Elsevier Features New Neuroscience Books at 10th FENS Forum for Neuroscience

Also previewing articles from new Reference Module in Neuroscience and Biobehavioral Psychology at Elsevier booth # 70

Cambridge, MA, June 20, 2016

Elsevier, a world-leading provider of scientific, technical and medical information products and services, today announced the publication of four new and updated neuroscience atlases, including MRI/DTI Atlas of the Rat Brain and Atlas of the Human Brain, Fourth Edition.

Along with these highly anticipated books, Elsevier will offer access to eight preview articles from its new Reference Module in Neuroscience and Biobehavioral Psychology in booth # 70 at the 10th Federation of European Neuroscience Societies (FENS) Forum for Neuroscience, July 2-6, in Copenhagen, Denmark.

On Tuesday, July 5, from 1-2 pm, FENS Forum attendees are invited to visit the Elsevier booth for a “meet and greet” with authors George Paxinos, Gulgun Sengul and Edgar Garcia-Rill. Everyone stopping by the booth during that time will be entered in a drawing to receive a signed copy of one of the authors’ books. Elsevier publishers will be available to discuss book proposals as well.

Also at the booth, Elsevier books will be discounted 30 percent and more, with free global shipping. Elsevier will distribute coupons to download A Primer for a Career in Neuroscience, a free e-publication for neuroscience students. Complimentary copies of Elsevier journals and Cell Press journals will be available while they last, as will daily giveaways such as USB flash drives, coffee mugs, book marks and tote bags.

New neuroscience books include:

Announced last month, Elsevier’s Reference Module in Neuroscience and Biobehavioral Psychology offers a one-stop solution for researchers, educators and students. It provides a cohesive and authoritative resource on ScienceDirect that is continuously reviewed and regularly updated by experts to reflect the latest developments in the field. Researchers and clinicians using the Reference Module will have access to interdisciplinary subjects including behavioral neuroscience; mental health; the human brain; clinical psychology; psychotherapy; applied psychology; infant and early childhood development; movement disorders; and sleep. When it is launched in November 2016, the Module will contain more than 3,000 articles from 19 Elsevier reference works.

Elsevier is participating in the FENS Forum 2016 Passport Competition. To qualify for the lottery, attendees must visit as many booths as possible in the exhibition hall to get their “passports” stamped by at least 50 percent of the participating companies. There will be an opportunity to receive three gifts from Elsevier:

  • A George Paxinos-signed copy of the MRI/DTI Atlas of the Rat Brain
  • A one-year online subscription to an Elsevier neuroscience journal
  • A one-year print/online subscription to a Cell Press journal

In order to meet content needs in neuroscience, Elsevier uses proprietary tools to identify the gaps in coverage of the topics. Editorial teams strategically fill those gaps with content written by key influencers in the field, giving students, faculty and researchers the content they need to answer challenging questions and improve outcomes. These new books, which will educate the next generation of neuroscientists and provide critical foundational content for information professionals, are key examples of how Elsevier is enabling science to drive innovation.
