Journal of Computational Neuroscience 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.

Journal of Computational Neuroscience welcomes full length original papers, rapid communications, review articles, and perspective papers describing theoretical and experimental work relevant to computations in the brain and nervous system. Papers that combine theoretical and experimental work are especially encouraged. Primarily, theoretical papers should deal with issues of obvious relevance to biological nervous systems. Experimental papers should have implications for the computational function of the nervous system, and may report results using any of a variety of approaches including anatomy, electrophysiology, biophysics, imaging, and molecular biology. Papers investigating the physiological mechanisms underlying pathologies of the nervous system, or papers that report novel technologies of interest to researchers in computational neuroscience, including advances in neural data analysis methods with the potential to yield insights into the function of the nervous system, are also welcomed. It is anticipated that all levels of analysis from cognitive to cellular will be represented in the Journal of Computational Neuroscience. However, papers that are primarily devoted to new methods or analyses should demonstrate their utility for the investigation of mechanisms or principles of neural function.

Prospective authors are strongly encouraged to consult recent issues of  the Journal to be sure that their submissions are in scope.   The  Journal focuses on understanding brain function at the level of neurons and circuits via computational and model-based approaches that are tied to biology and are experimentally testable.  Examples of work that is not within the Journal's scope include (i) presentations of signal-processing algorithms that are purely methodological or for biomedical applications such as brain-computer interfaces or seizure detection, and (ii) computational analysis of genomic data without a clear tie-in to neural mechanisms of brain function.

  • New Article Type “Perspective” now open for submissions

    To provide a forum for authors to present new ideas, comment on published material, or re-interpret data, a new article type was set up at this journal: “Perspective”. Articles should be brief and timely, and of wide interest to the computational neuroscience community.


    The manuscript should not exceed 3000 words and 1 figure or table, and it should not report any new data, but could re-analyze existing data or propose a new interpretation of published data. A fast publication is expected.

  • 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.
