The 2nd most cited open-access journal in Clinical Neurology
The section is dedicated to providing a forum for the publication of innovations, analyses, and observations in clinical, translational and basic science research relevant to child neurology. The scope is broad and multidisciplinary, focusing on neurological conditions occurring in childhood. Our ultimate goal is to promote the health, development, education, and welfare of children throughout the world.
The section is dedicated to providing a forum for the publication of innovations, analyses, and observations in clinical, translational and basic science research relevant to child neurology. The scope is broad and multidisciplinary, focusing on neurological conditions occurring in childhood. Our ultimate goal is to promote the health, development, education, and welfare of children throughout the world. Articles relating to the latest clinically relevant findings from well designed, high-quality research in this diverse area are priorities for the section. We believe that this can only be accomplished through international and interdisciplinary co-operation and communication utilizing all aspects of modern cutting-edge electronic media.
The Pediatric Neurology section of Frontiers in Neurology encourages submissions from child neurologists, as well as adult neurologists, with interest and expertise in pediatric neurological disorders. We also invite relevant contributions from our colleagues in general pediatrics, developmental neurosciences, and the pediatric subspecialties. High-quality review articles, clinical and basic science studies are encouraged for submission but case reports of under 5 patients cannot be considered by the section. We shall diligently endeavor to develop and maintain a distinguished international panel of subsection editors and reviewers. We shall provide prompt, scholarly and constructive reviews of all articles submitted.

PMCID: coming soon for all published articles
Pediatric Neurology welcomes submissions of the following article types: Brief Research Report, Case Report, Clinical Study Protocol, Clinical Trial, Correction, Editorial, Hypothesis and Theory, Methods, Mini Review, Opinion, Original Research, Perspective, Review and Systematic Review.
All manuscripts must be submitted directly to the section Pediatric Neurology, where they are peer-reviewed by the Associate and Review Editors of the specialty section.
Articles published in the section Pediatric Neurology 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 and Pediatrics.
