All computational neuroscientists are invited to participate in the 
election of authors for the Encyclopedia of Computational Neuroscience, 
which is hosted by scholarpedia.org – the free peer-reviewed encyclopedia.

Scholarpedia is a synthesis of Encyclopedia Britannica and Wikipedia. It 
feels and looks like Wikipedia, with the exception that
(1) Each article is written by an expert.
(2) Each article is anonymously peer reviewed to ensure accurate and 
reliable information.
(3) Each article has a curator - typically its author -- who is 
responsible for its content.
(4) Any modification of the article needs to be approved by the curator 
before it appears in the final, approved version.

Currently, Scholarpedia hosts Encyclopedia of Computational 
Neuroscience, Encyclopedia of Dynamical Systems, and Encyclopedia of 
Computational Intelligence. All will be published in a printed form.

A unique feature of Scholarpedia is that its authors are either invited 
by the editor-in-chief or elected by the public - you. Public election 
of authors ensures fairness in assigning articles to the corresponding 
experts in each field. You are invited to register as a ‘Scholar’ using 
the invitation key ‘CNS’. This would allow you to vote for authors, 
nominate people for articles, and even initiate election for new 
articles. Self-nominations are welcomed.
