Scope & Topics

This Call for papers will highlight research into the structure, function, development, and modeling of the blood-brain barrier in health and pathology, as well as novel approaches to interact with the central nervous system via the blood-brain barrier, and the role of the blood-brain barrier in the gut-brain-microbiome axis. The broad scope of PLOS ONE facilitates publication of the interdisciplinary research necessary to address this complex feature of the nervous system.

Publishing your work on the blood-brain barrier in PLOS ONE is a great opportunity to engage the broader scientific community, reaching multiple disciplines where your investigations may fuel better understanding of pivotal pathophysiology in the central nerves system and potential future therapies for neurological disorders.

— Dr. David Liebeskind, Guest Editor

Everything was very fast from the time I sent the article to the time I got the first review and later on with the two rebuttal letters, plus modifications I sent. The reviewers were quite rigorous and that substantially improved our manuscript and we are definitely grateful for that.”

Interdisciplinarity is crucial. The quality of the final work is the result of the individual disciplines. The greater the ability to cooperate in a research group, the better the final work will be.”
