Launched in 1981, JNeurosci is a multidisciplinary journal that publishes papers on a broad range of topics of general interest to those working on the nervous system.
JNeurosci is committed to providing a venue for the advancement of neuroscience research by
- Publishing and widely disseminating the best research representative of the breadth of neuroscience
- Ensuring the peer review system remains open, rapid, and fair
- Promoting outlets for discussion of neuroscience that are not available elsewhere, allowing for competing ideas, debate, and questions around science
