International Journal of Neural Systems


SCIE, IF: 5.504 (JCR 2012), Tier 1 Journal


The International Journal of Neural Systems is a bimonthly peer-reviewed journal which covers information processing in natural and artificial neural systems. It publishes original contributions on all aspects of this broad subject which involves physics, biology, psychology, computer science and engineering. Contributions include research papers, reviews, short communications and Letters to the Editor. The journal presents a fresh, undogmatic attitude towards this multi-disciplinary field, aiming to be a forum for novel ideas and improved understanding of collective and cooperative phenomena in systems with computational capabilities.


No papers selected! Since innovative papers in the area of neural systems in the proceedings of the conference are not found at the level to pass through the journal’s rigorous review process.
