Journal of Neurosurgery Publishing Group
Our peer-reviewed, scholarly journals primarily publish original works in neurosurgery but also include studies in clinical neurophysiology, organic neurology, neuro-ophthalmology, radiology, pathology and molecular biology.
Founded in 1944, the Journal of Neurosurgery (JNS) is recognized by neurosurgeons and related clinicians and scientists worldwide for its authoritative and cutting-edge clinical articles, laboratory research papers, case reports, literature reviews, technical notes, neurosurgery-related historical pieces and more. Each successive editor-in-chief — from Louise Eisenhardt to the current editor, James T. Rutka, MD, PhD, FAANS — has played a key role in shaping a publication that stands at the forefront of a constantly advancing specialty.
JNS is cited more often than any other journal dedicated to the field of neurosurgery.
Free to the public since 1996, Neurosurgical Focus covers a different topic in depth each month, providing the reader with a state-of-the-art “textbook chapter” in the field of neurosurgery.
