Let's fight against COVID-19 together!

Apr 24, 2020



Dear authors of Neurologico Spinale Medico Chirurgico (NSMC) Journal,

The fight against Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19) is happening right now in every corner of our world. Thousands of people have been lost in this fight, and many of them are healthcare workers. We express our gratitude and honor to all individuals, including physicians and other healthcare practitioners out there for your contribution to help each other in the ongoing battle against COVID-19 pandemic.

To raise awareness of this matter, and to share important information and findings to all medical practitioners in the world, we decided to accept and publish the articles about Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19). The authors may submit their COVID-19 themed papers in the format of original articles, case reports, case series, and review articles. Regular author instruction applies as displayed on our website: nsmc.indoscholar.com
All of the submitted COVID-19 themed articles will be prioritized to go through the fast track publication, with free APC, thus will be published as fast as possible according to our ongoing volume and issue. To maintain article quality, fast-track reviews will be as strict as they always have been.

We sincerely hope that this pandemic will be over soon, and hopefully, we can play a small part in this fight by contributing this share of knowledge and experiences to all physicians and healthcare practitioners around the world.

Dear colleagues, wherever you are, stay safe, stay healthy, and always spare sufficient time with your family in these difficult times. This too shall pass.
