new journal -- JONES

Announcing the new journal JONES!

Auditory list members may be interested in the new, open-access Journal of Neurobehavioral Experiments and Stimuli (JONES) dedicated to disseminating experiments in perception, cognitive neuroscience, and brain imaging.  JONES is a new concept in a methods journal:  instead of a description of the experiment, JONES hosts the actual experiment including the experiment code and the stimuli presented. 

To assure experiment quality, JONES restricts publication to experiments cited in peer-reviewed, research articles that have been published within the last five years. Submissions to JONES must be made by one of the authors of the original publication.  The authors retain copyright.
JONES accepts experiments programmed with any platform including Eprime, Superlab, Cogent, Cortex, Psychophysics Toolbox, Presentation, Tucker-Davis, Cambridge Research Labs, STIM, VSG, DMDX, DirectRT, etc. -- even custom programs. JONES even provides links to different experiment platforms so that you can get the software needed for experiment replication.

You can browse JONES and view video samples of experiments with you web browser.   Download whole experiments or just stimuli posted by others. JONES will speed up your research and make it easy to replicate and extend existing research paradigms.

Publication is easy.  Just create a .zip file with the experimental code and stimuli, upload it to the JONES website, and then cut and paste the abstract and links to the original publication.   The publication process should take about 30 min.  Each publication in JONES will have a permanent URL.  Links will take an interested reader from the JONES experiment to the original manuscript, or from the manuscript (or your website) directly to the experiment!

JONES is hosted as public service by NeuroBehavioral Systems. Publication in JONES is free. To encourage submissions, for a limited time each experiment published in JONES will entitle the author to a free, one-year Presentation license.  Visit JONES at http://www.neuroexpts.com to learn more.
