Now accepting Micro report submissions
We are pleased to announced that Molecular Brain is now open for Micro report submissions
Micro reports are suitable for presenting small amounts of data or research that otherwise remain largely unpublished, including important negative results, reproduced results , or exciting findings that you wish to place rapidly into the public domain. Read the first published Micro Report here

No major experimental revisions requested. We will not request major additional experiments during the peer-review process, as we believe that high-quality data should be published promptly without unnecessary delay.
Aims and scope
Molecular Brain is an open access, peer-reviewed journal that considers manuscripts on all aspects of studies on the nervous system at the molecular, cellular, and systems level providing a forum for scientists to communicate their findings.
Molecular brain research is a rapidly expanding research field in which integrative approaches at the genetic, molecular, cellular and synaptic levels yield key information about the physiological and pathological brain. These studies involve the use of a wide range of modern techniques in molecular biology, genomics, proteomics, imaging and electrophysiology.
Molecular Brain is affiliated with the Association for the Study of Neurons and Disease (AND).
