Springer adds Journal of Neurodevelopmental Disorders to biomedical journal portfolio

Springer is launching the Journal of Neurodevelopmental Disorders to complement its portfolio of biomedical journals. Published quarterly, it will be available in both online and print formats beginning March 2009. Target audiences will include both researchers and clinicians interested in an integrated, interdisciplinary perspective on the pathogenesis and treatment of neurodevelopmental disorders.

The Journal of Neurodevelopmental Disorders is aimed at integrating current, cutting-edge research across a number of disciplines − neurobiology, genetics, cognitive neuroscience and psychology − and disorders. The primary focus will be on pathogenesis: that is, the study of the origin and development of a disease or disorder. Treatment studies which lead to new insights about the pathogenesis of neurodevelopmental disorders will be relevant subjects for this publication. An international editorial board will support Editor-in-Chief Dr. Joseph Piven of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.

Ann Avouris, Editor, Neuroscience, at Springer, said, "I am proud to welcome the journal into our portfolio of groundbreaking publications in translational research. The Journal of Neurodevelopmental Disorders will support and promote interdisciplinary research into such disorders as autism, Fragile X Syndrome and tuberous sclerosis, helping to bridge the gap between basic research and treatment in these critical areas."

Dr. Joseph Piven, Editor-in-Chief, said, "Progress in understanding the pathogenesis of complex neurodevelopmental disorders will require an interdisciplinary perspective that juxtaposes a number of disorders to tease apart common and unique aspects of their phenomenology and underlying mechanisms. The Journal of Neurodevelopmental Disorders will provide a forum for this research."

The Journal of Neurodevelopmental Disorders will be available in print and on Springer's online platform All articles will be published online via Online First before they appear in print, thereby ensuring rapid dissemination of papers to the scientific community. The journal will include Cross Reference Linking and ToC Alerts, a feature by which subscribers receive the table of contents by email weeks in advance of the new issue. All authors, via the Springer Open Choice program, will have the option of publishing their articles using the open access publishing model.
