General Considerations

To present the best peer-reviewed articles in neurophysiology in the most rapid manner, NNN has adopted simplified guidelines for manuscript preparation. Once you have prepared the manuscript accordingly, use the easy online manuscript submission process on our home page www.neurojournal.com. All published articles are indexed by the National Library of Medicine and appear in PubMed. The full text of all articles is always freely available at www.neurojournal.com.

Citations of articles published in the NNN Journal should adhere to the following format (example using Index Medicus reference format): Smith J. Research in neurology. Neurol Neurophysiol Neuroscience 2004;31:1-5. In this example, 2004 is the year and volume number; 31 is the article number and 1-5 are the page numbers. Some Journals may require that you also include the date that you downloaded or viewed the article. If that is required, here is the suggested format: Smith J. Research in neurology. Neurol Neurophysiol Neuroscience 2004;31:1-5 (viewed on June 5, 2004).

The NNN reserves the right to make minor grammatical or formatting changes to all articles accepted for publication, but in most cases the article will be reviewed and published just as it is submitted. Be certain that the content of the article is clear and that it is free of typographic errors. If you question your English proficiency, you may wish to consult a colleague or professional copy editor prior to submission.

For consistency, all NNN articles are published on the Web as PDF (Portable Document Format) documents. This insures uniform viewing across all platforms without sacrificing search capabilities. The manuscript you submit (in Word or RTF format) will be converted, as part of the submission process, to a PDF for the review-and-decision process and the final accepted-and-published version.

Before you submit, you must register at www.neurojournal.com as a participant. At the time of online submission, once you have logged in, you will need

the electronic manuscript file (prepared according to the specifications below)
names (first initial and last name for all authors, with middle initial and e-mail address optional)

For any questions about submission standards, please contact the Editor in Chief, Bruce Fisch MD.
