Dear Readers, Authors, and Colleagues,

With two co-Editors-in-Chief now in place, possessing complimentary areas of focus, we feel that 2013 provides an excellent opportunity for Synapse to advance in new directions. We intend to implement a series of changes that will broaden the scope and appeal of Synapse to encompass a wider field of neuroscience research. In particular, we hope to increase the number of submissions that the journal receives in the areas of synaptic and neuronal electrophysiology, studies of ion channel and transporter biophysics, computational neuroscience, single synapse imaging and optogenetics, sensory systems, and developmental neurobiology. We believe that by increasing the number of submissions, and also raising the bar for acceptance, our journal will publish higher quality papers, which will increase its visibility and impact. This, in turn, will have a positive feedback effect that will keep the journal viable and vital for our research community well into the digital future. At the same time, we intend to keep the traditional strengths of Synapse in the areas of neurological and psychiatric diseases, in neurochemistry and pharmacological studies of synapses, neurons and microcircuits of the brain. We will also implement measures to increase the pool of our reviewers and shorten the time from submission to a final decision on the suitability of a paper for Synapse. We hope that Synapse will continue to provide a vital service to the neuroscience community as a strong journal where high quality papers can be quickly reviewed and published. We thus welcome your input and suggestions on how to make this a better journal and venue for top-notch experimental and theoretical neuroscience research.

In addition, we would like to take this opportunity to acknowledge the community of scholars who have generously provided their time and expertise to anonymously review articles for Synapse during the past year. Their names are listed below. We are grateful for their efforts to assure that Synapse not only publishes the best papers, but does so in a timely fashion. The names of those who have contributed three or more reviews are indicated by an asterisk and they deserve our special thanks.

With best regards and wishes for a productive new year.

Yours,

Henrique von Gersdorff, Peter Jenner
