Aims, Scope and About
The Scientific Journal of Neurometry (SJN) is a journal designed by the Brazilian Society of Neurometry.
Tipo: Periódicos eletrônicos
This journal seeks articles with the objective of developing a vehicle for debate and dissemination of scientific works in various areas of health, education, sports and personal performance, correlated with neurometry.
The evolution will be to supply the need in several areas and increase the stimulus to research from the early stages of the professional trained. The SJN seeks to collaborate in the process of dissemination of scientific and technological production, showing the ability of professional researchers and also students in the process of Initiation to Scientific and Technological Education in producing, elaborating and disseminating their scientific productions relevant for the transformation and improvements in science and technology. We will increasingly fill the academic gap with publications willing to encourage and disseminate written work on neurometry. This omission, whether voluntary or unthought, perpetuates inaccuracies in the training and criticism of professionals, which ultimately prove unable to concatenate the information acquired with the questions of reality. Therefore, for the valorization of the research, it is necessary to stimulate the debate and the social utility of the produced knowledge. Through tools such as the one we presently present - a space that disseminates the quality academic production of members and professionals from all over the country and abroad.
The scientific journal of neurometry accepts for publication unpublished articles resulting from theoretical studies, research and experience reports. The publication of articles is subject to the opinion of members Scientific Committee or Ad hoc Collaborators. The selection of articles for publication takes as its basic criteria its contribution to the areas of knowledge accepted by the Journal and its editorial line, as well as as the consistency and rigor of the theoretical-methodological approach.
Any changes in structure or content suggested by the Editorial Board will only be incorporated upon agreement of the authors. With this, RCN will favor the diffusion of intellectual production from work completed or in the process of investigation coming from different sources within of higher education.
We reinforce this space as a possibility to encourage active posture in the learning process. We strive for a teaching method that promotes not only the reproduction of content but the construction of reasoning and argumentation. We argue that the change of posture through actions more proactive, will contribute to the formation of more capable and competent professionals in their Social.
We appreciate your confidence in our initiative and wish you a great read!

Submission of a manuscript implies: that the work described has not been published before (except in the form of an abstract or as part of a published lecture, review, or thesis); that it is not under consideration for publication elsewhere; that its publication has been approved by all coauthors, if any, as well as by the responsible authorities at the institute where the work has been carried out; that, if and when the manuscript is accepted for publication, the authors agree to automatic transfer of the copyright to the publisher; that the manuscript will not be published elsewhere in any language without the consent of the copyright holders; that written permission of the copyright holder is obtained by the authors for material used from other copyrighted sources; and that any costs associated with obtaining this permission are the authors' responsibility.
Preparation of Manuscripts
Authors are strongly encouraged to submit manuscripts online. This will allow even quicker and more efficient processing of your manuscript.
Manuscripts should be typewritten or prepared on a word processor, with all material double-spaced, on one side of letter-sized paper, with suitably wide margins. All pages should be numbered consecutively, beginning with page 1, the title page. Tables and figures should be numbered serially, and legends to illustrations should be prepared on separate sheets. Tables and figures will be placed near their first mention in the text; all tables and figures must be referred to in the manuscript.
Title Page: The following elements must be included:
Abstract: Each article is to be preceded by a succinct abstract, of up to 250 words, that highlights the objectives, methods, results, and conclusions of the paper.
Key Words: To identify the subjects under which the article may be indexed, 6-10 key words should be provided.
References: In the text, references to the literature should be by author and year; where there are two authors, both should be named; with three or more only the first author's name plus "et al." need be given. The list at the end of the paper should include only works mentioned in the text and should be arranged alphabetically by name of first author. References should be cited as follows:
Responsibility for the accuracy of bibliographic references rests entirely with the author, who is requested to use as few "in press" citations as possible. In press citations must include the name of the journal that has accepted the paper.
Footnotes: Those in the text should be numbered consecutively. Footnotes to the title or authors of the article are marked by asterisks and placed on the title page.
Sequences: Sequences that are used merely as data points in statistical calculations or graphs should, if possible, be referred to by their accession numbers only. Authors should be quoted by name when their sequences are discussed individually or presented in alignments.
Illustrations: These should be suitable for reproduction, and should clarify or shorten the text. Information provided in figure legends should not be repeated in the text. Figures and graphs should always be mentioned in the text and numbered with Arabic numerals. Preferred file formats include .tif and .jpg; please see Manuscript Central for more details.
Color Figures: Color can be used without charge for the electronic edition of the journal.
Computer Software: Any software referred to among methods used must be obtainable either commercially or upon request from the authors. In submitting a manuscript to the Journal, authors accept the obligation to furnish upon request any information necessary for reproducing the methodologies on which their results are based. The methods used for preparing and analyzing alignments must be stated precisely.
Mathematical Equations: These should be clearly prepared, and annotated if necessary. Primes and dots must be called to the attention of the typesetter. Differentiate legibly between number 1, capital letter I, and lower case letter l. Use fractional exponents instead of root signs and the solidus (/) for fractions wherever their use will save vertical space. Use exp () notation when the exponent is sizable. All equations must be numbered sequentially, on the right-hand side of the column, in parenthetic Arabic numerals.
Organisms: Must be identified by their scientific binomen.
Homology: The term should not be used in the sense of structural similarity but only in its biological sense of derivation of structures from a common ancestral structure.
Abbreviations, Symbols, Units, etc.: Acronyms and symbols must be defined at first mention, in titles, abstracts, as well as within the text. For nomenclature, abbreviations, symbols, and units, authors should follow internationally accepted rules, including those adopted by the Commission on Biochemical Nomenclature.

