JNNP's ambition is to publish the most ground-breaking and cutting-edge research from around the world. Encompassing the entire genre of neurological sciences, our focus is on the common disorders (stroke, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson's disease, epilepsy, peripheral neuropathy, subarachnoid haemorrhage and neuropsychiatry), but with a keen interest in the Gordian knots that present themselves in the field, such as ALS. With early online publication, regular podcasts and an immense archive collection (with the longest half-life of any journal in clinical neuroscience), JNNP is a trail-blazer and not a follower. Subscribers to JNNP also have access to Practical Neurology and the Journal of NeuroInterventional Surgery.
