Aims & Scope

Journal of Neurotrauma is the flagship, peer-reviewed publication for reporting on the latest advances in both the clinical and laboratory investigation of traumatic brain and spinal cord injury. The Journal focuses on the basic pathobiology of injury to the central nervous system, while considering preclinical and clinical trials targeted at improving both the early management and long-term care and recovery of traumatically injured patients. This is the essential journal publishing cutting-edge basic and translational research in traumatically injured human and animal studies, with emphasis on neurodegenerative disease research linked to CNS trauma.

Journal of Neurotrauma coverage includes:

  • Neuronal injury from a cellular to molecular perspective
  • Neurochemical alterations and behavioral abnormalities
  • Electrophysiological change
  • Stem cell biology and transplantation
  • Neurorehabilitation

Journal of Neurotrauma is under the editorial leadership of Editor-in-Chief John T. Povlishock, PhD, Commonwealth Center for the Study of Brain Injury, Virginia Commonwealth University, Medical College of Virginia Campus; Deputy Editor W. Dalton Dietrich, III, PhD, The Miami Project to Cure Paralysis, University of Miami; and other leading investigators. View the entire editorial board.

Audience: Neuroscientists, neuroimaging specialists, neurologists, neurobiologists, neuropathologists, neurosurgeons, neuropsychologists, neuroradiologists, bioengineers, and rehabilitation specialists, among others.
