The purpose of Aperture is to enable a diverse approach to sharing and communicating high quality, community-based, open neuroscience while bringing transparency and interactivity to the publishing process.
Aperture is an open-access peer-reviewed online journal created by members of the Organization for Human Brain Mapping to share and promote research beyond the traditional PDF. Aperture encourages and welcomes both OHBM members and non-members to submit. Aperture is looking for research that will enhance, innovate, and advance neuroscience. Aperture publishes articles (research reports and reviews) and other research objects, including tutorials, workshops, processing pipelines, software, simulations, computational notebooks, and datasets.
There are no submission fees. Authors that have their work accepted for publication will be required to pay an Author Processing Charge. For non-members, the Author Processing Charge is $1,000.00, but for members, the APC is reduced to $800.00. The APC's will allow Aperture to recover the costs associated with running the journal, including a part-time Journal Manager, the Attendee Interactive platform, marketing, plagiarism detection software, PubMed registration, etc.
