Call for Papers: JMIR Neurotechnology

The journal JMIR Neurotechnology invites researchers, clinicians, caregivers, and technologists to submit manuscripts that explore novel diagnostic and treatment tools for neurological disorders, particularly those leveraging the potential of neurotechnology.

JMIR Neurotechnology aims to bridge the gap between clinical neuroscience and information technology by providing a platform for applied human research in the field of neurology.

Our scope includes but is not limited to:

  • Neuroradiology: Exploring the latest developments in neuroradiology and its integration with neurotechnology for enhanced diagnostic accuracy

  • Advancements in neurosurgery: Focusing on the application of neurotechnology in the field of neurosurgery, including innovative surgical tools and techniques for neurological disorders.

  • Innovative diagnostic tools and techniques: Highlighting novel diagnostic tools and techniques powered by neurotechnology

  • Cutting-edge neurotechnology for therapeutics: Showcasing the application of advanced neurotechnological interventions and treatments 

  • Data sharing and open science in neurotechnology: Emphasizing the importance of sharing data and adopting open science principles in research to foster collaboration and reproducibility

  • Code transparency and reproducibility: Encouraging the submission of research articles that share well-documented code and methodologies

  • Neurorehabilitation: Exploring the role of neurotechnology in neurorehabilitation, including innovative approaches and devices that aid in patient recovery and functional improvement

  • Cognitive enhancement: Investigating the potential of technology in enhancing cognitive functions 

  • Challenges and ethical considerations: Addressing the ethical implications and challenges surrounding the responsible use and integration of neurotechnology in health care and research

  • Neuroimaging and brain-machine interfaces: Presenting research on neuroimaging techniques and brain-machine interfaces that contribute to a deeper understanding of neural processes and facilitate brain-computer interactions

  • Neurotechnology and artificial Iintelligence (AI): Exploring how AI-powered tools can optimize diagnosis, treatment, and patient care in neurological disorders

Additional Guidelines

"NeuroTech” Dialogue Box

To ensure that your work is accessible to a wider audience, we request that authors of clinically focused articles include a section that clearly articulates the technical implications of their findings in plain language. Similarly, authors of technical work should provide relevant text to articulate the clinical implications of their work.

We will not accept articles that are solely written by ChatGPT. Please refer to our emerging editorial policy regarding the use of ChatGPT in article ideation or manuscript preparation and specifically on how to disclose the use of generative tools in the manuscript. If original ChatGPT-generated text is used, it should be presented as a quote, textbox, or figure. In particular, we ask that authors maintain a copy of the complete original ChatGPT transcripts used on file and submit them as Multimedia Appendices (or supplementary material).

To submit an article to JMIR Neurotechnology, please visit the submission page. Consult our Instructions for Authors for more information on how to submit a manuscript.

All articles will be shared and published rapidly through the following mechanisms:

  • All peer-reviewed articles will be immediately and permanently made open access. This is the standard for all titles within the JMIR Publications portfolio

  • Articles can be made immediately available in JMIR Preprints (with a DOI) after submission if authors select the preprint option at submission to enable this service.

Submissions not reviewed or accepted for publication in JMIR Neurotechnology may be offered cascading peer review or transfer to other JMIR Publications journals, according to standard JMIR Publications policies. For example, highly technical papers may be transferred or submitted to JMIR Biomedical Engineering. Early-stage formative work that informs the design of future interventions or research may better fit the scope for JMIR Formative Research. Authors are encouraged to submit study protocols or grant proposals to JMIR Research Protocols before data acquisition to preregister the study (Registered Reports; subsequent acceptance in one of the JMIR Publications journals is then guaranteed).
