Elsevier is delighted to announce the launch of a new Open Access journal, eNeurologicalSci (eNS), on behalf of the World Federation of Neurology. eNeurologicalSci is a companion journal to the Journal of Neurological Sciences.

The journal is under the professional leadership of Bruce Ovbiagele, MD, MSc, MAS, FAAN.

eNeurologicalSci rapidly publishes high-quality articles across a broad research spectrum of neuroscience and neurology, with the potential for understanding mechanisms and informing management of diseases of the human nervous system. The journal especially serves as a venue for papers related to the mission of the World Federation of Neurology, and accepts contributions from basic neuroscience all the way through to community studies submitted by researchers from around the world. eNeurologicalSci also welcomes papers of major relevance to neurologic education and accommodates submissions from trainees in neurology (e.g. residents, fellows, post-doctorate scholars and medical students).

Types of manuscripts for consideration include original research papers, short communications, reviews, study protocols, editorials, perspective pieces, clinical pathologic conference summaries, unique neuroimaging photographs, society conference proceedings (full articles or abstracts), expert-consensus clinical practice guidelines, and letters to the editor. Examples of neurology-related fields of interest include neuromuscular diseases, demyelination, atrophies, dementia, neoplasms, infections, epilepsies, disturbances of consciousness, stroke and cerebral circulation, growth and development, plasticity and intermediary metabolism.

Dear Colleagues,

These are exciting times in neurological research. Neurology is now well beyond being just a great specialty with a logical approach to a varied spectrum of interesting disorders. Compelling advances in the neurological sciences are taking place and even greater new discoveries lie ahead. eNS aspires to be at the forefront of exciting research initiatives in neurology and is poised to be a leading forum for the prompt and widespread dissemination of new knowledge as it accrues in this field.eNS

On top of publishing ingenious discoveries, eNS will take advantage of its primarily online milieu by facilitating enhanced use of audiovisual technology and social media tools, thereby enriching the experience of readers, broadening the exposure of articles, and providing opportunities to better engage with our published scientists.

I invite you to submit your best research to eNS so you can share your science in a very speedy and widely visible manner. If accepted for publication, authors are notified of the decision and requested to pay an Article Processing Fee. Following payment of this fee, the article is made universally available to all on and

I look forward to learning with and from all of you.

We are now inviting submissions for the journal. For the full Aims & Scope and to submit your papers online, please visit the journal homepage.
