The journal "Acta Neurochirurgica" publishes papers dealing with clinical neurosurgery - diagnosis and diagnostic techniques, operative surgery and results, postoperative treatment - or with research work in neuroscience where underlying questions or results are of neurosurgical interest.

In addition to the regular journal, "Acta Neurochirurgica" publishes 3-4 supplement volumes per year. These comprise proceedings of international meetings or other material of general neurosurgical interest.
