933924 512868958750541 697525497 n First official Brain Computer Interface journal coming in January 2014

At last, there will be a printed journal where BCI researchers can submit their work to. It is called the Brain-Computer Interfaces published by Taylor & Francis, an international company originating in the UK that publishes books and academic journals. The BCI journal was announced and its importance was discussed at the recent BCI meeting at Pacific Grove, California.

The new BCI journal will have four issues a year. The first issue is planned to be published in January 2014.

The journal will focus on the following areas:

  • Development and user-centered evaluation of engineered BCI applications with emphasis on the analysis of what aspects are crucial to making the system work, in addition to straightforward assessment of its success.
  • Scientific investigation of patterns of brain activity that can, or show promise to be able to, be used to drive BCI applications.
  • Development and evaluation of signal processing methods that extract signal features, classify them, and otherwise translate brain signals into device commands.
  • New invasive and noninvasive methods to monitor and acquire brain signals.
  • Applications of BCI technology to understand human perception, affect, action, and various aspects of cognition and behavior.
  • Ethical and sociological implications of brain-computer interfacing applications.
  • Human factors and human-computer interaction (HCI) concerns in the design, development and evaluation of BCIs.
  • Clinical trials and individual case studies of the experimental therapeutic application of BCIs.
  • Behavioral studies of BCI use in humans and animals.
  • Studies of neurosurgical techniques relevant to BCIs.
  • Proposal, review and analysis of standards for BCI hardware, software and protocols.

The new printed journal is clearly a great opportunity for the whole BCI community to get together and have a more organized publication standard. The contribution towards this journal will help the BCI community to find other researchers for collaboration more easily.

A writer for publications including The New York Times and Wired, Clive Thompson is used to defending the latest trends in digital technology from naysayers and skeptics. In 2008, he was one of the first to describe how sites like Twitter were about more than sharing what you had for breakfast. Now he’s written his first book, Smarter Than You Think, an investigation of how technology is helping us to learn more and retain information longer. Clive took some time to talk with us about the new book, distraction, MOOCs, and how he uses technology with his kids.
