About the Journal
Neuroscience of Consciousness is an open access journal which publishes papers on the biological basis of consciousness, with an emphasis on empirical neuroscience studies in healthy populations and clinical settings. The journal also publishes empirically and neuroscientifically relevant psychological, methodological, theoretical, and philosophical papers. As well as the primary phenomenon of consciousness itself, relevant topics include interactions between conscious and unconscious processes; selfhood; metacognition and higher-order consciousness; intention, volition, and agency; individual differences in consciousness; altered states of consciousness; disorders of consciousness in psychiatry and neurology; and consciousness in infants and non-human animals.
The journal publishes research articles, review articles, brief communications, opinions, and ‘spotlight’ commentaries. See instructions to authors for more information on article types. Neuroscience of Consciousness is partnered with the Association for the Scientific Study of Consciousness (ASSC).
