Purpose & Concept
The journal is far-reaching. It encompasses molecules with behavioral (eg. cognitive neuroscience) and clinical (eg. molecular neuroscience, biochemistry) aspects through many disciplines and systems (eg. neurophysiological, neuroscience systems). The journal covers all areas of neuroscience with an emphasis on psychiatry and psychology, as long as it describes neural mechanisms underlying the target normal or pathological behavior. Preclinical and clinical studies are considered to be equally acceptable for publication. Articles about computational modeling methods of psychiatric and neurological disorders and treatment outcomes attract our attention.
The journal gives special importance to psychiatric and neurological disorders. However, studies on normal human behavior are also taken into consideration. Work on animals and technical notes should have a clear relevance and applicability to human diseases. The Case Reports containing current neurological treatments or diagnostic methods are generally covered by JNBS.
The following two categories are also available at JNBS:
Briefly, mini-studies of existing research or theories in appropriate areas
Comments that will serve as a short presentation of new theories, hypotheses, perspectives, or criticisms of existing research  
The average time from the delivery to the first decision is less than 30 days. Accepted articles are published online on average in 40 business days prior to printing and the articles are published in print 3-6 months after acceptance.

Implicit Review
Implicit reviews are optional and it is especially desirable to add them to the cover letter during delivery. 
For implicit reviews, the article must contain a separate title page with the names and links of the authors, and they should not be anywhere else in the article.
The footnotes describing the authors should be written on a separate page.
Ensure that there is no clue as to the identity of the authors in any part of the article.
If your article is masked research, make sure that the last version contains a line with the author's name for the string and a full author note.
Types of Articles 
Short Reports, comments, case reports and mini-examinations must not exceed 4,000 words in total length. This limitation includes all of the article except the figures (title page, abstract, text, references, tables, author notes and footnotes, attachments, figure titles). Short reports can also contain a maximum of two figures. For short reports, the length limit is precise and must be applied accordingly.
The total length of Regular Articles should not exceed 6,000 words (except figures).
The reviews are published in the regular reviews of the JNBS. Reviews should not exceed 10,000 words (except figures).
Covering Letter
All cover letters should include:
A statement that the material is original - if the data set clusters were previously published or in other submitted articles, please include the following information:
o Is the current study a new analysis of previously analyzed data? If so, explain the differences in the analytical approach.
o Is some of the data in the current study analyzed for the first time? If so, describe the data (structures) that have not been previously published or edited.
o Are there published or edited articles directing the relevant questions from this data set? If so, provide quotations and define the unique contributions of the article you are writing and the degree to which it overlaps.
Address and e-mail address of the responsible author;
Phone and fax numbers;
Category in which the article is presented;
Declaration that the authors have complied with APA ethical standards in the treatment of participants and that the work has been approved by the relevant Institutional Review Board;
Whether the article is sent to a website;
APA style (Publication Manual, 6th edition);
Disclosure of conflicts of interest related to the work provided;
Request for implicit reviews; a statement assuring that the text is prepared in accordance with these rules.
Authors should also specify the total word length of the article (including all elements of the article except figures) and the number of tables, figures and additional items included.
Preparation of Draft 
Prepare drafts according to American Psychological Association Publication Guide (6th edition).
Review the APA's Submission Checklist before submitting your essay.
Write the entire copy double-spaced (with spaces). Table preparation, figure, reference, metrology and summaries and other format instructions are available in the Manual.
The following is the preparation of additional instructions for equations and tables:
Demonstration of Equations
We strongly recommend MathType (third-party software) or Equation Editor 3.0 (not in Word 2007 and Word 2010, which is included in the pre-2007 version of Word) to create your equations The equation software supported in Word 2007 / Word 2010 is low-resolution and errors can occur while being re-edited.
To do your equations with MathType or Equation Editor 3.0:
Go to the Text section of the Insert tab and select the object.
Select MathType or Equation Editor 3.0 in the popup menu.
If you have a Microsoft Word 2007 or 2010 made by the equation and you have a full version of MathType version 6.5 or later, you can convert it to MathType by clicking on the MathType Equation Insert. Copy the equation from Microsoft Word and paste it into the MathType box. Verify that your equation is correct and press Update. Your equation has now been inserted into your Word file as a MathType Equation.
Use Equation Editor 3.0 or MathType only for formulas or formulas that cannot be made as Word texts using the Times or Symbol font.
Use the Word table function when creating tables. Using spaces or tabs in your table will cause problems and result in an error.
Summary and Keywords 
All drafts should be an English written summary on a separate sheet of maximum 250 words. In summary, please write 5 keywords or a short group of words. For those who are Turkish native speakers, JNBS is the summary and the Turkish language of the key words. This is not necessary for non-native speakers of Turkish and the translation will be free of charge.
Write references in alphabetical order. Each listed reference should be cited in the text (Name, year, type) and each citation should be in the References section.
In-text citations
For two or fewer authors, type the name of all authors (eg. Brown & Tas, 2013). or three or more authors, type the first author's name and add “et al.” (eg. Uzbay et al, 2005).
Use semicolons (;) for multiple references belonging to the same item and use chronological sorting. References from the same author of the same author should be separated using letters (eg. Smith, 2001a; Smith, 2001b).
Use citations of accepted articles as 'at the press', include them in the reference list.
Use only the texts of the authors' initials and surnames as 'unpublished data 'in their unpublished, preliminary and under investigation studies and add to the reference section.
