Acta Neurobiologiae Experimentalis is a continuation of Acta Biologiae Experimentalis, a quarterly founded in 1928 as the main Polish journal publishing original articles in the broad area of experimental biology. In 1970 the name was changed for the present and the scope was redirected towards behavior, neuroanatomy, neurophysiology and neuropsychology. The first Editor of the changed title was Professor Jerzy Konorski. Acta Neurobiologiae Experimentalis was always edited in the Nencki Institute and had an international Board of Editors. PWN (state-owned Polish Scientific Publishers) acted as the journal publisher till 1989. In 1990 Nencki Institute became its independent publisher, and the Polish Neuroscience Society became its co-publisher in 2002.
Today Acta Neurobiologiae Experimentalis is a fully peer-reviewed quarterly with an international Board of Editors. Its scope covers broad aspects of neurobiology and neuropathology, including genetics, biochemistry, molecular and cellular neurobiology of the nervous system, electrophysiology and fMRI, functional and comparative neuroanatomy, development and evolution of the nervous system, behavior, brain modeling and also its aging and pathology. ANE publishes original research reports, theoretical papers, reviews, short communications, descriptions of new methods, book reviews and letters to the editor. Chronicle of the Polish Neuroscience Society is printed on separate pages in the issues of ANE. The average time from receiving a manuscript to print is 6 months. Dates of submission and acceptance are specified at the end of each manuscript. Last issue of each year contains the list of contents of the volume, index of authors and the list of reviewers.
Acta Neurobiologiae Experimentalis has an Impact Factor and is indexed by Current Contents/Life Sciences, Index Medicus, Biological Abstracts, Science Citation Index, EMBASE/Excerpta Medica, Cambridge Scientific Abstracts USA, Medline and Polska Bibliografia Lekarska GBL. Circulation of ANE varies from 300 (normal issues) to 950 (conference issues). Libraries and individual subjects from over 20 countries subscribe to ANE. In the near future ANE will open its page for the electronic submission and processing of manuscripts.
