On Tuesday 17th June BioMed Central launched Molecular Brain, a new open access, independent journal, that encompasses all aspects of studies on the nervous system at the molecular, cellular, and system level.
Molecular Brain aims to provide a forum for scientists to communicate their findings in this rapidly expanding field, where integrative approaches at the genetic, molecular, cellular and synaptic levels yield key information about the physiological and pathological brain. The Founding Editor, Min Zhou (University of Toronto), is supported by four Editors-in Chief; Kei Cho (University of Bristol), Bong-Kiun Kaang (Seoul National University), Xiao-Jiang Li (Emory University), Lin Mei (Medical College of Georgia) and an expert Editorial Board.
Molecular Brain is a sister journal to Molecular Pain, another of BioMed Central’s independent journals, which has just received an impressive first Impact Factor of 4.13 confirming its status as one of the leading journals in Anesthesiology and Pain Medicine. We look forward to similar success for Molecular Brain in the future.
