About the Journal

Aims and Scope

Neuroanatomy and Behaviour (ISSN: 2652-1768) is a platinum open access peer reviewed journal for behavioural neuroscience research. We publish new research and review articles that are methodologically sound and make a useful contribution to the understanding of how neural anatomy, physiology, pharmacology, and biochemistry influence behaviour. We hope that the scientific advances published in the journal will advance our understanding of normal and dysfunctional neural and psychological processes with the potential to contribute to advances in healthcare for mental disorders and neurological diseases.

Neuroanatomy and Behaviour supports evidence-based medicine. We do not publish studies using complementary and alternative medicines, such as homeopathy, acupuncture, or naturopathy.

Neuroanatomy and Behaviour recognises the importance of both animal models and human trials in advancing our understanding of neuroscience and mental health. We welcome studies using animal subjects and human participants subject to their compliance with accepted ethical procedures and principles.

Digital preservation is an essential function of publishers. In the short-term, we use off-site digital server backups combined with a publicly available archive of the journal on Github. To facilitate long-term digital preservation, we encourage all authors to archive their final published PDFs in their institutional repository, actively engage with Australian legal deposit requirements, and plan to join a TRAC-certified digital preservation archive. Issues archived with the National Library of Australia and State Library Victoria can be accessed through Trove.
