Aims and scope
Acta Neuropathologica Communications (ANC) focuses on the pathogenesis of neurological disease using experimental or human tissues, molecular, cellular, biological and morphological techniques
Call for Papers: Investigating the Biology of Brain Metastases
This Collection aims to bring together the latest research on brain metastases biology.
Call for Papers: Neuropathology and Neurodegeneration in the Retina
This Collection will highlight basic, translational, and clinical studies that address current knowledge gaps in retinal neurodegenerations.
Why publish with ANC?
- No major revisions: only minor revisions are requested that can be performed (and have to be performed) within 3 weeks
- Fast, thorough peer review: group of editors selected on the basis of their insightful, dedicated and prompt service
- Rapid publication: publication within 2 months of submission
- Inclusion in all major indexing services, such as PubMed, MEDLINE and Web of Science
- Open access: enabling it to be read by a much larger set of readers, increasing its visibility
- Competitive APC: flat article-processing charge, with no page limits, color figure charges or submission fees

From the Editors-in-Chief
"The unique combination of human neuropathology with relevant experimental models is essential for understanding the pathogenesis of neurological diseases. Acta Neuropathologica Communications provides a platform for studies that centrally involve human neuropathology and bring new insight in disease mechanisms of neurological diseases using relevant experimental models. We welcome high quality papers that do not require major revisions, resulting in short turn-around times and fast publication. We hope you enjoy Acta Neuropathologica Communications and are looking forward to receive your submissions."
Jeroen Hoozemans, co-Editor-in-Chief, ANC
"As an original member of the ANC editorial board, it has been a pleasure to witness the growth and maturation of this journal first hand. ANC now occupies a well-defined niche for the rapid publication of high-quality work advancing the broad spectrum of neuropathology and its allied sciences. I look forward to receiving and evaluating your compelling manuscripts in the months and years ahead."
Jason T. Huse, co-Editor-in-Chief, ANC
