Aims and scope

Brain Informatics is an international, peer-reviewed, interdisciplinary open-access journal published under the brand SpringerOpen, which provides a unique platform for researchers and practitioners to disseminate original research on computational and informatics technologies related to brain. This journal addresses the computational, cognitive, physiological, biological, physical, ecological and social perspectives of brain informatics. It also welcomes emerging information technologies and advanced neuro-imaging technologies, such as big data analytics and interactive knowledge discovery related to various large-scale brain studies and their applications. This journal will publish high-quality original research papers, brief reports and critical reviews in all theoretical, technological, clinical and interdisciplinary studies that make up the field of brain informatics and its applications in brain-machine intelligence, brain-inspired intelligent systems, mental health and brain disorders, etc.

The scope of papers includes the following five tracks:
Track 1: Cognitive and Computational Foundations of Brain Science
Track 2: Human Information Processing Systems
Track 3: Brain Big Data Analytics, Curation and Management
Track 4: Informatics Paradigms for Brain and Mental Health Research
Track 5: Brain-Machine Intelligence and Brain-Inspired Computing
