Call for Submissions

  

Dear Fun Colleagues, 

 

If you haven’t seen the most recent JUNE edition (Fall 2015) go to: http://www.funjournal.org/current-issue/, and enjoy interesting editorials, reviews and papers on a variety of topics of interest to neuroscience educators.  This includes the new feature on “amazing papers” described below.  Please consider contributing an article on general pedagogy, a new laboratory exercise, or review a textbook, popular neuroscience related book, or other relevant educational media for the next edition of JUNE (Spring 2016) by January 15, 2016.  See instructions to authors at: http://www.funjournal.org/for-authors/.  We are considered the innovators in undergraduate neuroscience teaching, and JUNE is the FUN vehicle to disseminate these innovations.

In the current issue of JUNE a new feature was introduced: the amazing papers in neuroscience.   The purpose of this feature is to allow undergraduate neuroscience educators to share literature resources that have proven useful in their own teaching.  In that first offering, fourteen contributors offered short descriptions of historical and contemporary readings, which included the general contents of the paper(s), their value (i.e., how they've proven useful in teaching), and their target audiences, each in approximately one page of journal space. These short submissions will continue to present (i.e., in 1-2 pages) an article or two so as to allow readers to decide whether they are worth exploring further.  Contributors are free to submit papers on any topic related to neuroscience and of any vintage.  In future issues each submission will be published independently, as are other review formats in the journal. 

 

We are also soliciting longer submissions that describe either an emerging neuroscientific technique, an important topical update or a larger selection of papers (thematically related) in greater detail (around 5 pages).  These will provide interested readers with a comprehensive tutorial that would be useful as a teaching module and could support lecture preparation and class discussion.  The principle requirement for all forms of these submissions remains that they be useful in teaching undergraduate neuroscience.  Any questions about these submissions can be addressed to Ian Harrington at ianharrington@augustana.edu.

 

Best wishes,

Bruce
