The Journal of Stroke (JoS) provides 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 jour-nal will consider submissions in areas including, but not limited to, the following: pathophysiology, risk factors, symptomatology, imaging, treat¬ment, 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, hemorrhagic strokes, and relevant basic research¬es are welcome, as are issues in epidemiology, public education, and clinical practice guidelines in Asian countries.
The 2016 impact factor of the JOS is 5.576. The JOS will continue to provide high quality research papers for readers and strengthen its reputation.
JOS is published 3 times a year on the last day of January, May, and September. The online version is considered the canonical version of the jour¬nal because it includes all content available to the reader. Supplementary issues are occasionally published. Some or all of the articles in this jour¬nal are indexed in SCI(E), Pubmed, PubMed Central, Scopus, KoreaMed, Komci, Synapse, Science Central, Google Scholar and DOI/Crossref. The Journal is an official journal of the Korean Stroke Society (since 1999) and the abbreviated title is J Stroke. Readers can access articles at the Journal homepage.
