Neuroglia (ISSN 2571-6980) is an open access journal which provides an advanced forum for studies of Neuroglia. It publishes reviews, regular research papers, short communications, conference reports and commentaries. Our aim is to encourage scientists to publish their experimental and theoretical results in as much detail as possible. There is no restriction on the length of the papers. The full experimental details must be provided so that the results can be reproduced. We also encourage the publication of timely reviews and commentaries on topics of interest to the cell neuroglial community and feature highlights from the recent developments in the 'News and Views' section.
Electronic files or software regarding the full details of the calculation and experimental procedure, if unable to be published in a normal way, can be deposited as supplementary material.
Scope and Subject Areas
Neuroglia is a multidisciplinary open-access journal that aims to relate how glial cells assume every conceivable function aimed at maintaining nervous system function.
Neuroglia welcomes submissions on morphology, function and pathology in the central, peripheral, and enteric nervous systems, throughout the life-course, in invertebrates and vertebrates, in cell culture, in vivo, or using slices, and involving genetically amenable species, such as mice, Drosophila and zebrafish. Neuroglia publishes on all aspects of glial functions, such as structure, homeostasis, and metabolism, and biophysical and biochemical aspects of ionic channel and receptor function and intra- and inter-cellular signalling are welcome.
Neuroglia aims at establishing a platform for glial neuropathology and glial role in all neurological diseases in animal models and humans.

Neuroglia is a member of the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE). MDPI takes the responsibility to enforce a rigorous peer-review together with strict ethical policies and standards to ensure to add high quality scientific works to the field of scholarly publication. Unfortunately, cases of plagiarism, data falsification, inappropriate authorship credit, and the like, do arise. MDPI takes such publishing ethics issues very seriously and our editors are trained to proceed in such cases with a zero tolerance policy. To verify the originality of content submitted to our journals, we use iThenticate to check submissions against previous publications. MDPI works with Publons to provide reviewers with credit for their work.
