R-fMRI efforts are being pursued in laboratories around the world. However, labs differ widely in their access to feedback from knowledgeable colleagues. For this reason, the R-fMRI Network and PRN preprint service feature an online feedback and comment system. Such early feedback will be helpful for authors in revising and improving their articles for later submission to traditional peer review. PRN commenters will be acknowledged for their contribution in later publication, provided they give permission for being acknowledged. We have invited a number of R-fMRI experts to serving as consultants for The R-fMRI Network and Preprints of the R-fMRI Network (PRN). Each consultant is expected to comment on at least three PRN papers per six-month period.
Here is the list of PRN consultants (in their order of joining); the list will continue to increase as new consultants join.
