The “Journal of the History of the Neurosciences” is the official journal of the International Society for the History of the Neurosciences (ISHN) and the History Committee of the World Federation of Neurology (WFN). It is a flagship journal in the area of the history of neuroscience, psychiatry, and public mental health, with a 2014 Impact Factor of 0,537. The Institute for Scientific Information Journal Citation Report® ranks it 21st out of 56 journals in the history and philosophy of science category.
The “Journal of the History of the Neurosciences” is the leading communication platform dealing with the historical roots of the basic and applied neurosciences. Its domains cover historical perspectives and developments, including biographical studies, disorders, institutions, documents, and instrumentation in neurology, neurosurgery, neuropsychiatry, neuroanatomy, neurophysiology, neurochemistry, neuropsychology, and the behavioral neurosciences. The history of ideas, changes in society and medicine, and the connections with other disciplines (e. g., the arts, philosophy, psychology) are also reflected. In addition to original, full-length papers, the journal publishes informative short communications, letters to the editors, book reviews, and contributions to its NeuroWords and Neurognostics columns. All manuscripts are subject to initial editorial appraisal, and, if found suitable for further consideration, full- and short-length papers are subjected to rigorous peer review by anonymous academic referees.
