Dear Colleagues, 

It is with great pleasure that I invite you to contribute to a Special Issue for Frontiers. The topic description can be found on its homepage via the link below. We look forward to your boundary-pushing contributions in this exciting area of psychology, neuroscience and other related disciplines. 

In collaboration with Frontiers in Psychology, section Perception Science, we are organizing a Research Topic titled "Real-world unisensory and multisensory processing: Perceptual and neural mechanisms in complex natural scene processing”, hosted by Jason Sherwin, Jeremy Gaston, Kelvin Oie. As host editor, I would like to encourage you to contribute to this topic.

Frontiers, a Swiss open-access publisher, recently partnered with Nature Publishing Group to expand its researcher-driven Open Science platform. Frontiers articles are rigorously peer-reviewed, can be disseminated freely and are widely read by your colleagues and by the broader scientific and medical research communities.

The idea behind a research topic is to create an organized, comprehensive collection of several contributions, as well as a forum for discussion and debate. Contributions can be articles describing original research, methods, hypothesis & theory, opinions, etc.

We have created a homepage on the Frontiers website (Frontiers in Psychology, section Perception Science) where all articles will appear after peer-review and where participants in the topic will be able to hold relevant discussions:

Frontiers will also compile an e-book, as soon as all contributing articles are published, that can be used in classes, be sent to foundations that fund your research, to journalists and press agencies, or to any number of other organizations.

Among others, we have contacted the following authors:
Bruno Lucio Giordano
David C Jangraw : author
Edward A Vessel : author
Daniel P Ferris : author
Bill Geisler
Peter Gerhardstein
Giulio Tononi : author
Uri Hasson : author
Jacek Dmochowski : author
Joel Snyder
Jordan Muraskin : author
Tzyy-Ping Jung : author
Klaus Gramman : author
Linbi Hong : author
Andreas Lozano : author 

As such, a manuscript accepted for publication incurs a publishing fee, which varies depending on the article type. Research Topic manuscripts receive a significant discount on publishing fees. Please take a look at this fee table: http://www.frontiersin.org/about/PublishingFees.

Once published, your articles will remain free to access for all readers, and will be indexed in PubMed and other academic archives. As an author in Frontiers, you retain the copyright to your own papers and figures.

I would be delighted if you considered participating in this Research Topic.

Should you choose to participate, please confirm by sending me a quick email and then your abstract no later than Jun 27, 2014 using the following link: http://www.frontiersin.org/submissioninfo 

Please note that the deadline for manuscript submission is on: Dec 19, 2014

Since I am using the Frontiers system to manage this topic, I would really appreciate if you could also please indicate your decision by clicking on one of the links below.

AGREE to Participate 

DECLINE to Participate
