The readership of the Collection will include neurosurgeons, radiologists, neurologists, oncologists, physiologists, engineers (aeronautics, material biomedical, computer and electrical), nanotechnologists, immunologists, psychologists, psychiatrists, neuroscientists and radiation oncologists, among others. "PLoS ONE is excited to be working with the SBMT and providing a platform for the Society's transition to open access," said Dr. Damian Pattinson, Executive Editor of PLoS ONE.
"As the physical and biological sciences continue to make major advances, the knowledge gaps amongst such disciplines also become more apparent. Thus one of the challenges of this century will be how to best educate physicians, surgeons, engineers and scientists about state-of-the-art technologies across multiple disciplines. SBMT's mission is to continue to close such gaps through its annual congresses, satellite symposiums and publications," said Dr. Babak Kateb, Founder & Chairman of the board of SBMT, President of Brain Mapping Foundation, Research Scientist at the Department of Neurosurgery Cedars-Sinai Medical Center and Chairman of the editorial board of SBMT.
The current collection contains a selection of very high quality publications, and the number of submissions continues to grow. "We invite members of the Society to submit their work to this remarkable multidisciplinary publication platform and encourage other scientists to join the Society and take advantage of this publication opportunity, as well as to be a part of the impressive network we have built over last 10 years," said Colonel Michael Roy, President of SBMT and Director of Military Internal Medicine at Uniformed Services University (USUHS).
SBMT is planning its 10th Annual World Congress for Brain Mapping in Baltimore, Maryland on May 12-14, 2013. Abstract submission is open and the PLoSONE-NMT Collection is accepting papers.
