The International Society for Neurochemistry (ISN), its Journal of Neurochemistry (JNC), and its publishers Wiley Blackwell support a Plenary Lecture at the annual meetings of societies in countries where the science is developing from a low base. The intent is to promote neurochemistry in those countries. Read more about the concept and application guidelines here.

Monthly double print issues

NIH-funded authors and Journal of Neurochemistry
From April 2008, the NIH is mandating grantees to deposit their peer-reviewed author manuscripts in PubMed Central, to be made publicly available within 12 months of publication. The NIH mandate applies to all articles based on research that has been wholly or partially funded by the NIH and that are accepted for publication on or after April 7, 2008.
In order to help authors comply with the NIH mandate, for papers accepted for publication in Journal of Neurochemistry after this date Wiley-Blackwell will post the accepted manuscript (incorporating all amendments made during peer review, but prior to the publisher’s copy-editing and typesetting) of articles by NIH grant-holders to PubMed Central at the point of acceptance by the journal. This version will then be made publicly available in PubMed Central 12 months after publication. Following the deposit Wiley-Blackwell authors will receive further communications from the NIH with respect to the submission. For further information, see here.
If authors wish to make their final published article openly accessible and without a 12 month embargo, they can choose to publish via the Online Open service.
Wellcome and HHMI grantees can find out further information here.
