A multi-disciplinary journal publishing exciting clinical and experimental research in this rapidly expanding field. High quality papers written by leading experts encompass all the major diseases including epilepsy, movement disorders, neuromuscular disorders, neurodegenerative disorders and mental retardation.


The Journal is managed by an international team of Editors, led by the Editor-in-Chief: Professor Sameer Zuberi, Royal Hospital for Sick Children, Glasgow, UK

The European Journal of Paediatric Neurology (EJPN) is the official journal of the EPNS and is available to all members in either electronic or print & electronic format. Published 6 times a year by Elsevier Ltd. on behalf of the society it accepts papers primarily of a clinical nature on the whole spectrum of paediatric neurological disease.

n 2017 there were in excess of 500 manuscripts submitted to the journal which were handled by an editorial team comprising Sameer Zuberi (Editor-in-Chief) and 4 Associate Editors; Alexis Arzimanoglou, Dimitrios Zafeiriou, Finbar O’Callaghan and Florian Heinen. Manuscripts include original research, reviews, letters to the editor and highly selected case reports. In 2017 we have made a concerted effort to include Editorial commentaries on key papers in every issue. The journal has a distinguished international Editorial Board of 30 specialists in the field who advise on the direction of the journal, special issues and review papers. In 2017 the impact factor rose to above 2.0 and we hope this trend will continue. This year we published an innovative special issue guest edited by Jean-Pierre Lin on Neuromodulation in Childhood and in early 2018 there will be a special issue on Movement Disorders in Childhood guest edited by Nardo Nardocci. Other planned Special Issues will cover the topics of Fetal Neurology and Epilepsy and Neurodevelopment. We will be expanding the Editorial Board to 60 members in early 2018 which we anticipate will help to bring Editorial times from submission of an article to electronic publication down.
