Scope Neurodegenerative Diseases is a bimonthly, multidisciplinary journal for the publication and discussion of advances in research on all aspects of neurodegenerative diseases. The journal focuses on Alzheimer disease, Parkinson disease, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, and Huntington disease, but will also welcome articles on related neurological and psychiatric disorders. A particular thematic focus is set on the interplay between vascular pathology, neuroinflammatory change, and the progression of neurodegenerative disease. In addition to clinical and basic science studies, brief methodological papers are welcome. This includes the emerging fields of statistical genetics, clinical and preclinical neuroimaging, novel algorithms of biomedical image computing, and basic science approaches to elucidate mechanisms of neurodegenerative disease. Neurodegenerative Diseases accepts high-quality papers in the form of brief reports, original research, or review articles from a broad spectrum of scientific research areas ranging from neuroscience and genetics to clinical and preclinical neuroimaging and biomarker studies, molecular and cell biology as well as pharmacology. All articles will undergo rigorous scientific as well as statistical/bioinformatic review to ensure excellence.

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.

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.
