Publications and Preprints

Publication standards differ significantly between Computer Science, Neuroscience, and other fields. In CS, conference proceedings are the main venue for publications, with top conferences (e.g. NeurIPS, ICML, ICLR) being roughly equivalent to a mid-tier journal. In neuroscience, journal publications are the usual milestone, and conference abstracts are not considered "papers", but are referred to (e.g. OHBM, SFN, ISMRM).
