From the beginning, eLife’s mission has been to accelerate discovery by encouraging the most responsible behaviours in science. It is an initiative created by research funders and led by scientific and medical researchers to transform research communication through improvements to science publishing, technology and research culture.
We would like to invite you to find out more about eLife in our upcoming webinar: publishing and reviewing with eLife. The session will be chaired by eLife Reviewing Editor and Deputy Director of the RIKEN Center for Brain Science, Yukiko Goda, and eLife Regional Representative and Assistant Professor at the Kobe University Graduate School of Medicine, Takeshi Fukumoto.
This webinar, presented in Japanese, will run through everything you need to know about submitting your research to eLife, ranging from our consultative peer review process to the many initiatives we have for early-career researchers. This presentation will then be followed by a question and answer session where you can ask the presenters any questions you may have.
RIKEN Center for Brain Science
Yukiko is Deputy Director of the RIKEN Center for Brain Science and heads the Laboratory for Synaptic Plasticity and Connectivity. Before moving to RIKEN in 2011, she was a senior group leader at the MRC Laboratory for Molecular Cell Biology at UCL for 9 years. Her research addresses how synaptic strengths are set and dynamically modified at individual synapses in relationship to other synapses in specific brain circuits. Recent efforts in the group also target roles for astrocytes in synapse regulation.
