Nature Neuroscience published its first issue in May 1998. This new and innovative periodical is another offshoot of the prestigious journal Nature.
The "call for papers" offers a clear overview of the journal, emphasizing that the neurosciences represent one of the great intellectual frontiers of science, and many anticipate rapid growth of the field in the coming years. The stated objectives of Nature Neuroscience are to publish papers of the highest quality, particularly studies that provide fundamental insights into nervous system function. Areas of particular interest to the editorial board include molecular, cellular, systems, and cognitive neuroscience and computational modeling.
