Aims and scope

Stroke and Vascular Neurology is the official journal of the Chinese Stroke Association. Supported by a team of renowned Editors, and fully open access, the journal encourages debate on controversial techniques, issues on health policy and social medicine.

Stroke and Vascular Neurology will appeal to clinical stroke neurologists, neurosurgeons and basic neuroscientists. It will consider submissions of clinical and translational original research, short reports, editorials, and reviews to improve patient care.

Ownership

Stroke and Vascular Neurology is published by BMJ on behalf of the Chinese Stroke Association.

Chinese Stroke Association (CSA) is an academic nonprofit professional organisation dedicated to stroke prevention, therapy, rehabilitation, research, quality of care and education. CSA represents all who are involved in this area of work. CSA held its inaugural national congress in Beijing on January 18, 2015, marking the establishment of the one and only national organization in the field of cerebrovascular disease. The mission of CSA is to unite and organize the professionals and volunteers of academic, scientific and public sectors to work together to promote the scientific research and reduce stroke incidence, disability and mortality. CSA will also promote and facilitate international collaboration and establishment of the Chinese model of multidisciplinary approach for prevention and control of stroke.

The impact that academic research has cannot be defined by one single metric. In 2013, BMJ signed the San Francisco Declaration on Research Assessment (DORA). We did this to show our support for using multiple measures and metrics to portray journals’ impact; moving away from the Impact Factor as a single measure.
