The Journal of Stroke (JoS) is published 3 times a year on the last day of January, May, and September. The 2015 impact factor of the JOS is 4.795. The JOS will continue to provide high quality research papers for readers and strengthen its reputation.
JOS will provide stroke clinicians and researchers with peer-reviewed articles on clinical and basic investigation of cerebral circulation and associated diseases to enhance patient management, education, clinical or experimental research, and professionalism.
The journal will consider submissions in areas including, but not limited to, the following: pathophysiology, risk factors, symptomatology, imaging, treatment, and rehabilitation of stroke. We have a particular interest in strokes in Asian populations as they have features distinct from strokes in the other part of the world. Clinical researches on intracranial atherosclerosis, small vessel diseases, or hemorrhagic strokes, and relevant basic researches are welcome, as are issues in epidemiology, public education, and clinical practice guidelines in Asian countries.
The online version is considered the canonical version of the journal because it includes all content available to the reader.
Supplementary issues are occasionally published. Some or all of the articles in this journal are indexed in Scopus, Pubmed, PubMed Central, KoreaMed, Google Scholar and DOI/Crossref.
The printed version of the journal is free if a reader is registered with the Korean Stroke Society, otherwise readers can access articles at the Journal homepage. The URL address of the journal is http://j-stroke.org and
http://submit.j-stroke.org. The journal was supported by the Korean Federation of Science and Technology Societies Grant funded by the Korean Government (NEST).
