About the Journal

The International Journal of Brain Sciences is a peer-reviewed open-access journal launched in 2023 that publishes original research articles, reviews, case reports, and short communications on all aspects of brain sciences. The journal provides a platform for researchers, scholars, and clinicians from around the world to share their research findings and ideas in the field of brain sciences.

The journal encourages the submission of original research articles that report novel findings in any of these areas, as well as comprehensive reviews and meta-analyses that synthesize existing knowledge and identify gaps in our understanding. The journal also welcomes case reports and short communications that report interesting or unusual cases that provide insights into the mechanisms of brain function and dysfunction.
