• Brain Topography is a Transformative Journal (TJ). When research is accepted for publication, authors can choose to publish using either the traditional publishing route OR  immediate gold Open Access   (Funding available! see https://www.springer.com/journal/10548/open-access-publishing)
  • Publishes clinical and basic research on cognitive neuroscience and functional neurophysiology
  • Appropriate venue for case/clinical studies from one or a cohort of patients/subjects that provide insights into the neural basis of a psychiatric or neurological impairment and/or the efficacy of a novel therapy

  • Firmly established as a forum for innovative methodologies and models

  • Publishes reviews, full-length papers, and short communications

  • Rapid turnaround: First decisions on submissions are typically made within 7 weeks

  • Rapid publication: Papers are published online on average 14 days after a paper’s acceptance

     

Brain Topography publishes clinical and basic research on cognitive neuroscience and functional neurophysiology using the full range of imaging techniques including EEG, MEG, fMRI, TMS, diffusion imaging, spectroscopy, intracranial recordings, lesion studies, and related methods. Submissions combining multiple techniques are particularly encouraged, as well as reports of new and innovative methodologies. Examinations of the function of a specific brain region or regions in patients or animal models would also be appropriate, provided that they demonstrate clear relevance and applicability to humans. Brain Topography publishes full-length Original Articles, Brief Communications, Reviews, and Editorials.

  • 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.
