STM publisher Elsevier, Netherlands, has announced the launch of open access journal, Interdisciplinary Neurosurgery: Advanced Techniques and Case Management. Petra Klinge, Associate Professor of Neurosurgery, The Warren Alpert Medical School of Brown University, will serve as the Editor-in-Chief of the journal.
Neurosurgery has recently seen a range of advances in imaging techniques and experimental research in the field of neurorestoration and neuroregeneration, offering new treatment options for neurosurgeons, such as stem cell treatment and implanting of biotechnical devices.
Interdisciplinary Neurosurgery will provide a new home for high quality manuscripts, of interest to clinical researchers in the field of neurosurgery and neurology, and clinicians of related disciplines who are involved in the treatment of central and peripheral nervous system diseases and the spine.
The article based publishing model allows for immediate publication of the final version of a paper without waiting for other articles to be compiled into a full issue. This, amongst other Elsevier content innovation initiatives, will ensure that Interdisciplinary Neurosurgery delivers accessible and current content with reduced publication delays.
The first published articles will become available for access online on ScienceDirect in the first quarter of 2014.
