Journal of Neurosurgery

At the 12th Annual Meeting of the Harvey Cushing Society, held in New York City in 1943, the Journal of Neurosurgery was formed.

The first issue of the first volume was published several months thereafter in January 1944 (but mailed in March), three months after John F. Fulton letter of September 27, 1943, to Charles C. Thomas, requesting that he publish the JNS. The editorial board chair, Gilbert Horrax, introduced the JNS and its purpose to its readers with Louise Eisenhardt as its managing editor (1944–1965).

The Journal of Neurosurgery Publishing Group (JNSPG) is the scholarly journals publication arm of the American Association of Neurological Surgeons.

Since 1944, the Journal of Neurosurgery has been recognized worldwide for its authoritative articles on clinical and laboratory research, and innovative surgical techniques and instruments, as well as its rigorous focus on the highest-quality presentation of scientific and medical advances.

The Journal of Neurosurgery is the most highly cited journal in neurosurgery, according to Thomson Reuters' Journal Citation Reports® (JCR).
