Submission Guidelines:

Prospective authors are invited to submit full-length papers including theoretical or empirical research articles, case studies, proposals, analyses, surveys, tutorials, editorials and pedagogical manuscripts. The submission of an article implies that the work is original and is not under review or copyright protected elsewhere. All submitted papers will be assessed in a double-blind peer review process based on the quality, originality, clarity, and significance of the content. Authors of accepted papers will have the opportunity to make revisions to their manuscripts and take into consideration reviewers' comments and suggestions.

Types of manuscripts may include but are not limited to:

1. Primary Research Reports: Full articles and brief communications, each restricted to 10,000 words overall, with exceptions. Articles include but are not limited to: toolboxes, which provide a critical overview of a method or technology that is becoming widely used; reviews, which provide an overview of a single theme or topic for the broad brain sciences audience; disease-focused articles, which provide brief overviews of a neural disease or syndrome and describe how that disorder might be linked to basic neural mechanisms.
2. Analyses: Articles that offer a comprehensive comparative examination of technologies, methods or reagents of key importance for a field of research, leading to important practical conclusions about their performance. Analyses may also report a new analysis of existing large datasets that lead to a novel, exciting or arresting conclusion.
3. Visions: Papers that present new ideas, theories and paradigms for the field of brain sciences. Vision papers may have up to 100 references and are usually no longer than 15,000 words, including figure legends.
