Founded in 2009 and launched in the fall of 2011, BrainImmune is the only professional website that delivers up to date online information into the broad interdisciplinary area of neuroendocrine immunology and stress-immune interactions, and their impact on health and disease.
BrainImmune is committed to serving the interests of the academic community through the timely dissemination of knowledge and information. We bring together concepts and ideas scattered throughout hundreds of scientific journals and derived from thousands of articles that impinge in some way on integrative neuroendocrine immunology and immunophysiology, see more info at our ‘About’ page.
Our mission is to develop the highest quality of knowledge-based product and a free and independent online resource for the medical circles – academic, scientific/research, professional and student communities worldwide.
BrainImmune’s aim is to narrow the information and conceptual gap at the interface of neurosciences and immunology. Hence, our goal is to advance a new field in medical science that has great potential and significance.

Exposure on the Web:
a) Hardcopy textbooks have usually limited edition. In contrast, texts on the Internet have at least ten times as many readers as hardcopy books only, and Internet Websites are more advanced and offer more frequent updates.
b) The Internet opens up unlimited possibilities of increasing the exposure of authors’ ideas and concepts directly online – it offers an opportunity to diversify and broaden the authors’ audience, beyond the relatively limited perimeter of the hardcopy journals or their online versions.
c) A free-accessible online article offers a unique educational tool for students and trainees worldwide, or a valuable concise opinion for an expert who is not familiar with author’s area of expertise.
WHAT DO WE publish?
BrainImmune publishes short but comprehensive online articles written by experts in the field whose research has had a major influence on the development of the topic reviewed (see more at our ‘Authors Info’ page).
BrainImmune is in full compliance with the latest open access mandates. Copyright of the articles are retained by the authors. Articles are licensed under the Creative Commons Attribution License. Thus, authors’ articles are freely available online, freely redistributed and reused, without restriction, as long as the original work is correctly cited.
Contributors should hold an MD, PhD, DO, DC, DVM or PharmD. You should have a demonstrated record of publishing research in high quality, internationally recognised journals and magazines, as evidenced by your PubMed and Google Scholar publications and citations profile. Clinicians without research experience may have publishing experience, including book/book chapters writing or editing.
In contrast to some ‘modern’ Open Access journals or magazines, charging submission fees of 1-2 or more thousand dollars or Euros, from our beginning, we haven’t put-up a paywall of subscriptions and/or submission fees. In the rapidly growing online publishing world, however, funds are limited, thus, we accept donations, see our benefactors at Friends of BrainImmune page.
