How to publish in this journal


The Journal of Stroke (JoS) provides stroke clinicians and researchers with peer-reviewed articles on clinical and basic investigation of cerebral circulation and associated diseases to enhance patient management, education, clinical or experimental research, and professionalism. The jour-nal will consider submissions in areas including, but not limited to, the following: pathophysiology, risk factors, symptomatology, imaging, treatment, and rehabilitation of stroke. We have a particular interest in strokes in Asian populations as they have features distinct from strokes in the other part of the world. Clinical researches on intracranial atherosclerosis, small vessel diseases, hemorrhagic strokes, and relevant basic researches are welcome, as are issues in epidemiology, public education, and clinical practice guidelines in Asian countries.
