Become a Reviewer for the Neurology Journals

Peer reviewers' opinions of manuscripts are invaluable in assisting the Editor-in-Chief and Associate Editors in making their decisions. In addition to helping assess the value of a manuscript for the scientific literature and Neurology, in particular, reviewers help authors to improve their manuscripts by recommending areas for the author to address (either for Neurology or an alternate journal if a manuscript is ultimately rejected by Neurology).
