Journal of Neurotrauma is the must-read key source of information on the latest cutting-edge, basic, and translational research on the neurobiology of brain and spinal cord injury, as well as on related areas of neurodegenerative disease research linked to CNS trauma.”

Journal of Neurotrauma is the premier peer-reviewed journal specializing in the biology of head and spinal cord trauma. It is an essential journal resource for bench scientists working in these fields, and it is also an important resource for neurological and neurosurgical clinicians.”

“To study neurotrauma is to study a vast and diverse array of cell death and injury pathways—all at the same time. Journal of Neurotrauma is the flagship publication that presents discoveries in this field in a timely and professional manner. It is the journal to turn to for the most recent findings in neurotrauma and has served this community in an excellent manner since its inception.”

“The Journal of Neurotrauma is the leading journal in the world concerning CNS traumatic injury. For those interested in brain and spinal cord injury, everything from basic molecular, cellular, and genetic mechanisms of injury to clinically-oriented studies, this is the Journal to read. My own area of interest is traumatic brain injury and I always find interesting and important manuscripts published in the Journal of Neurotrauma.”

          University of Colorado

Journal of Neurotrauma is a well-respected journal, representing the Neurotrauma Society, and a voice for this field. Some extremely important articles on CNS injury and new approaches for CNS repair have appeared in the Journal. …the Journal continues to be an important publication that is read by basic scientists, clinicians, and clinical scientists dedicated to the development of new therapeutics for neurological disease.”
          Dennis A. Steindler, PhD

“As a member of the neurotrauma research community, I see the Journal of Neurotrauma as one of the few publications where I know that practically every paper will contain something of scientific interest to me. I also know that when I publish in my papers there, I can be assured of an informed multidisciplinary readership that ranges from fundamental biologists, through translational scientists and includes clinical researchers. The Journal provides an important home for neurotrauma research.”
