The first issue of World Journal of Neurology, a bimonthly peer-reviewed, online, open-access journal will be published on December 28, 2011. The preparatory work for this journal was initiated on December 5, 2010. The WJN Editorial Board has now been established and consists of 100 members who are distinguished, world-renowned experts in neurology and related specialties (psychiatry, geriatric medicine, and internal medicine) from 30 countries. Our purpose in launching WJN is to publish peer-reviewed, high-quality articles via an open-access online publishing model. In this context, a multidisciplinary journal such as WJN may serve as a unique and useful platform for updated ”review”, “mini-review” and ”experimental” articles in neurological and psychiatric age-related research that would eventually help promote healthy lives in both adult and older individuals.
