Neuroscience Letters is devoted to the rapid publication of short, high-quality papers of interest to the broad community of neuroscientists. Only papers which will make a significant addition to the literature in the field will be published. Papers in all areas of neuroscience - 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. Clinical studies will also be published if they provide new information about organization or actions of the nervous system, or provide new insights into the neurobiology of disease.
Papers that are primarily devoted to psychological or philosophical questions, that use unvalidated methodology, or that fall outside of the realm of neuroscience, will not be published.
Neuroscience Letters is published both on the web (in ScienceDirect - click here), and as a print journal. Publication in the web version of Neuroscience Letters will occur within five weeks of acceptance, and in the hard copy within seven weeks. Particularly important papers may be published more rapidly within a Plenary Article section of the journal.
