World Journal of Neurology (WJN, World J Neurol) is a high-quality, online, open-access, single-blind peer-reviewed journal that is published by the Baishideng Publishing Group. Accepting both solicited and unsolicited manuscripts, the WJN mainly publishes high-quality clinical research articles to improve the academic influence of authors, cultivate distinguished neurologists, and promote the development of neurology. The types of articles published in the WJN include Editorial, Opinion Review, Frontier, Review, Minireview, Topic Highlight, Clinical Research, Systematic Review, Meta-analysis, Evidence-based Medicine, Advances in Diagnosis, Advances in Treatment, Field of Vision, Clinical Guidelines, Letter to the Editor, and Case Report.
The primary aim of the WJN is to provide scholars and readers from various fields of neurology with a platform to publish high-quality clinical research articles and communicate their research findings online. In order to ensure the quality, timeliness, fairness, and transparency of manuscript publication, the WJN has implemented a variety of measures as follows:
First, authors must prepare their articles according to the appropriate international publication recommendations, including the STROBE Statement, CONSORT 2010 Statement, PRISMA 2009 Checklist, and CARE Checklist – 2016: Information for writing a case report.
Second, articles published in the WJN must undergo rigorous cross-international peer review, where peer reviewers and authors come from different countries and independent peer reviewers are chosen by the editorial office, not by authors, to ensure the fairness of peer review.
Third, designation of co-first authors or co-corresponding authors is not permitted.
Fourth, the WJN accepts a manuscript based mainly on its novelty, innovativeness, data accuracy, picture reliability, clear language expression, and ethical requirements. Of note, peer reviewers will complete the peer review within 7 days, providing a comprehensive evaluation of the scientific and linguistic quality of the manuscript.
Fifth, BPG adopts a 7-day publishing management policy. This means that each step of the publishing process, including manuscript preview, peer review, manuscript revision by authors, final acceptance, language editing, and production and release, must be completed within 7 days.
