neurogenetics presents research that contributes to better understanding of the genetic basis of normal and abnormal function of the nervous system. The journal publishes findings in humans and other organisms that help explain neurological disease mechanisms, and papers from many fields such as biophysics, cell biology, human genetics, neuroanatomy, neurochemistry, neurology, neuropathology, neurosurgery and psychiatry.

  • neurogenetics is a Transformative Journal (TJ). When research is accepted for publication, authors can choose to publish using either the traditional publishing route OR via immediate gold Open Access. Funding options available.

  • Announcement: COVID-19 impact on peer review

    As a result of the significant disruption that is being caused by the COVID-19 pandemic we are very aware that many researchers will have difficulty in meeting the timelines associated with our peer review process during normal times. Please do let us know if you need additional time. Our systems will continue to remind you of the original timelines but we intend to be highly flexible at this time.
