The #1 most cited and #3 largest open-access journal in Neurology
These are exciting times in the clinical neurosciences. New practice models, implemented or currently piloted in a few centers, are transforming rapidly and each change will require new adaptation. Meaningful advances in research and clinical care have been made in neurology and related disciplines. The field is vast, complex, increasingly interdisciplinary, rapidly expanding, and intellectually challenging. Versatility and permanent dialogue between neuroscientists and clinicians encircle all fields of subspecialization and are vital to the practice of quality neurology and the demands for rapid translational information from the basic neurosciences to treatment. In this era of frequently competing demands, no health professional can become too complacent or too relaxed, as it will not take long to fall behind. An appreciation of these facts spark the idea of this project, in order to provide state of the art, readable and innovative updates to the physician scientist across the globe, on what's next in neurology.

Frontiers in Neurology is composed of the following Specialty Sections:
The specialty sections of Frontiers in Neurology welcome submission of the following article types: Book Review, Case Report, Clinical Trial, Correction, Data Report, Editorial, General Commentary, Hypothesis & Theory, Methods, Mini Review, Opinion, Original Research, Perspective, Protocols, Review, Specialty Grand Challenge, Technology Report, Clinical Study Protocol, Classification, CPC, Curriculum, Instruction and and Pedagogy.
When submitting a manuscript to Frontiers in Neurology, authors must submit the material directly to one of the specialty sections. Manuscripts are peer-reviewed by the Associate and Review Editors of the respective specialty section.
Articles published in the specialty sections above will benefit from the Frontiers impact and tiering system after online publication. Authors of published original research with the highest impact, as judged democratically by the readers, will be invited by the Chief Editor to write a Frontiers Focused Review - a tier-climbing article. This is referred to as "democratic tiering". The author selection is based on article impact analytics of original research published in the Frontiers specialty journals and sections. Focused Reviews are centered on the original discovery, place it into a broader context, and aim to address the wider community across all of Neurology.
