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 neurosurgery in the fields of pediatric development and growth, neurooncology, neurophysiology, epilepsy and trauma.

Each issue contains authoritative review articles, original articles, technical notes commentaries on current and previously published papers, book reviews, and letters to the Editor. Original manuscripts and Brief Communications are given priority for publication. Case reports are accepted, although preference is for those that might generate discussion or provide an update on rare subjects.

New article submissions and suggestions regarding ways to improve Child's Nervous System are both solicited and welcome.

Authors are also 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.
