The Canadian Journal of Neurological Sciences is the official publication of the four member societies of the Canadian Neurological Sciences Federation -- Canadian Neurological Society (CNS), Canadian Association of Child Neurology (CACN), Canadian Neurosurgical Society (CNSS), Canadian Society of Clinical Neurophysiologists (CSCN).

The Journal is a widely circulated internationally recognized medical journal that publishes peer-reviewed articles.

The Journal is published in January, March, May, July, September, and November.

The first Canadian Journal of Neurological Sciences (the Journal) was published in 1974 in Winnipeg. In 1981, the Journal became the official publication of the member societies of the CNSF.


The Journal Today

Today, the Journal continues to encourage the publication of papers from all branches of the neurosciences. Journal policy is based on the firm belief that specialists working on the nervous system share many common interests and have important ideas to communicate to each other.

The Journal publishes original work in both the clinical and basic neurosciences. The circulation is currently 1,200 and consists of society members, non-members and institutions in Canada, the United States and abroad.
