The journal mainly deals with the application of neurophysiological, biochemical, pharmacological, molecular biological, anatomical, and behavioral analysis to problems of molecular, cellular, developmental, and systems neuroscience. Special attention will be given to those areas where availability of new techniques has led to a multi-disciplinary approach to the problems of the nervous system.
It will consider submissions that focus on the mediational role of neural processes in linking social phenomena to physiological, neuroendocrine, developmental, neurosurgical methodologies, pathology or the neurological diseases, genetics behind the neurological ailments, advanced techniques in diagnosing these particular neuropathologies, structural abnormalities, functioning of the neurological elements in the body, morphology, immunology, biochemistry with all the neuroimaging (fMRI, MRI, PET, EEG, MEG), neuropsychological patient studies, animal lesion studies, single-cell recording, pharmacological perturbation, and transcranial magnetic stimulation. The mentioned are the major topics of concern but not limited. The Journal specifically aims at keeping the students in this particular field abreast of the current technologies used world-wide and also the professionals to update their knowledge in the latest of techniques used in the field.
Fast Editorial Execution and Review Process (FEE-Review Process):
The Neurosurgery Journal is participating in the Fast Editorial Execution and Review Process (FEE-Review Process) with an additional prepayment of $99 apart from the regular article processing fee. Fast Editorial Execution and Review Process is a special service for the article that enables it to get a faster response in the pre-review stage from the handling editor as well as a review from the reviewer. An author can get a faster response of pre-review maximum in 3 days since submission, and a review process by the reviewer maximum in 5 days, followed by revision/publication in 2 days. If the article gets notified for revision by the handling editor, then it will take another 5 days for external review by the previous reviewer or alternative reviewer.
Acceptance of manuscripts is driven entirely by handling editorial team considerations and independent peer-review, ensuring the highest standards are maintained no matter the route to regular peer-reviewed publication or a fast editorial review process. The handling editor and the article contributor are responsible for adhering to scientific standards. The article FEE-Review process of $99 will not be refunded even if the article is rejected or withdrawn for publication.
The corresponding author or institution/organization is responsible for making the manuscript FEE-Review Process payment. The additional FEE-Review Process payment covers the fast review processing and quick editorial decisions, and regular article publication covers the preparation in various formats for online publication, securing full-text inclusion in a number of permanent archives like HTML, XML, and PDF, and feeding to different indexing agencies.
