Invertebrate Neuroscience will cease publications with the effect of January 1st, 2021. This journal is no longer accepting new submissions; however, it still accepts the revisions from the existing manuscripts.

Invertebrate Neuroscience publishes original articles, reviews and technical reports describing recent advances in the field of invertebrate neuroscience. The journal reports on research that exploits the simplicity and experimental tractability of the invertebrate preparations to underpin fundamental advances in neuroscience. Articles published in Invertebrate Neurosciences serve to highlight properties of signalling in the invertebrate nervous system that may be exploited in the field of antiparisitics, molluscicides and insecticides.

Aspects of particular interest include: functional analysis of the invertebrate nervous system; molecular neuropharmacology and toxicology; neurogenetics and genomics; functional anatomy; neurodevelopment; neuronal networks; and molecular and cellular mechanisms of behaviour and behavioural plasticity.

  • Reports on advances in invertebrate neurosciences
  • Highlights signaling properties and functional analysis of invertebrate nervous system
  • Covers also neurogenetics and genomics, neural networks, neuropharmacology
  • Fast turnaround times (Time to 1st decision: 40 days)
  • Open access option available
  • Fully compliant with NIH/Wellcome trust requirements
  • Accessible at almost 10,000 institutes worldwide

  • 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.
