The Journal of Neuroscience and Cognition
The Journal of Neuroscience and Cognition is an internal academic report of the Master Programme Neuroscience and Cognition of the University Utrecht (NL). Its main aim is to give its students a first grasp of the world of publishing.

The peer review process
The Journal of Neuroscience and Cognition employs a peer review process; all submissions to the journal will be sent to a peer student active in the same research field, this review report will be sent back to the author for revision and can be sent in for a second time. After this, the editorial board, which consists of eight first-year students assigned to the board for the duration of one year, will decide which articles will get published in the journal’s upcoming issue. Please note, a submission can be rejected by the editorial board at all times.
