Frontiers journals are at the top of citation and impact metrics
Movement Disorders is a fast-growing field of scientific and clinical knowledge that receives contributions from neuroscientists, neurologists, neurosurgeons, psychiatrists, neuropediatricians and psychologists. Movement disorders are developing as a truly interdisciplinary area: the clinical phenomenology derives from the interactions of a number of brain regions aimed at providing motor control under different functional states.
The main focus of Movement Disorders is on normal and abnormal functioning of the motor system and on the possibilities to treat motor dysfunctions. While this Specialty Section is primarily centered on clinical studies, basic research with relevant translational value is also welcome. We encourage submissions that address key questions related to the etiology, pathophysiology, diagnosis and management of movement disorders, either akinetic syndromes, such as Parkinson’s disease and other Parkinsonian conditions, or hyperkinetic syndromes, such as dystonia, tics, choreas and tremors. Submissions that address interdisciplinary issues are also strongly encouraged. We plan to make Movement Disorders a reference forum for the fast publication of research data.

PMCID: all published articles receive a PMCID
Movement Disorders welcomes submissions of the following article types: Brief Research Report, Case Report, Clinical Trial, Correction, Editorial, General Commentary, Methods, Mini Review, Opinion, Original Research, Perspective, Review and Systematic Review.
All manuscripts must be submitted directly to the section Movement Disorders, where they are peer-reviewed by the Associate and Review Editors of the specialty section.
Articles published in the section Movement Disorders will benefit from the Frontiers impact and tiering system after online publication. Authors of published original research with the highest impact, as judged democratically by the readers, will be invited by the Chief Editor to write a Frontiers Focused Review - a tier-climbing article. This is referred to as "democratic tiering". The author selection is based on article impact analytics of original research published in all Frontiers specialty journals and sections. Focused Reviews are centered on the original discovery, place it into a broader context, and aim to address the wider community across all of Neurology.
