The Journal of Stroke is an official journal of the Korean Stroke Society and the abbreviated title is JOS. It will be launched in 2013 and is published 3 times a year on the last day of January, May, and September. 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 are unique and distinct from other ethnic groups. Clinical and basic research on intracranial atherosclerosis, small vessel diseases, or hemorrhagic strokes in human and animal models is welcome, as is research on issues in epidemiology, public education, and clinical practice guidelines in the Asian region.
