Dana Press Books

Welcome to the new Dana Press. After four years in hiatus, the Press returns with the publication of two new books, You’ve Got Some Explaining to Do: Advice for Neuroscientists Writing for Lay Readers and the Cerebrum Anthology 2013.

You’ve Got Some Explaining to Do, written by Jane Nevins, is a “must read” for neuroscientists writing for the general public. The author, who served as the first editor in chief of the Dana Press, brings more than 20 years of experience in translating neuroscience to lay readers. This is an easy-to-follow reference book where you can learn about your reader and your voice, common practices that sharpen your writing, and style.  You’ll want to keep it handy.        

 

Cerebrum 2013 Anthology

Cerebrum Anthology 2013 is back in book form by popular demand. The Anthology brings together more than a dozen articles and book reviews from the 2013 monthly Web edition. Cerebrum has had a loyal following since its inception in 1998. It offers inquisitive readers an opportunity to read about new and provocative ideas in neuroscience from a cross-section of prominent neuroscientists. This year’s articles include a look at lewy body dementia; the endocannabinoid system; ADHD; literacy; and fraud in science. Bruce S.McEwen, Ph.D., The Rockefeller University, provides an insightful overview in his Foreword.

 
Dana Press' former publications include sixteen written by Dana Alliance members and 13 e-books.

Proposals for new books will not be accepted. Currently, all Dana Press publications are in-house.
