The Journal of Molecular Neuroscience is committed to the rapid publication of original findings that increase our understanding of the molecular structure, function, and development of the nervous system. The criteria for acceptance of manuscripts will be scientific excellence, originality, and relevance to the field of molecular neuroscience. Manuscripts with clinical relevance are especially encouraged since the journal seeks to provide a means for accelerating the progression of basic research findings toward clinical utilization. All experiments described in the Journal of Molecular Neuroscience that involve the use of animal or human subjects must have been approved by the appropriate institutional review committee and conform to accepted ethical standards.

  • Presents original research that increases understanding of the molecular structure, function, and development of the nervous system
  • Publishes papers that reflect scientific excellence, originality, and relevance to the field of molecular neuroscience
  • Also offers mini-reviews, novel gene discoveries, and accelerated articles of special interest
  • 100% of authors who answered a survey reported that they would definitely publish or probably publish in the journal again

  • 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.
