  • Publishes articles on neuroradiological diagnosis and treatment, applicable basic science and the use of devices
  • Presents research articles, invited reviews, technical notes and short reports
  • Offers critical guidance on choosing techniques
  • Official journal of the European Society of Neuroradiology, of the Japanese Neuroradiological Society and of a number of national European Societies
  • 100% of authors who answered a survey reported that they would definitely publish or probably publish in the journal again

Neuroradiology is the official Journal of the European Society of Neuroradiology, the Japanese Neuroradiological Society and more than 20 national Neuroradiology societies. We publish original research articles, invited review papers, technical notes and short reports.

Neuroradiology aims to cover all aspects of adult and pediatric brain, spine and skull base neuroradiology (e.g. Diagnostic, Interventional, Morphological, Advanced Imaging, Head & Neck), with emphasis on clinical research; important advances and findings on neuroanatomy, neurobiology and neurophysiology that affect neuroradiology are also presented.

The Journal publishes papers that offer critical guidance in neuroimaging and includes the application of the latest techniques. Technical and clinical results in the field of Interventional Neuroradiology are also presented.

From time to time, the Journal publishes comprehensive invited review articles, with a focus on continuing education. Exceptional case reports can be considered but only as single short reports according to the Journal guidelines.

    Neuroradiology is a discipline that covers the medical aspects of interpretation of a great variety of imaging techniques in the neurosciences as well as those aspects of treatment that are covered by the term ‘interventional radiology’.

    Consequently, Neuroradiology is a journal in which papers on neuroradiological diagnosis and treatment, the application of basic sciences to both and the use of apparatus are all welcomed. Moreover, normal neuroanatomy and those aspects of neurophysiology that affect radiology in its widest sense are important to its readers.

    The editors seek papers that give critical guidance to the choice between techniques as well as those that describe new advances. CT is now of prime importance. Many older methods are still appropriate. Ultrasound, positron emission tomography and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) have growing significance. 

    A more obviously didactic role is played by invited, comprehensive review articles that are published from time to time. Unsolicited review articles are no longer accepted. Case reports of special interest, because of their rarity or practical instructional content, are also included. Technical notes (maximum article length 1000 words, maximum of three figures, unlimited references) should include a structured abstract of no more than 250 words with the following subsections: Introduction, Methods, Results, Conclusion.

    In the interests of wide international circulation, papers should be written in English and include a short, structured abstract (no more than 250 words) in English. The abstract should be structured in the following manner: Introduction, Methods, Results, and Conclusions.Special features of the journal are the high-quality reproduction of figures and attractively short publication periods. 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.

    Submissions must be accompanied by a signed Conflict of Interest Disclosure form. If there is no conflict of interest, one author must write "None" and sign the form on behalf of all authors before uploading it to the electronic submission site. Alternatively, please list any conflict of interest and ask one author to sign on behalf of all authors before uploading the form to the electronic submission site. Copyright Transfer Statements are no longer required at the submission stage.

    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 abovementioned requirements.
