The Journal of Neuropathology

and Experimental Neurology

The Journal of Neuropathology and Experimental Neurology (JNEN) is the official journal of the American Association of Neuropathologists (AANP). The Journal publishes original articles on neuropathology and experimental neuroscience, book reviews, letters, and Association news. It is written by and for neuropathologists, neurologists, neurosurgeons, pathologists, psychiatrists, and basic neuroscientists from around the world. Publication has been continuous since 1942.

Letters to the Editor/Brief Reports
Brief manuscripts, (e.g. a report of a single novel or unique case), should be submitted as a Letter to the Editor with an upper limit of five double-spaced text pages. The letter should not include distinct sections such as an Abstract, Introduction, Materials and Methods, Results or Discussion. Figures, tables, and references, if included, must fit within these constraints. Only reports deemed to be of high scientific value and potential widespread interest to the JNEN readership will be considered for publication. Letters may also be submitted to comment on articles published in the Journal or on specific aspects of neuropathology following these guidelines.

When submitted in the appropriate format, a brief report which offers new insight, will be considered for publication as a Letter to the Editor.
