Submission Guidelines

Are you interested in having your work published in our journal?

Here are some suggestions for writing up scientific papers for Neurogenesis. If you have any questions or would like to submit original research, reviews, opinions, or other types of articles, please submit them by e-mail to

Style and Approach:

We value conciseness and clarity, with an emphasis on lay terms over jargon, and big picture implications over minute methodical details.
For original research, articles must be divided into the following sections:
  • Abstract
  • Introduction/Background
  • Methodology
  • Results
  • Discussion
  • Conclusion/Implications
  • References
  • Figure Legends

We understand that many techniques in neuroscience today are highly specialized and technical. In order to appeal to a wider audience, we may request that you provide us with an additional 100-200 word sidebar explaining a specific technique or application of your research.


The length of our articles varies, especially because we publish such a variety of content. However, we request that you keep your submission to a maximum of 2,000-2,500 words. You may submit longer articles, but they will be edited down before publishing.

For original articles, approximate lengths tend to be:

  • Abstract: 200 words
  • Introduction/Background: 400-600 words
  • Methodology: 1-2 paragraphs about study design, data acquisition, and data analysis
  • Results: 500-700 words
  • Discussion: 800-1000 words
  • Conclusion/Implications: 200-400 words


For photographs, we request a minimum resolution of 300 pixels per square inch (psi). All diagrams and graphs should be clearly labeled and each should have a caption that follows the following format:

Figure 1. Title phrase. One or two sentences to further explain what is shown.


Please use APA formatting.


Please submit one file with the text of your paper only, and individual files for each figure or table. The text file should be Times New Roman, 12 pt font, double-spaced, and saved as a “.doc” or “.docx.” We will style the contents as needed.


Once we have received your article, we will contact you regarding the editing process. In most cases, we will suggest some revisions and present a reasonable deadline for their completion. We reserve the right to edit all material for brevity, organization, clarity, and grammatical precision. Unless our changes are very minor, we will send you a final edited version for confirmation before we begin the page design.
