  • Impact factor: 2.9
Brain Research is dedicated to publishing the highest quality and greatest impact articles within the ever-evolving field of Neuroscience. We recognize how technology has changed the way scientific breakthroughs are communicated and Brain Research is committed to serving as a dynamic journal meeting the needs of the neuroscience research community. We now offer multiple formats for scientists to share their work with the community. These include Short Reports, Technology Developments, and Commentaries, in addition to standard research articles and reviews that the journal has published in its storied 50-year history. Brain Research is a broad-format journal accepting manuscripts from across the international neuroscience community that range in scope from issues in fundamental neurobiology to translational and clinical neuroscience, there are contemporary themes within neuroscience that our Editorial Board has identified that are of particular innovation and interest because of their innovation and importance, highlighted below. The journal is further committed to studies that investigate sex-differences as a powerful cross-cutting variable within these high-interest areas. Consistent with our mission, however, Brain Research remains enthusiastic to publish any neuroscience-oriented work that advances the field in a meaningful way. Neurodegenerative Diseases and Dementia - molecular insights into the mechanism of disease and preclinical models Psychiatric diseases, autism spectrum disorders - preclinical models and insights into mechanisms underlying neuropsychiatric disorders Neuromodulation - optogenetics, DREADDs, deep brain stimulation, TMS, tDCS are all creating new levels of control and intervention in brain function in both the preclinical and clinical settings fMRI, ERP and other "windows into the brain" - quantitative approaches to cognitive neuroscience and real-time measures are rapidly advancing our understanding of the brain Stem cell biology/neurodevelopment - Emerging developments in stem cell biology are changing the way we view, and study, neurodevelopment, and represent an exciting interface of technology and biology Article Types: Research Article - Standard submission, graphical abstract required Review - Standard submission, graphical abstract required Short Report - High impact, 3 figure max, expedited review, one-round only, can be moved to Research Article if major revisions are requested and interest is strong, graphical abstract required Neurotech Report - A methods paper whose impact is based purely on a technical or methodological advance, does not need to be hypothesis-driven science, graphical abstract required Point-Counterpoint - A pair of articles addressing a contemporary debate or controversy within a field - can be broad or very focused in nature, merged graphical abstract required

Cognition

  • ISSN: 0010-0277
  • 5 Year impact factor: 4
  • Impact factor: 3.4
International Journal of Cognitive Science Cognition is an international journal that publishes theoretical and experimental papers on the study of the mind. It covers a wide variety of subjects concerning all the different aspects of cognition, ranging from experimental studies of behavior and of the brain to formal analysis. Papers will be selected on the basis of their scientific quality, their degree of innovation and their unambiguous theoretical advance to the study of cognition. Paper's overall soundness of the argument and degree of empirical motivation, especially from converging sources, are more important than adherence to specific methodological principles. Studies that selectively focus on the cognitive and neural mechanisms that underlie problems with cognition in clinical populations or on purely methodological questions fall outside the scope of Cognition. Because Cognition enjoys a wide readership from many disciplines, authors should explicitly consider the general theoretical issues raised by their work and its relevance to other topics and methods. Materials should describe work done and methods used in a clear and explicit manner (allowing reproduction of the methods by others). Cognition occasionally publishes special issues devoted to a research area that has seen rapid recent progress, promising new approaches, and convergence among different disciplines. Contributions: • Full theoretical and experimental papers on the study of the mind. •Brief articles reporting original empirical findings, major theoretical advances or crucial developments that warrant rapid communication to the scientific community •Proposals for special issues on a new and important area in the field •Discussions Reviewers please refer to Editorial Policy on Reviewing for Cognition. Cognition publishes many of the most important papers in cognitive science and is the premier international and interdisciplinary journal in the field. It is required reading for anyone who wishes to keep up to date in this exciting research area.

Cognitive Psychology

  • ISSN: 0010-0285
  • 5 Year impact factor: 3.8
  • Impact factor: 2.6
Cognitive Psychology publishes articles that make important theoretical contributions in any area of cognition, including memory, attention, perception, language processing, categorization, thinking, and reasoning. The development and decline of cognitive processes as a function of maturation and aging are also relevant topics. Cognitive Psychology specializes in longer, more integrative articles that have a major impact on theories of cognition. We welcome submissions that use modeling or neuroscientific approaches, literature reviews, or incisive experiments to provide a substantial theoretical advance. Authors are strongly encouraged to use open science practices and should be prepared to share their data, model code, and analysis scripts. Benefits to authors We also provide many author benefits, such as free PDFs, a liberal copyright policy, special discounts on Elsevier publications and much more.
