Best Neuroscience Journals

The ranking of best journals for Neuroscience was published by Research.com, one of the prominent websites for computer science research providing trusted data on scientific contributions since 2014.

The position in the ranking is based on a unique bibliometric score created by Research.com which is computed using the estimated h-index and the number of leading scientists who have endorsed the journal during the last three previous years. Show more

The ranking contains Impact Score values gathered on December 6th, 2021.

The process for ranking journals involves examining more than 3,365 journals which were selected after detailed inspection and rigorous examination of over 52,763 scientific documents published during the last three years by 5,850 leading and well-respected scientists in the area of computer science.

More details on the methodology for computing the score can be found on our Methodology Page.
