Dear Colleagues,

I am pleased to announce that the ‘Journal of Neurological Sciences (Turkish)' has now become the official journal of the Turkish Society of Clinical Neurophysiology EEG-EMG. The spectrum of publications we invite is still clinical neurology and experimental neuroscience but now with more focus on clinical and experimental neurophysiology.

Becoming the official journal of Turkish Society of Clinical Neurophysiology will enable us to expand our borders. Our first aim is to improve our impact factor and then to be referenced in PubMed. In order to achieve this, we have started to publish in English more than a year ago. We have now decided that all accepted papers should be checked by a native English speaker starting from first issue of 2017. After the acceptance of the papers, authors will have their papers checked by a native speaker. Full details will be posted in ‘Instructions to Authors'. We also need fast and dedicated reviewers, so if you wish to publish in the Journal, you should be prepared to review for the Journal - quickly.

We will also apply for DOI numbers for all accepted papers. From first issue of 2017 we are changing our style of the references – see Instructions to Authors. So I ask you all to keep the Journal in mind for submitting your manuscripts and reviewing the submissions.
