International Travel Awards to attend the 17th Annual Meeting of Chinese Neurosurgical Society

We cordially invite you to submit original research and review articles for publication in Chinese Neurosurgical Journal (CNJ). CNJ, the official journal of the Chinese Neurosurgical Society, was founded in 2015 by the Chinese Medical Association. The journal is devoted to the publication of original research and review related to neurosurgery, neurology, and neuroscience, including but not limited to clinical and basic studies in CNS tumors, cerebral vascular disease, traumatic brain injury, spinal cord injury, movement-related disorders, epilepsy, pain, neurophysiology, stem cell therapy, et al. The journal has been indexed by CSCD/Chinese Science Citation Database. CNJ is an international open access journal published by BioMed Central, part of Springer Nature. All articles published in the journal are made freely and permanently accessible online immediately upon publication. CNJ desires publishing high quality articles and ensures authors with:

  • Rapid review process
  • Providing timely update of article status
  • International quality review processing
  • Increased visibility of the research work

Upon acceptance for publication, the senior (or first) author of the accepted article will be invited to present their study at the 17th Annual Meeting of Chinese Neurosurgical Society in Taiyuan, Shanxi on September 13-15, 2018 . The travel expenses (international economy flight) and accommodation associated with the meeting will be covered by the Chinese Neurosurgical Society. Please contact our guest editor Dr. Shaohua Yang if you have any question about this.

The deadline for submissions is June 15, 2018. To submit your manuscript, please use our online submission system. The publication costs are currently covered by the Chinese Neurosurgical Society, so authors do not need to pay an article-processing charge. 

Looking forward to your submission and seeing you in China.
