Advanced Neurology is a peer-reviewed and open-access journal that aims to publish and disseminate novel research on basic, clinical, and translational medicine related to neurological diseases. The journal’s mission is to advance our understanding of the diseases related to the nervous system and to provide a platform to showcase the latest findings in fundamental research and clinical research as well as present new ideas that might contribute to the improvement of neurological clinical practice. The target audience of Advanced Neurology includes physicians, epidemiologists, and neuroscientists working in the disciplines of neurology, neurosurgery, neuroimaging, neurointervention, neuropsychology, and so on.
The main focus of Advanced Neurology is to tackle the problems and unravel the questions in neurological disorders, such as neurodegenerative disease, cerebrovascular disease, epilepsy and movement disorder, neuroimmune disease, neurological infection, and muscle disease. According to the journal’s focus, we are particularly interested in papers related to the study of pathological mechanisms, the development of new medicines, clinical research, translational research, and big data analysis. The journal’s planned publication frequency is four issues per year, and a double-blind peer review process will be applied to all relevant submissions. Advanced Neurology will publish original research articles, review articles, case reports, meta-analyses, and perspective articles.
Despite the existence of numerous journals published in the field of neurology, we consider that the need to deliver quick solutions and insights into neurological disorders is currently unmet. In addition, a common platform where physicians and neuroscientists publish research on peripheral topics and research with negative results is lacking. Thus, these factors drive us to launch a new journal to address the inadequacies in the current publishing landscape. Our primary goal is to publish basic research, clinical research, and translational research that focus on the prevention of neurological diseases, clinical diagnosis, and treatment, and address urgent clinical conundrums from different aspects and levels. Thus, as long as the research is original, innovative, and significant for clinical work, we will consider it valuable and significant to the literature of neurology and neuroscience research.
We hope that our readers find the articles published in Advanced Neurology inspiring to their clinical and research work. Furthermore, we sincerely welcome submissions from you, to publish new research, insights, and results in the upcoming issues of Advanced Neurology. Your trust is of great importance to keeping the journal dynamic and bringing value to physicians and researchers in this field.
