Scope Fluids and Barriers of the CNS is an open access, peer-reviewed journal that considers manuscripts on all CNS fluids and barrier systems in health and disease. Homeostatic maintenance of the internal environment of the nervous system through normal functioning of brain fluids and barriers is vital for health of the organism. The cerebrospinal fluid (CSF), its composition, circulation and absorption, has multiple roles in both normal and abnormal brain function and is closely associated with the parenchymal interstitial fluid and the neurovascular unit at the blood-brain barrier. The CNS fluids and barrier systems including the blood-CSF barrier, the blood-brain barrier, the blood-retinal barrier and the blood-nerve barriers, perform functions such as fluid secretion, chemical signalling, physical and chemical buffering, specialised directional transport and facilitation of immune surveillance.

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.

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.
