Topics of interest include but are 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 and et al.

CNJ desires publishing high quality content and ensures authors with rapid review process, timely update of article status, international quality review processing and increased visibility of the research work. All articles published in the journal are made freely and permanently accessible online immediately upon publication. The journal has already been indexed by DOAJ and Chinese Science Citation Database (CSCD).

The deadline for submissions is August 31, 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.
