The Journal is published once every semester, with publication dates in December, March, and June of each academic year. We will be advertising article submission dates accordingly within each semester via our social media channels. We estimate that the writing, editing, and peer review process takes around 4 weeks, so please do plan accordingly. 

Before submitting a completed article, please send in an outline of the article you wish to write to one of our Editor-in-Chiefs (contact details below). Depending on the content or topic, you may be then assigned to work with a different editor to the one you initially emailed. Unfortunately, we are currently unable to accept articles from students outside of King's College London, although we do welcome articles from Alumni. 

 

You will be working closely with your editor, who will be there to help you develop your scientific writing skills. Once an editor approves your article outline, you will be able to start writing your article! All of our editors are students with previously published scientific works, and they will be there to provide you guidance and feedback throughout the writing process. 

After your editor is happy with your article drafts, your work will undergo a peer review process by our peer review team. This is to ensure factual accuracy with regard to any scientific points raised in your article, as well as to provide feedback from a general scientific audience. The peer review feedback will then be passed on to your editor, who may ask for some minor revisions before accepting your work for publication

Once your article has been accepted, it'll be published in King's College London Neuroscience Society's student review journal Neurosphere! please feel free to share your article on social media if you so wish.
