The peer review process is a critical stage in the publication of an academic article, and one of the keystones of the scientific process. It should not be seen as a process by which third parties pass judgment on research, but rather as a means of obtaining constructive feedback about that research, provided by the author's peers, meaning his or her equals. Peer review has two essential objectives:
It acts as a filter by ensuring that research was conducted properly before the project is published.
It improves the quality of research. Rigorous review by other experts is instrumental in perfecting key points and correcting unwanted lapsus.
The aim of Neurosciences and History is to cover a field that does not fall into the scope of other neuroscience journals. Its main focus is researching the history of neuroscience, with particular emphasis on new and interdisciplinary historiographical perspectives. The journal's target audience includes experts in neuroscience and the history of medicine, historians, humanists, and scientists from all fields with an interest in history. Its context within the fields of both medicine and the humanities makes our journal unique, and this should be taken into account during the review process. Recall that each of the fields named above follows its own specific scientific method, and the approach to discussing a certain topic may differ from one field to another.
Neurosciences and Historywould like to thank its reviewers for their hard work, dedication, and expertise in reviewing manuscripts. Without their assistance, we would not be able to maintain the level of quality which both our readers and the authors who entrust us with their manuscripts expect from our journal.
