Neurology and Clinical Sciences | Author Guidelines
Neurology and Clinical Sciences, an international English language, open-access online and print journal, will consider for publication original articles, short communications, case reports, letters to the editor, editorials and mini-reviews. Emphasis is given to all aspects of the neurological system from basic science to clinical neuroscience. Submissions will be assessed on their scientific validity and merit. Manuscripts are received with the understanding that they are submitted solely to Neurology and Clinical Sciences, and that none of the material contained in the manuscript has been published previously or is under consideration for publication elsewhere, excluding abstracts.
Neurology and Clinical Sciences journal accepts online letters to the editors, brief comments that contributes to the previously published articles or other relevant findings in Neurology field. Neurology and Clinical Sciences journal strongly supports the Open Access initiative. Abstracts and full texts (HTML, PDF and XML format) of all articles published by Neurology and Clinical Sciences journal are freely accessible to everyone immediately after publication. Neurology and Clinical Sciences journal will keep upto date with latest advances in the field and papers published in this will reach the readers directly by email for free of cost.
Neurology and Clinical Sciences journal publishes original research articles of outstanding medical and clinical importance. We will consider manuscripts of any length; we encourage the submission of both substantial full-length bodies of work and shorter manuscripts that report novel findings that might be based on a more limited range of experiments. The writing style should be concise and accessible, avoiding jargon so that the paper is understandable for readers outside a specialty or those whose first language is not English. Editors will make suggestions for how to achieve this, as well as suggestions for cuts or additions that could be made to the article to strengthen the argument. Our aim is to make the editorial process rigorous and consistent, but not intrusive or overbearing. Authors are encouraged to use their own voice and to decide how best to present their ideas, results, and conclusions. Although we encourage submissions from around the globe, we require that manuscripts be submitted in English. Authors who do not use English as a first language may contact us for additional information. As a step towards overcoming language barriers on acceptance of the paper, we encourage authors fluent in other languages to provide copies of their full articles or abstracts in other languages. We will publish these translations as supporting information and list them, together with other supporting information files, at the end of the article text.