Open Access Statement
This is an open access journal which means that all content is freely available without charge to the user or his/her institution. Users are allowed to read, download, copy, distribute, print, search, or link to the full texts of the articles, or use them for any other lawful purpose, without asking prior permission from the publisher or the author. This is in accordance with the BOAI definition of open access.
Policy and Action for Plagiarism
Plagiarism is the unethical act of copying someone else’s prior ideas, processes, results or words without explicit acknowledgement of the original author and source. Self-plagiarism occurs when an author utilizes large part of his/her own previously published work without using appropriate references. This can range from getting the same manuscript published in multiple journals to modifying a previously published manuscript with some new data.
Scientific journal neurometry (SJN) respects intellectual property and aims at protecting and promoting original work of its authors. Manuscripts containing plagiarized material are against the standards of quality, research and innovation. Hence, all authors submitting articles to SJN are expected to abide ethical standards and abstain from plagiarism, in any form. In case, an author is found to be suspected of plagiarism in a submitted or published manuscript then, SJN shall contact the author (s) to submit his / her (their) explanation within two weeks, which may be forwarded to the Fact Finding Committee (FFC) constituted for the purpose, for further course of action. If SJN does not receive any response from the author within the stipulated time period, then the Director / Dean / Head of the concerned College, Institution or Organization or the Vice Chancellor of the University to which the author is affiliated shall be contacted to take strict action against the concerned author.
SJN shall take serious action against published manuscripts found to contain plagiarism and shall completely remove them from SJN website and other third party websites where the paper is listed and indexed. The moment, any article published in SJN database is reported to be plagiarized, will SJN constitute a Fact Finding Committee to investigate the same. Upon having established that the manuscript is plagiarized from some previously published work, SJN shall support the original author and manuscript irrespective of the publisher and may take any or all of the following immediate actions or follow the additional course of actions as recommended by the committee:
Quality control system (peer review)
Scientific Journal Neurometry (SNJ) is having ISSN 2594-438X (online), semiannual international journal, being published since year 2017.
Reviewers play a central role in scholarly publishing. SJN uses peer review process. This means that the reviewer(s) of the paper won’t get to know the identity of the author(s), and the author(s) won’t get to know the identity of the reviewer(s). Peer review helps validate research, establish a method by which it can be evaluated, and increase networking possibilities within research communities. Despite criticisms, peer review is still the only widely accepted method for research validation.
All submitted papers will be reviewed by peer review process which may take minimum 01 to 03 weeks from the date of submission. We are advising to all the author(s), do not submit same paper to the multiple journals. You should wait for review status of paper.
SJN is committed to prompt evaluation and publication of fully accepted papers. To maintain a high-quality publication, all submissions undergo a rigorous review process. Characteristics of the peer review process are as follows:
SJN strictly uses following peer review process:

Explanatory notes regarding SJN’s license agreement
As an aid to our authors, the following paragraphs provide some brief explanations concerning the Creative Commons licenses that apply to the articles published in SJN-published journals and the rationale for why we have chosen these licenses.
The Creative Commons Attribution License (CC BY), of which CC BY 4.0 is the most recent version, was developed to facilitate open access as defined in the founding documents of the movement, such as the 2003 Berlin Declaration. Open access content has to be freely available online, and through licensing their work under CC BY authors grant users the right to unrestricted dissemination and re-use of the work, with only the one proviso that proper attribution is given to authors. This liberal licensing is best suited to facilitate the transfer and growth of scientific knowledge. The Open Access Scholarly Publishers Association (OASPA) therefore strongly recommends the use of CC BY for the open access publication of research literature, and many research funders worldwide either recommend or mandate that research they have supported be published under CC BY. Examples for such policies include funders as diverse as the Wellcome Trust, the Australian Governments, the European Commission’s Horizon 2020 framework programme, or the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.
The default use of the Creative Commons 1.0 Public Domain Dedication waiver (CC0 or CC zero) for data published within articles follows the same logic, facilitating maximum benefit and the widest possible re-use of knowledge. It is also the case that in some jurisdictions copyright does not apply to data. CC0 waives all potential copyrights, to the extent legally possible, as well as the attribution requirement. The waiver applies to data, not to the presentation of data. If, for instance, a table or figure displaying research data is reproduced, CC BY and the requirement to attribute applies. Increasingly, however, new insights are possible through the use of big data techniques, such as data mining, that harness the entire corpus of digital data. In such cases attribution is often technically infeasible due to the sheer mass of the data mined, making CC0 the most suitable licensing tool for research outputs generated from such innovative techniques.
It is important to differentiate between legal requirements and community norms. It is first and foremost a community norm, not a law, that within the scientific community attribution mostly takes the form of citation. It is also a community norm that researchers are expected to refer to their sources, which usually takes the form of citation. Across all cases of research reuse (including data, code, etc), community norms will apply as is appropriate for the situation: researchers will cite their sources where it is feasible, regardless of the applicable license. CC0 therefore covers those instances that lie beyond long-established community norms. The overall effect, then, of CC0 for data is to enable further use, without any loss of citations. For further explanation, we recommend you refer to our Open Data page.
In the following, we provide the licenses’ summaries as they can be found on the Creative Commons website.
The Creative Commons Attribution License 4.0 provides the following summary (where ‘you’ equals ‘the user’):
