Neurochemical Journal reports latest findings in all areas of contemporary neurochemistry and other fields of relevance (including molecular biology, biochemistry, physiology, neuroimmunology, pharmacology) in an afford to expand our understanding of the functions of the nervous system. The journal presents papers on functional neurochemistry, nervous system receptors, neurotransmitters, myelin, chromaffin granules and other components of the nervous system, as well as neurophysiological and clinical aspects, behavioral reactions, etc.

Relevant topics include structure and function of the nervous system proteins, neuropeptides, nucleic acids, nucleotides, lipids, and other biologically active components. The journal is devoted to the rapid publication of regular papers containing the results of original research, reviews highlighting major developments in neurochemistry, short communications, new experimental studies that use neurochemical methodology, descriptions of new methods of value for neurochemistry, theoretical material suggesting novel principles and approaches to neurochemical problems, presentations of new hypotheses and significant findings, discussions, chronicles of congresses, meetings, and conferences with short presentations of the most sensational and timely reports.

PEER REVIEW

Neurochemical Journal is a peer reviewed journal. We use a single blind peer review format. The average period from submission to first decision is 30 days. The average rejection rate for submitted manuscripts is 52%. The final decision on the acceptance of an article for publication is made by the Editorial Board.

Any invited reviewer who feels unqualified or unable to review the manuscript due to the conflict of interests should promptly notify the editors and decline the invitation. Reviewers should formulate their statements clearly in a sound and reasoned way so that authors can use reviewer’s arguments to improve the manuscript. Personal criticism of the authors must be avoided. Reviewers should indicate in a review (i) any relevant published work that has not been cited by the authors, (ii) anything that has been reported in previous publications and not given appropriate reference or citation, (ii) any substantial similarity or overlap with any other manuscript (published or unpublished) of which they have personal knowledge.

  • Papers containing the results of original research, general and speculative reviews are rapidly published in the journal. Major developments in neurochemistry, descriptions of new neurochemical techniques as well as theoretical considerations suggesting novel principles and approaches to the topical problems are in the center of attention. Reader can find also chronicles of congresses and conferences with short review of the most sensational reports, presentations of new hypotheses and even advertisements for some reagents and equipment. The journal has a truly international character and serves as a bridge between neurochemists of many countries. It seems to be a unique contribution to the neuroscience literature. The journal key audience includes academics, practitioners and students in the field of studies.
