Publication fees are reduced if the first and last authors are members of the Society for Neuroscience. For a limited time, there is a discounted Publication fee price as noted below. eNeuro's publication fee for research articles, History of Neuroscience, Societal Impact, and Review articles is $1,450 (regularly $1,950) for members and $1,840 (regularly $2,175) for nonmembers. For commentaries and opinions, the fee is $725 (regularly $975) for members and $920 (regularly $1,087.50) for nonmembers. There There is an additional $25 fee if publication fees are paid by Wire transfer.

To offset expenses associated with eNeuro’s editorial process — including peer-review management, data tagging and composition, copyediting, online hosting and archiving, and publishing — the journal charges a publication fee to the authors, institutions, or funders for each article published. These fees are called article processing charges and will be billed to the corresponding author upon acceptance of the article. There is no fee for invited articles. Authors are not charged extra for color figures, tables, or multimedia.

Reduced Fees Policy

In an effort to aid neuroscientists working in resource-restricted countries and to broaden the dissemination of science to all areas of the world, eNeuro offers reduced publication fees to scientists located in the countries classified by the World Bank as low-income economies (Category I), lower-middle-income economies (Category II), or upper-middle-income economies (Category III).

All publication fees will be reduced to 25 percent of the usual amount for Category I countries, and will be reduced to 50 percent of the usual amount for countries in Category II and III.
