The official journal of the International Society for Pediatric Neurosurgery (ISPN) was founded in 1972 as Child's Brain. As of 1 January 1985, the Society changed publishers. The new official journal, Child's Nervous System has been expanded to encompass all aspects of the pediatric neurosciences: development and growth, degenerative disorders, hereditary diseases, neurology, neurosurgery, neurooncology, neurophysiology, and trauma. Original manuscripts are given priority for publication; the same applies to brief communications. Individual case reports are welcome but, if accepted for publication, the "lag-time" before appearance in print may well exceed 7 months from the time the final manuscript is received by the appropriate geographic editor until publication. However, faster publication is possible for individual case reports that might generate discussion (Case for discussion) or might provide an update on the status quo for a rare subject (Case-based update). A given issue may contain a special review article by an authority in the field, assigned and submitted critiques of current and previously published papers, book reviews, and letters to the Editor. Suggestions regarding ways to improve Child's Nervous System are both solicited and welcome.

Authors are encouraged to submit electronic multimedia files (animations, movies, audio, etc.) and other supplementary files to be published online along with their article. This feature can add dimension to the author's article, as certain information cannot be printed or is more convenient in electronic form.

Manuscripts submitted for publication must contain a statement to the effect that all human studies have been reviewed by the appropriate ethics committee and have therefore been performed in accordance with the ethical standards laid down in an appropriate version of the 1964 Declaration of Helsinki. It should also be stated clearly in the text that all persons gave their informed consent prior to their inclusion in the study. Details that might disclose the identity of the subjects under study should be omitted. Reports of animal experiments must state that the "Principles of laboratory animal care" (NIH publication No.  86-23, revised 1985) were followed, as well as specific national laws (e.g. the current version of the German Law on the Protection of Animals) where applicable. The editors reserve the right to reject manuscripts that do not comply with the above-mentioned requirements. The author will be held responsible for false statements or for failure to fulfill the above-mentioned requirements.

    Aims, Scope and Format of Papers

    The official journal of the International Society for Pediatric Neurosurgery (ISPN) was founded in 1972 as Child's Brain. Since January 1985, the journal has been published by Springer. The new official journal, Child's Nervous System (CNS), although primarily devoted to pediatric neurosurgery, has been expanded to encompass all aspects of the pediatric neurosciences: development and growth, degenerative disorders, hereditary diseases, neurology, neuro-oncology, neurophysiology and trauma. The format of the papers published in CNS vary according to the specific goals of the authors. Original Papers report the results of laboratory or clinical studies. Technical Notes introduce new surgical modalities or variants of existing techniques. Case Reports describe unusual or rare clinical experiences. Brief Communications offer authors the opportunity to publish focused papers aimed at illustrating specific, significant, personal experiences or at anticipating important preliminary results of ongoing research. Case-Based Update papers aim to review the current management of a specific nosographic entity on the basis of a sample clinical case. On the other hand, Case for Discussion papers deal with cases that pose problems in terms of physiopathogenetic interpretation or treatment options. These papers will be discussed and commented on by experts selected by the journal. Review papers offer exhaustive information on a given subject. The Editor will invite experts in the various fields of neuroscience to publish Invited Papers.

    Original manuscripts are given priority for publication; the same applies to Brief Communications. Individual case reports are welcome but, if accepted for publication, the "lag-time" before appearance in print may well exceed 7 months from the time the final manuscript is received by the appropriate geographic editor until the time it is published. However, faster publication is possible for individual case reports that may generate discussion (Case for Discussion papers) or that provide an update on the status quo of a rare subject (Case-Based Update papers). A given issue may contain assigned and submitted critiques of current and previously published papers, book reviews, and letters to the editor. Suggestions regarding ways to improve Child's Nervous System are both solicited and welcome.
