The Journal of the Neurological Sciences (JNS) is the official Journal of the World Federation of Neurology.

The JNS provides a medium for the prompt publication of original articles in neurology and neuroscience from around the world.  JNS places special emphasis on articles that:

  1. provide guidance to clinicians around the world (Best Practices, Global Neurology);
  2. report cutting-edge science related to neurology (Basic and Translational Sciences);
  3. educate readers about relevant and practical clinical outcomes in neurology (Outcomes Research); and
  4. summarise or editorialise the current state of the literature (Reviews, Commentaries, and Editorials).

JNS accepts most types of manuscripts for consideration including original research papers, short communications, reviews, book reviews, letters to the Editor, opinions and editorials.  Topics considered will be from neurology-related fields that are of interest to practicing physicians around the world.  Examples include neuromuscular diseases, demyelination, atrophies, dementia, neoplasms, infections, epilepsies, disturbances of consciousness, stroke and cerebral circulation, growth and development, plasticity and intermediary metabolism.

The fields covered may include:

  • neuroanatomy
  • neurochemistry
  • neuroendocrinology
