Translational Stroke Research: New Neuroscience Journal Debuts At Springer

August 26, 2017

Springer is launching a new quarterly journal Translational Stroke Research, which aims to help translate scientific discoveries from basic stroke research into the development of new strategies for prevention, assessment, treatment and repair after stroke and other forms of neurotrauma. The first issue will appear in March 2010.

Translational Stroke Research will focus on translational research and will be relevant to both basic scientists and physicians, including neuroscientists, vascular biologists, neurologists, neuroimagers and neurosurgeons. The journal will provide an interactive forum for the dissemination of original research articles, review articles, methods papers, letters, comments and research protocols in stroke and stroke-related areas. Its distinguished editorial board, headed by Dr. John H. Zhang of Loma Linda University School of Medicine in California, is made up of leading stroke researchers and physicians from North America, Europe, and Asia.

Ann Avouris, Senior Editor for Neuroscience at Springer, said, "Although basic stroke research is thriving, new and effective therapies for stroke patients have not been developed. We believe it is time to create a new journal to facilitate the translation of basic research discoveries into effective therapies. Translational Stroke Research will cover the fields from molecular biology to stroke clinical trials, but it will especially focus on translational studies."

Translational Stroke Research will be available in print and electronically on springerlink. The journal includes Online First™, a feature where articles are published online before they appear in print, Cross Reference Linking, and Alert services. In addition, all authors, via the Springer Open Choice™ program, have the option of publishing their articles using the open access publishing model.
