to-be-published issue into one document to be later uploaded onto the website under the tab “Read the Journal.

  • Step 7: Individual Article Uploads

    The journal leadership team will individually upload all 7-8 articles of the to-be-published issue to the website under the tabs “Columns” and “Authors.

Our Plagiarism Policy

The IYNA takes plagiarism very seriously. All articles should be original content, with any outside information properly cited. An exception to this is our research summary articles, where a recent publication is restated in layman's terms. However, writing such an article requires express consent from the original author of the study.

Submitting articles that are plagiarized (in part or in whole) may result in permanent termination of IYNA membership. If you believe that an article contains plagiarized material, please file a support ticket.
