Clinical Neuropathology: the Official Journal of Euro-CNS

Purpose and History
Clinical Neuropathology is devoted to publishing state-of-the-art studies on the pathological anatomy of the nervous system and skeletal muscle in a clinical context. The Journal was founded in 1983 by Profs. W. Schlote, P. Kleihues, K. Jellinger, and F. Gulotta. In 2005, the publisher of Clinical Neuropathology, Dustri-Verlag, Munich, and Euro-CNS agreed on a comprehensive co-operation following the joint approval by the publisher and the delegates of Euro-CNS.

Clinical Neuropathology appears every two months and publishes reviews and editorials, original papers, short communications and reports on recent advances in the entire field of clinical neuropathology. Papers on experimental neuropathologic subjects are accepted if they bear a close relationship to human diseases. Correspondence (letters to the editors) and current information including book announcements will also be published. Each issue has one or more papers available for free downloading. The Euro-CNS News section is always freely accessible online. You can easily subscribe to the Table of Contents so that you will receive an e-notification as soon as a new issue is available online.

This journal is regularly covered in Current Contents, Science Citation Index, Medline, Index Medicus, EMBASE/Excerpta Media, Elsevier Biobase/Current Awareness in Biological Sciences and SCOPUS.

A subscription consists of a bi-monthly journal (6 issues/year). The subscriber will receive a printed copy of the journal, and will have access to the online version as well.

Below you will find subscription information and special benefits for Euro-CNS Members. We believe that the Journal will provide an invaluable platform for the communication of clinically oriented research in our field and beyond. In 2018, members of the affiliated societies of Euro-CNS have  full free online access to the Journal. In this way we hope to stimulate a productive and stimulating interaction with the contributors and readers of Clinical Neuropathology.
