"Case Studies in Neuroscience" provides a forum for human or animal subjects studies that cannot be replicated experimentally
(e.g., they report the neurological effects of a rare disease), but provide unique insights into mechanisms of neural function
(either at the cellular or systems level).
Clinical case studies that describe the treatment of a patient with a rare medical condition are NOT appropriate for this category, and will be rejected without peer review. Acceptable submissions must provide insights into mechanisms of neural function, and/or how those mechanisms are altered by a disease process. Authors are encouraged to consult with the Editor-in-Chief to determine if their manuscript qualifies for submission as "Case Studies in Neuroscience".
A Reimagined Journal of Neurophysiology Arrives Next January!
Our transition to
an entirely new platform for hosting the
Journal of Neurophysiology is well underway, and will be complete by the end of 2017. Our new platform will be amongst the most advanced in the industry, and will provide a highly upgraded user experience.
Submit your paper today to be amongst the first published on our new platform!
Improvements offered by the new platform include the following:
Attractive and easy-to-use interface
Responsive design (optimized for any screen size)
Ability to embed streaming audio and video in an article
Better display of supplemental files
Enhanced and accessible article statistics (both number of "reads" and social media discussions)
Enhanced article PDFs
Every Article Highlighted via Social Media
We now highlight all articles published in the
Journal of Neurophysiology through social media, and also provide the opportunity for authors of all accepted papers to participate in an audio or video podcast related to their article.
We can work with authors to choose the best social media venue to highlight their article, and link the article to the authors' institutional, lab, or personal social media accounts.
Since its founding in 1938, the
Journal of Neurophysiology has published many of the seminal papers in neuroscience. We highlight the most important articles published in the
Journal in our
Collection of Classic Articles and through our "Throwback Thursday" social media promotions.
Please help us identify additional seminal papers published in the Journal of Neurophysiology.
All authors of manuscripts accepted by the Journal of Neurophysiology are encouraged to participate in a
Podcast to highlight their paper. Invitations are included in article acceptance letters, and authors are welcome to
contact the Editor-in-Chief for more information.
Altmetric to determine how often an article is mentioned in social media, press releases, etc. This online discussion often begins with our
highlighting an article in a Podcast or through postings on Facebook or Twitter. The following recent articles were discussed the most in April:
Articles published in the
Journal of Neurophysiology are widely indexed and promoted via a number of mechanisms, and as a consequence are extensively read. Manuscripts submitted for
Calls for Papers are particularly popular with readers.
The following articles published in the last six months were the most read in April:
