Journal of Neurochemistry encourages the use of ORCID, a non-profit, community-based effort to uniquely identify authors and link articles and other research activities to specific individuals. Authors have the opportunity to add their ORCID identifier to their user profiles on or upon submission of an article. Once you provide your ORCID identifier, it will be tied to your profile and automatically available for future submissions. Further information can be found on

Why publish in Journal of Neurochemistry?

Quality Peer Review

Qualified reviewers and constructive comments are the keys to a great review. At the Journal of Neurochemistry, our reviewers are among the top researchers in their fields, and we pride ourselves on providing detailed and workable comments and criticism. We cut down on revision times by giving precise feedback at the start, so that you and your colleagues know exactly how to edit your work for publication. Our goal is to work with you to make each paper a solid and valuable contribution to the field.

Fast Decision and Publication Times

Faster decision and publication times mean that your research has an impact quickly—it is read and cited sooner! Journal of Neurochemistry achieves an average 27 days to first decision and papers are posted online within 2 days of acceptance.

Expanded Access for Your Article

Journal of Neurochemistry offers an Open Access option and is compliant with public access policies from NIH, RCUK and other funders. We offer APC discounts for members of the Society for Neurochemistry. All review articles are free from online publication and Non Open Access content is opened up 12 months after publication. The Journal of Neurochemistry supports access to researchers in developing countries through the Research 4 Life initiative. All articles are enhanced HTML, which includes figure and reference viewers, and links to supporting information. PDF versions include reference links to supporting information in an online-friendly format. PDFs are enhanced with ReadCube, which makes all text searchable and annotatable and provides simple click-through to author and reference information.

Simplified and Easy Submission Process

We make it easy for you to submit papers through our streamlined online process. Once your paper is submitted, you can keep track of its process through our detailed production tracking service on Author Services. Our Author Centre helps you access the editing and translation service and prom
