Publication typeJournals
Scope Brain Research publishes papers reporting interdisciplinary investigations of nervous system structure, function and chemistry at all levels of resolution, from molecular to behavioral and social that are of general interest to the broad community of neuroscientists. Clinical investigations, Protocols (i.e. methods papers) and Minireviews will also be considered for publication if they provide significant insight into the structure or function of the nervous system, the pathophysiology of a disease, or its treatment. Computational and theoretical papers will also be considered. Reviews and Minireviews will generally be by invitation, but suggestions are welcomed.

The SJR is a size-independent prestige indicator that ranks journals by their 'average prestige per article'. It is based on the idea that 'all citations are not created equal'. SJR is a measure of scientific influence of journals that accounts for both the number of citations received by a journal and the importance or prestige of the journals where such citations come from It measures the scientific influence of the average article in a journal, it expresses how central to the global scientific discussion an average article of the journal is.

Citations per document

This indicator counts the number of citations received by documents from a journal and divides them by the total number of documents published in that journal. The chart shows the evolution of the average number of times documents published in a journal in the past two, three and four years have been cited in the current year. The two years line is equivalent to journal impact factor ™ (Thomson Reuters) metric.

External Cites per Doc 
Cites per Doc

Evolution of the number of total citation per document and external citation per document (i.e. journal self-citations removed) received by a journal's published documents during the three previous years. External citations are calculated by subtracting the number of self-citations from the total number of citations received by the journal’s documents.
