Brain Structure & Function offers free color in print and online for all its papers!
- Brain Structure & Function publishes research that provides insight into brain structure−function relationships. Studies published here integrate data spanning from molecular, cellular, developmental, and systems architecture to the neuroanatomy of behavior and cognitive functions. BS&F does not publish purely clinical or neuropathological papers except in cases where the work actually contributes to the understanding of normal brain structure and function. Research on the peripheral nervous system is not the focus of BS&F.
- Studies of the mammalian nervous system are central to the journal, yet coverage may range beyond this taxon. Methodologies include modern tracing, immunocytochemistry and neuroimaging as well as genetic methods, neuroinformatics (atlases, databases and internet tools), statistical techniques that support the integration of cellular and systems-level anatomical and functional data, and genetic/molecular/electrophysiological approaches to understanding brain organization.
- The journal publishes full-length papers, short communications (maximum five printed pages including figures and references), reviews and letters to the editors that foster a vivid discussion of current topics.
- Methods papers that fit into the mission of the journal are also welcome.

We are pleased to announce an open Call for Papers for a new Brain Structure and Function special issue, Guest Edited by Michel Thiebaut de Schotten and Christian Beckmann.
With the disproportionate increase in brain size, human brain evolution has distributed different functions in the left and the right hemisphere.
Putatively, an asymmetrical organisation optimises processing time; however, this is at the expense of reduced resilience against localised injury. Since Roger Sperry’s Nobel prize for his discoveries concerning the functional specialisation of the cerebral hemispheres, a lot of progress has been made towards quantitative characterisation of functional and structural markers.
Nevertheless, a new comprehensive vision of the brain structures and functions asymmetry is missing.
Therefore with the present special issue entitled “Asymmetry of brain structures and functions,” we invite authors to submit their original article reviews or viewpoints on the link between the asymmetry of structure and function, their presentation across different species, relationship with other quantitative measures, their relationship with brain disorder as well as their impact on recovery.
Deadline for submissions: November 15th 2020
Articles should be submitted via Editorial Manager. For queries about this series, please contact the Guest Editors.
This award is presented to the authors of the article deemed by the senior editorial team to be the journal's best publication of the previous calendar year.
The associated prize money will be granted to the first author of the winning article.
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.
