Scientific Data: After asking my question, I did a quick search and found one promising journal that will commence in 2014 called Scientific Data. Scientific Data is a new open-access, online-only publication for descriptions of scientifically valuable datasets. It introduces a new type of content called the Data Descriptor, which will combine ...

To touch on your broader question, as I understand getting full text publications in conferences are highly respected in computer science. In psychology and neuroscience (note I don't know so much about computational neuroscience), publishing papers in high impact journals is more respected in the field. While some conferences do have full-length papers, ...

I get the impression that good journal editors will get at least one reviewer who is skilled in the methodology used in the paper. The importance of this reviewer role would presumably vary with the statistical or other methodological complexity of the paper. That said, reviewing is well known to be imperfect particularly when it comes to checking all the ...

This does not really answer your question (because it doesn't deal in detail with methodological issues), but there is a nice journal article that deals with problems of the peer review process in general by evaluating "great scientific works of the past" from the perspective of current social sciences: Trafimov, D., & Rice, S. (2009). What if social ...

The Journal of Open Psychology Data: A great project spearheaded by Jelte M. Wicherts, longtime open science advocate. Unfortunately, it has only published one paper so far.

The numbers inside the parentheses are the degrees of freedom for the F-statistic. The second number is the within-group degrees of freedom. When you have the same number of subjects in all conditions, then the second number will be the number of subjects - the number of cells (conditions) in your design.

Unfortunately, I'm not sure there's a quick answer to the exact amount of overlap, but you may be able to get an estimate by comparing the list of journals included in Medline (http://www.nlm.nih.gov/archive/20130415/tsd/serials/lji.html.notice.html) to the list of journals covered by PsycINFO (http://www.apa.org/pubs/databases/psycinfo/coverage.aspx). Also, ...

There are several MedLine search engines, some of them requiring an (academic) account. You may want to use ISI Web of Knowledge - http://isiknowledge.com/medline, EbscoHost - http://search.ebscohost.com/login.asp?profile=web&defaultdb=cmedm, ProQuest - http://search.proquest.com/medline/advanced Ovid - http://gateway.ovid.com/autologin.html By ...

The F ratio statistic has a numerator and denominator degrees of freedom. Thus, you report: F (numerator_df, denominator_df) = F_value, p = ..., effect size = ... The numerator degrees of freedom relates to the factor of interest; the denominator degrees of freedom corresponds to the degrees of freedom for the error variance. The exact way that these ...

I do not know of any computational neuroscience conference with proceedings that is always held in Europe. Neural information processing systems (NIPS) was held in Europe only once recently, but back in US. (it was in Spain on 2011) International joint conference on neural networks (IJCNN) has minor section on computational neuroscience but it's mostly ...
