Neuroscience Bulletin (NB), the official journal of the Chinese Neuroscience Society, is published bimonthly by Shanghai Institutes for Biological Sciences (SIBS), Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS) and Springer. NB aims to publish research advances in the field of neuroscience and promote exchange of scientific ideas within the community. The journal publishes original papers of various topics on neuroscience and focuses on potential disease implications on the nervous system. NB welcomes research contributions on molecular, cellular, or developmental neuroscience using multidisciplinary approaches and functional strategies. We feature full-length original articles, reviews, methods, reports, letters to the editor and research highlights. As the official journal of the Chinese Neuroscience Society, which currently has more than 6000 members in China, NB is devoted to facilitating communications between Chinese neuroscientists and their international colleagues. The journal is recognized as the most influential publication in neuroscience research in China.
Beginning with the first issue of 2009, Neuroscience Bulletin has been included in the Science Citation Index Expanded (SCI-E, available as the Web of Science), Neuroscience Citation Index, Biological Abstracts, and Biosis Previews databases. The journal is also indexed/abstracted in various citation resources, including MEDLINE/PubMed, Index Medicus (IM), Chemical Abstracts (CA), Excerpta Medica (EM), SCOPUS, IndexCopernicus, Chinese Science Citation Database (CSCD), Chinese National Knowledge Infrastructure (CNKI) and Wanfang database. It is the source journal of Chinese scientific and technological paper citation and Chinese academic journal general value database.
In October, 2011, the editorial board was reorganized by Editor-in-Chief Professor Shumin Duan. The new editorial board consists of 97 members, among whom about half are distinguished neuroscientists from abroad, including six members of the American National Academy of Sciences and six Editors-in-Chief of leading neuroscience journals, ensuring that the journal maintains high scientific standards and has a broad international coverage. Besides, a native English-speaking neuroscientist, Prof. Iain C. Bruce, has been invited to serve as a full-time Executive Associate Editor.
Neuroscience Bulletin has cooperated with Springer Science+Business Media for publishing on Springerlink since 2008, including hard copy publication and overseas distribution and online publication on both Springerlink (http://link.springer.com/journal/12264) and the journal webpage (www.neurosci.cn).
