Scope of the journal We intend to encourage and assist neurosurgeons in under-developed countries especially those from Asia to publish their experience after peer-reviewing and receiving constructive feedback from our reviewers. Meanwhile, in each issue of the journal there are publications from developed (American and European) countries in the best interest of our readers. With this dual policy, we aim to bring the work of Asian neurosurgeons to the international attention while keeping an acceptable level of quality.
The journal publishes on different topics of neurosurgery including but not limited to neuro-oncology, neuro-pathology, surgical neuro-anatomy, neurovascular surgery, skull base surgery, functional neurosurgery, neuro-critical care, spinal cord and peripheral nerve diseases, neuro-traumatology, neuro-interventional radiology, neuro radiotherapy, pediatric neurosurgery, and epilepsy surgery. We publish various formats of articles such as original paper, case report, review, and letter to the editor to expose our readers to a great wealth of neurosurgical sciences. Original investigations with clinical interest and implications are given preference.
