Aims and Scope
Acta Neuropathologica publishes manuscripts on pathology and mechanisms of neurological disease. We publish papers dealing with structural and molecular pathology of neurological disease using human tissues as well as experimental papers analyzing pathogenesis using in vivo and in vitro models. We are particularly interested in translational papers combining descriptive and experimental approaches.
The journal publishes Original Papers, Review Articles, Case Reports, and Scientific Correspondence (Letters).
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 identiy 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 fulfil the above-mentioned requirements.
