AIMS Neuroscience
is directed toward publicizing the advancements of neuroscience theory. As noted in our Aim and Scope the goal is to provide a forum for the presentation of a wide variety of scientifically sound theories on relevant topics. To achieve this goal, Special Topics are listed for upcoming issues on a broad range of areas of interest to those in the neuroscience field. Since we recognize that there are some recurrent themes expected to arise keen interest for the foreseeable future, we also have twelve Recurring Topics with publication dates distributed throughout the year. To foster creative ideas, we publish commentaries on all published articles. We are particularly proud to offer Registered Reports to neuroscientists prior to conducting studies so as to assist in promoting the best possible research on important theoretical issues.

We are always looking for manuscript Reviewers with expertise in all areas of neuroscience. As an incentive for assisting us, we encourage reviewers to submit commentaries on the papers they reviewed and any other articles published on the topic area. For our interested readers, there is an Email Alert System available to receive notification when new articles are posted in the journal.

Please feel free to contact us if you have suggestions on ways we can better achieve our goal of being the premier theoretical neuroscience journal.
