How to publish in this journal


Molecular Pain is a peer-reviewed, open access journal that considers manuscripts in pain research at the cellular, subcellular and molecular levels. Molecular Pain provides a forum for molecular pain scientists to communicate their research findings in a targeted manner to others in this important and growing field. The field of molecular pain research has been rapidly expanding in recent years, and has great promise for the identification of highly specific and effective targets for the treatment of intractable pain. Molecular pain research addresses physiological and pathological pain at all levels whilst integrating pain research with molecular biology, genomics, proteomics, modern electrophysiology and neurobiology. Although several existing journals publish articles on classical pain research, none are specifically dedicated to molecular aspects of the field. Join the conversation about this journal

The set of journals have been ranked according to their SJR and divided into four equal groups, four quartiles. Q1 (green) comprises the quarter of the journals with the highest values, Q2 (yellow) the second highest values, Q3 (orange) the third highest values and Q4 (red) the lowest values.

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.

Total Documents

Evolution of the number of published documents. All types of documents are considered, including citable and non citable documents.

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.
