Gut-Brain Axis

Editor-in-Chief: Robert Lanza, MD

BioResearch Open Access is seeking high-quality clinical, translational, and basic science research on the gut-brain axis for a special article collection. Exciting new research into the gut-brain axis has revealed a complex communication system that not only ensures the proper maintenance of gastrointestinal homeostasis, but is likely to have multiple effects on motivation, and higher cognitive functions. This special article collection will provide a broad overview of the current state of research in this area.

The Journal will consider research articles, reviews, rapid communications, short reports, technical reports, and hypothesis articles.

Potential topics include:

  • Advances in research on the Gut-Brain Axis
  • Bidirectional signaling between the brain and gut microbiome
  • Neurocrine and endocrine signaling mechanisms
  • Gut microbiome and behavior
  • Stress effects on metabolic activity of gut microbiota
  • Research on psychobiotics
  • Gut microbiome role in human brain diseases
  • Gut microbiome brain imaging studies

Benefits of publishing in the Journal:

  • High visibility, immediate and unrestricted online access to published articles
  • Broad coverage of biomedical research
  • Rigorous and rapid peer review
  • Easy compliance with open access mandates
  • Authors retain copyright
  • Highly indexed--citation tracking and inclusion in PubMed
  • Targeted email marketing
