BRAIN. Broad Research in Artificial Intelligence and Neuroscience

About the BRAINitiative

The aim of this journal is to create links between researchers from apparently different scientific fields, such as Computer Science and Neurology. In fact, there are a lot of topics such as Artificial Intelligence, Cognitive Sciences and Neurosciences that can intersect in the study of the brain and its intelligent functions.

Our journal contains (in section BRAINovations and BRAINStorming) peer review articles. These articles should be original unpublished articles of the authors. The peer review process is a blind one. The reviewers are well recognized scientists who are part of our scientific board, and independent reviewers.

In 2015 Thomson-Reuters included BRAIN in its new Emerging Sources Citation Index (part of Web of Science):

Some innovative young researchers from around the world, had the idea to edit and publish the BRAIN journal in order to make an agora of interdisciplinary study of the brain. Young scientists and seniors, from artificial intelligence, cognitive sciences and neurology fields are expected to publish their original works in our journal. Also, we accept for publication studies in related fields.

Call for papers

We are seeking papers for our next issue of the BRAIN journal, from academicians, professors, researchers, doctors,  and clinicians, linguists, psychoterapists, PhD students ... anyone connected to the topics of our journal.

We welcome contributions from all over the world. We plan to put out the next issue (Volume 8, Issue #2) of The BRAIN in July 2017. You are invited to write on any topic of our journal. The deadline for sending articles is the 1st of June, 2017. Send your articles to (preferred) or sign in to use the online system for submitting papers (
