  • Unique venue for comparing and contrasting the full range of neurodevelopmental disorders
  • Publishes topical article collections including ‘Fragile X premutation’ and ‘Reward processing in autism’
  • 100% of authors surveyed in 2016 would recommend the journal to a colleague

Journal of Neurodevelopmental Disorders provides a unique venue for interdisciplinary research across the full range of neurodevelopmental disorders. Integrating neurology, developmental neurobiology, genetics, psychiatry and psychology, we compare and contrast the phenomenology, mechanisms and etiologies that underlie neurodevelopmental disorders, furthering our knowledge and understanding of these complex conditions. As of 2018, the Journal of Neurodevelopmental Disorders will be publishing an annual article collection in collaboration with the NICHD-funded Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities Research Centers (IDDRCs).

    Aims and Scope


    Journal of Neurodevelopmental Disorders is an open access journal that integrates current, cutting-edge research across a number of disciplines, including neurobiology, genetics, cognitive neuroscience, psychiatry and psychology. The journal’s primary focus is on the pathogenesis of neurodevelopmental disorders including autism, fragile X syndrome, tuberous sclerosis, Turner Syndrome, 22q Deletion Syndrome, Prader-Willi and Angelman Syndrome, Williams syndrome, lysosomal storage diseases, dyslexia, specific language impairment and fetal alcohol syndrome. With the discovery of specific genes underlying neurodevelopmental syndromes, the emergence of powerful tools for studying neural circuitry, and the development of new approaches for exploring molecular mechanisms, interdisciplinary research on the pathogenesis of neurodevelopmental disorders is now increasingly common. Journal of Neurodevelopmental Disorders provides a unique venue for researchers interested in comparing and contrasting mechanisms and characteristics related to the pathogenesis of the full range of neurodevelopmental disorders, sharpening our understanding of the etiology and relevant phenotypes of each condition.
