Neuroscience Letters is devoted to the rapid publication of short, high-quality articles of interest to the broad community of neuroscientists. Only articles which will make a significant addition to the literature in the field will be published. Manuscripts in all areas of neuroscience, including molecular, cellular, developmental, systems, behavioral and cognitive, as well as computational, will be considered for publication.
Submission of laboratory investigations that shed light on disease mechanisms is encouraged. Special Issues, edited by Guest Editors to cover new and rapidly-moving areas, will include invited Mini-Reviews. Regular Mini-Reviews are also by invitation only, or in response to the Editor-in-Chief's approval of a pre-submission enquiry (see the Guide for Authors for detailed instructions).
Clinical studies will be published if they provide new information about organization or actions of the nervous system, or provide new insights into the neurobiology of disease. Neuroscience Letters does not publish Case Reports, Meta-analyses, or Literature Reviews in either the basic or clinical sciences.
