No. 51 (2023): Breaking up with Elsevier
Janine Bijsterbosch, member of the editorial team of Imaging Neuroscience, informs about their recent break with publishing giant Elsevier. The editors collectively left the Elsevier journal Neuroimage, where the impact factor was 7.4 and the cost of publishing (APC) was set at 3,450 US Dollars. Instead, they set up a new, non-profit journal called Imaging Neuroscience. This will be published by MIT Press, with an APC of 1,600 dollars and waivers for authors from low- and middle-income countries. Ambitions are to become the new preferred journal for researchers in its field and at the same time lowering the APC even further.
