Frontiers in Neuroprosthetics is a Specialty Section of Frontiers in Neurology, Frontiers in Neuroscience and Frontiers in Psychiatry.
Frontiers in Neuroprosthetics is a specialty section of Frontiers in Neuroscience and is a first-tier electronic open access journal devoted to studies of brain-machine interfaces (BMI) and neuroprostheses. The journal aims to bring together the most outstanding work on neuroprosthetics to develop and explore neuroprosthetic devices and strategies in humans and animals, including basic research which applies BMI methodologies to study the neural and behavioral mechanisms underlying sensorimotor learning and behavior. The journal will consider original research articles on neuroprosthetics in all relevant areas including the physiological, biophysical and behavioral principles of neuroprosthetic devices, and their theoretical, experimental and clinical applications. The journal will also publish work on the mathematical and physical algorithms and technological and medical innovations related to neuroprosthetics. Frontiers in Neuroprosthetics invites review articles that synthesize knowledge on various aspects of neuroprosthetic approaches and also perspective and opinion articles that discuss and debate hot topics in neuroprosthetics.
Frontiers in Neuroprosthetics welcomes the following tier 1 article types
: Book Review, Clinical Case Study, Clinical Trial, Editorial, General Commentary, Hypothesis & Theory, Methods, Mini Review, Opinion, Original Research, Perspective, Review, Specialty Grand Challenge and Technology Report.
All articles must be submitted directly to Frontiers in Neuroprosthetics, where they are processed by the associate and review editors of the Specialty Section.
All articles published in Frontiers in Neuroprosthetics will be subjected to the Frontiers Evaluation System
after online publication. Authors of the original research articles
with the highest impact, as judged by many expert readers, will be invited by the Field Chief Editor of Frontiers in Neurology, Frontiers in Neuroscience and Frontiers in Psychiatry to write a prestigious Frontiers Focused Review
- a tier 2 article. This is referred to as "democratic tiering
". The author selection is based on article-level impact metrics of Original Research published in the Frontiers Specialties. Focused Reviews are centered on the original discovery, place it in a wider context, and aim to address the wider audience across all of Bioengineering and Biotechnology, Neurology, Neuroscience and Psychiatry.
