Frontiers journals are at the top of citation and impact metrics
Neurogenetics – the genetics of brain disorders may serve as a foundation for earlier, molecular diagnosis, fundamental neuroscience and future drug development. This Frontiers section focuses on research that capitalizes on human genetics to solve neurologic problems. Ideally, submissions will have a translational bias and will marry aspects of clinical neurology, neuropathology, neurogenetics, molecular neuroscience, and neuropharmacology. Manuscripts are to include original research, provocative reviews, and perceptive syntheses, that are directive for the field.
Indexed in: PubMed, PubMed Central, Scopus, Google Scholar, DOAJ, CrossRef, EMBASE, Science Citation Index Expanded, CLOCKSS
PMCID: all published articles receive a PMCID
Neurogenetics welcomes submissions of the following article types: Book Review, Case Report, Clinical Study Protocol, Clinical Trial, Correction, Editorial, General Commentary, Hypothesis and Theory, Methods, Mini Review, Opinion, Original Research, Perspective, Review, Specialty Grand Challenge and Systematic Review.
All manuscripts must be submitted directly to the section Neurogenetics, where they are peer-reviewed by the Associate and Review Editors of the specialty section.
Articles published in the section Neurogenetics 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 Neurology.
