Elsevier, a world-leading provider of scientific, technical and medical information, products and solutions announces the launch of open access journal, Interdisciplinary Neurosurgery: Advanced Techniques and Case Management.
Neurosurgery has recently seen a range of advances in imaging techniques and experimental research in the field of neurorestoration and neuroregeneration, offering new treatment options for neurosurgeons, such as stem cell treatment and implanting of biotechnical devices.
Interdisciplinary Neurosurgery will provide a new home for high quality manuscripts, of interest to clinical researchers in the field of neurosurgery and neurology, and clinicians of related disciplines who are involved in the treatment of central and peripheral nervous system diseases and the spine.
Editor-in-Chief of the journal, Petra Klinge, Associate Professor of Neurosurgery, The Warren Alpert Medical School of Brown University, said of the launch, "Neurosurgery is often tasked to manage the more difficult and rare cases. Interdisciplinary Neurosurgery is dedicated to publishing those complex neurosurgical cases, particularly when other specialties are involved in the diagnosis and management. Neuroimaging, robotics, biotechnics and basic neurosciences are offering new opportunities for the management of neurological diseases at an ever increasing speed. Not only does this broaden the spectrum of neurosurgical indications (e.g. in the field of neurorestoration) but also welcomes an increasingly innovative approach to inter- and transdisciplinary collaboration."
