World-class research. Ultimate impact.
More on impact ›
Neurogenomics explores interactions among genotypes, phenotypes, and the environment, using a range of genomic and bioinformatic approaches to synthesize data sets that capture multiple levels of nervous system function — among them biochemical, cellular, physiological, behavioral, and cognitive. We welcome large-scale studies of sequence variants, transcriptomes, proteomes, and epigenetic modifications, and their linkage to function and disease; as well as exploratory and synthetic studies, and those probing specific molecular mechanisms associated with large genomic data sets and multivariate analyses.
Neurogenomics’ scope is broad, encompassing studies ranging from genetic to evolutionary; descriptive to experimental; technical to theoretical; comparative to clinical. To fulfill our mission of covering the leading edge of the discipline, we publish original research articles, reviews, commentaries, and meta-analyses, along with reports and updates on open-access databases and web resources related to both genomics and neuroscience.
Submissions to Neurogenomics should encompass aspects of the nervous system or behavior and should have an omics component or genome-wide scale. Work that is tightly focused on specific mechanisms or small sets of gene variants (e.g., single gene association studies) may be more suitable elsewhere.
The editorial board and reviewers of the section are sympathetic to the challenges of publishing and presenting large and diverse genomics and neuroscience data sets. We support the submission of not only manuscripts but original data and resources. Contributions are evaluated on the basis of the quantity, quality, and utility of data sets and their annotation, as well as on the basis of the significance of the associated conclusions and ideas. In collaboration with the International Neuroinformatics Coordinating Facility, Neurogenomics supports massive appendix files and provides stable and well-annotated links to Internet resources. Both the scope and content of Neurogenomics are complementary to those of the journal Frontiers in Molecular Neuroscience.

Neurogenomics welcomes submissions of the following article types: Brief Research Report, Case Report, Clinical Trial, Community Case Study, Correction, Data Report, Editorial, General Commentary, Hypothesis and Theory, Methods, Mini Review, Opinion, Original Research, Perspective, Review, Specialty Grand Challenge, Systematic Review and Technology and Code.
All manuscripts must be submitted directly to the section Neurogenomics, where they are peer-reviewed by the Associate and Review Editors of the specialty section.
Articles published in the section Neurogenomics will benefit from the Frontiers impact and tiering system after online publication. Authors of published original research with the highest impact, as judged democratically by the readers, will be invited by the Chief Editor to write a Frontiers Focused Review - a tier-climbing article. This is referred to as "democratic tiering". The author selection is based on article impact analytics of original research published in all Frontiers specialty journals and sections. Focused Reviews are centered on the original discovery, place it into a broader context, and aim to address the wider community across all of Neuroscience and Genetics.
