Official journal of LIMPE (Lega Italiana per la Lotta Contro la Malattia di Parkinson, le Sindromi Extrapiramidali e le Demenze, Italy), the German Parkinson Society (DPG, Deutsche Parkinson Gesellschaft), and the Japanese Basal Ganglia Society (JBAGS Japan Basal Ganglia Society)
Basal Ganglia focuses on all scientific aspects related to diseases of basal ganglia, especially movement disorders. It aims to connect medical researchers and clinicians in the field of neurology as well as other related fields. The journal will be an international platform for researchers and clinicians, publishing articles in English language after a thorough peer-review process.
Submissions covering the following research areas are welcome for publication: basic research such as anatomy, pathophysiology, diagnostics and therapy, as well as all clinical aspects dealing with movement disorders or diseases of basal ganglia.
Basal Ganglia focuses primarily on original research articles. These may cover randomized controlled studies, other clinical studies, observational and epidemiological studies and outcome research studies. In addition, the journal will feature state-of-the-art reviews, current opinion pieces and case reports.
