Neuro-Oncology to increase frequency with 2008 volume; ISI rating
continues to climb

The Society for Neuro-Oncology and Duke University Press are pleased to
announce that Neuro-Oncology is increasing in frequency. Beginning with
the 2008 volume (volume 10), the journal will increase from quarterly
publication to six issues per year.

The journal—whose ISI rating and editorial ties with esteemed national
and international neuro-oncology societies continue to place it as a
preeminent journal in the field—has benefited from an increase in
high-quality submissions from all over the world. To be able to include
the additional excellent research that supports the mission of the
journal, the editors and publisher have opted to increase the frequency
of publication.

“Increasing our frequency will be a boon to readers and authors alike,”
states managing editor Kathryn Carnes. “It will allow us to publish more
work—including an increasing amount of important work originating
outside the United States—within a faster time frame. It is our hope
that these changes will better serve the worldwide community of
professionals the journal represents by promoting rapid progress in
scientific inquiry and clinical practice related to neuro-oncology.”

Underscoring Neuro-Oncology’s importance as a leading journal in
neuro-oncology, the 2006 Journal Citation Report recently released by
Thomson’s ISI Web of Knowledge assigns Neuro-Oncology an ISI Impact
Factor of 4.939. The new ranking—up from 4.150 in 2005—places the
journal 14th among 146 ranked clinical neurology journals and 23rd among
127 ranked oncology journals.

Neuro-Oncology is the official journal of the Society for
Neuro-Oncology, the Japan Society for Neuro-Oncology, the European
Association for Neuro-Oncology, and the World Federation of
Neuro-Oncology Societies. Dedicated to providing superior and rapid
publication of information in all areas of neuro-oncology, the journal
contains peer-reviewed articles and reviews, symposia on selected
topics, published abstracts of annual meetings, and society news and
announcements from around the world.
