Oxford Journals launches SCAN - a new journal in Social Cognitive and Affective Neuroscience

Oxford Journals is delighted to announce the launch of a new journal in the social neurosciences.

Social Cognitive and Affective Neuroscience (SCAN) will provide a vehicle for research in the increasingly overlapping fields of social psychology and the neurosciences. This is a rapidly growing area with a wide research base, yet currently has no dedicated journal. SCAN will publish peer-reviewed research at the cutting edge of social cognitive neuroscience, affective neuroscience, and neuroeconomics.

Support in the research community for SCAN has been widespread, and Oxford Journals has secured several leaders in the field as members of the editorial board. 

"With a strong OUP books programme in the neurosciences already in place, including a books series in Social Neuroscience (http://www.oup.com/uk/catalogue/?ci=9780195149951), combined with leading journals in neurology and neuroscience, Oxford Journals has a close working relationship with the top researchers in this field, and is ideally positioned to be a leader in this growing discipline," commented Paul Kidd, Editor, Health Sciences, Oxford Journals. 

He continued: "The journal boasts a leading editorial team, with Professor Matthew Lieberman (University of California) as Editor in Chief (http://www.scn.ucla.edu/people_liebermanm.html). We will also offer rapid peer review, online submission and fast online publication, and in 2006 all articles will be accessible for free online." 

Newly appointed Editor in Chief, Professor Matthew Lieberman, added, "SCAN will bring together cutting edge work from the social sciences and the neurosciences, bridging the longstanding mind/brain and society/individual distinctions. We're excited and optimistic that this journal will be a big success."

SCAN joins Oxford Journals' prestigious Medicine list, which includes some of the world's most highly read titles in clinical medicine, public health, epidemiology and medical research, including Brain, Cerebral Cortex, Human Reproduction, and the European Heart Journal. 

SCAN launches today, with three issues in its first year. The journal will be available by subscription from 2007, but will also offer optional open access through the Oxford Open initiative (for more information about Oxford Open go to http://www.oxfordjournals.org/oxfordopen/)
