Brain Research Section Decoder

Brain Research spun off a number of "child" journals and for the first several years, there was a problem with duplicate and out-of-sequence numbering.

  • PubMed uses the "Brain Research" volume number for the child journals through 1988 as if they were part of the main journal. However, the publisher has all the children journals on their own pages, so the links to full text often do not work. But we do have the content! You just need to go to the child journal pages to get it.
  • BIOSIS and Web of Science use the "child" numbering, which leads to the correct place at the publisher's site.
  • In 1987, the duplicate numbering stopped, but the volumes continued to jump around and leave "gaps" in the sequence for the main Brain Research journal.
  • From 1989 on, the main Brain Research journal is numbered sequentially and the "child" journals continue as separate titles.
