Neurology Journal Club submissions are structured evaluations of recent Neurology research articles. The aim is to enhance the training of residents and fellows by providing a critical appraisal of medical literature. Residents or fellows interested in submitting a Neurology Journal Club article should review the e-Publication Ahead of Print articles at for the most recently published material and email Neurology with their selection for prior approval.
Research articles and systematic reviews require a structured abstract. Many readers will only read the abstract and it is therefore important that it reflects what was done and found in the study. When appropriate, use reporting guidelines for abstracts (CONSORT, PRISMA) when preparing the abstract. The word limit for structured abstracts is 350 words. Do not include information that is not in the manuscript. When necessary, phrases may be used instead of full sentences. Refer to the list of widely accepted abbreviations that may be used without clarification in the abstract. The structured abstract must include the information described below, and authors are asked to reference recent journal issues for examples.
Upload text, tables, figures, references, reporting checklists, protocols and statistical analysis plans, and videos that are not part of the main manuscript but are submitted for review as supplemental material. Additional supplemental materials that may be required include revisions with tracked changes, responses to reviewers, consent-to-disclose forms, in-press articles, and license-to-publish forms for those authors opting for open access publication. During the upload process, use file names and labels that will make it obvious what the file contains.
Consequences include retraction of published articles, notification of the misconduct or breach in the journal, notification of institutional authorities or funding agencies and subsequent investigations, and loss of privileges of publishing in the journal.
Wolters Kluwer (WK), publisher of Neurology and Neurology: Clinical Practice, will submit an electronic version, on behalf of the authors, of the final published article of any study funded by NIH (or in which any of the authors are funded by NIH) to PubMed Central (PMC) for publication 12 months after print or online publication (whichever is first) in Neurology. The authorization is a non-exclusive license only for the purpose stated in the NIH Public Access Policy. The AAN reserves all rights not specifically granted in this non-exclusive license. Further information on the NIH Public Access Policy is available at:
WK will submit, on behalf of the authors, an electronic version of the final published article of any study funded by Austrian Science Foundation, Canadian Institute for Health Research, Howard Hughes Medical Institute, NIH, and World Bank to PMC within 12 months after print or online publication (whichever is first).

Embargo is the prohibition of releasing findings in a submitted or accepted paper to the public until after the article has been published (either online or in print) for copyright reasons. Prior to publication, authors may not reveal that the paper is under consideration at any Neurology journal when presenting at scientific meetings, or release information to the press, and must ensure that other organizations or institutions have been instructed of this policy. Exceptions to the embargo policy can be made at the editor's discretion for papers presented at AAN Annual Meetings or in situations in which the article describes major medical advances deemed critical to public health. Please note that the journals cannot guarantee that journal processes will be expedited to meet deadlines for presentation at other meetings. Consequences include notification of the breach in the journal, retraction of published articles, notification of institutional authorities, subsequent institutional investigation, and loss of privileges of publishing in the journal.
Open access articles published with a CC-BY license may be re-used for any purpose (including commercial) without requesting permission from the author or the journal. Content re-use must be attributed to the author and the journal.
Registered Reports are original research articles which undergo peer-review prior to data collection and analyses. This format is designed to minimize publication bias and research bias in hypothesis-driven research, while also allowing the flexibility to conduct exploratory (unregistered) analyses and report serendipitous findings. If you intend to submit a Registered Report to Scientific Reports, please refer to detailed guidelines here.
Overview Original Research articles are published in 2 formats: 1) in the printed journal: in an abbreviated form, that includes the abstract and 1 figure or table, and 2) in full on the Journal website (ajog.org), where the abstract also appears. The full-length article is the official version and is linked to search engines. Systematic Reviews, Expert Reviews, and Clinical Opinion articles are published in full in both print and online versions. Print and online versions for other article types are specified below.The full-length article becomes available online for citation before the print issue containing the abstract and accompanying material. Impact Factors and other citation indices are based on the full-length online article.
Translational science is typically presented in the form of an original research manuscript; however, the only type of non-clinical research considered must be translational in nature and contain biological implications for obstetrics and gynecology. Basic science without direct clinical relevance will not be considered; please see 'Trial and research guidelines' section for examples of acceptable translational science submissions.
For systematic review and meta-analysis studies, submit as a Systematic Review article type (instructions below; not as Original Research).
ARTICLE TYPES Original Research
Images in Obstetrics and GynecologyImaging articles present the opportunity to share an interesting, high-quality image related to obstetrics and gynecology and women's health. Priority will be given to those images of particular interest and quality, and those that provide the reader with key learning points to aid their practices. Up to 5 images may be included that exemplify the condition or case. One will be chosen for the print publication, and all will be published in full in the official on-line publication. Submissions must include a legend, not to exceed 750 words, and short title for use as a figure legend, to be printed in both the online and print versions. No abstract should be included but a tweetable statement should be provided. Supplementary material may include video.
Submission of an article implies that the work (including manuscript, figures, video clips, etc) described has not been published previously (except in the form of an abstract or as part of a published lecture or academic thesis or as an electronic preprint, see ), that it is not currently under consideration for publication elsewhere, that its publication is approved by all authors and tacitly or explicitly by the responsible authorities where the work was carried out, and that, if accepted, it will not be published elsewhere including electronically in the same form, in English or in any other language, without the written consent of the copyright-holder. Work that is already publically available in a substantially similar form (such as in the form of blogs, YouTube videos, etc) will not be considered for publication in AJOG under usual circumstances.All submissions are subject to review with iThenticate Professional Plagiarism Prevention.
Disclosures must include any financial interest present within the past three years with commercial entities that are marketing or developing products (drugs, devices, diagnostic tools, etc.) related to the subject matter of the manuscript. Disclosures include, but are not limited to: stocks or shares, equity, employment, advisory or scientific board, grant funding, speaker's bureau, paid travel, consulting status, and honoraria. The monetary value of any such stock holdings should be named. No policy could cover every contingency that might be construed as a conflict of interest. Therefore, it is expected that should any potential conflict of interest exist, the authors have revealed this to the editors. All relevant conflicts of interest and sources of funding should be included on the title page of the manuscript at the time of submission under the headings "Conflicts of Interest" and "Source of Funding" which will be published with the article. If the authors report no conflict, a statement of this will be published with the article. Failure to report disclosures may result in sanctions. Use as much or as little detail as appropriate.
For gold open access articles: Upon acceptance of an article, authors will be asked to complete a 'License Agreement' (more information). Permitted third party reuse of gold open access articles is determined by the author's choice of user license.
