NeuroRx® Changes Name to Neurotherapeutics


Philadelphia, 04 January 2007 - NeuroRx®, the official journal of the American Society for Experimental NeuroTherapeutics (ASENT), published by Elsevier, will be changing its name to Neurotherapeutics as of the January 2007 issue. Elsevier, the Editor-in-Chief and Editorial Board for NeuroRx® and the ASENT Board members worked closely together in 2006 to develop a new name to reinforce the true focus of the journal.

Neurotherapeutics is a unique publication providing critical reviews on selected topics in therapy of neurological disorders. Each quarterly issue focuses on dedicated topic(s), with internationally recognized authorities sharing their in-depth understanding. Neurotherapeutics offers a multidisciplinary perspective on high-profile topics in neurotherapeutics, taking in not just the scientific issues but also their social and ethical ramifications.

“Neurotherapeutics more clearly reflects the intended meaning of the journal title and positions it more accurately in the field,” said Editor-in-Chief, Alan I. Faden, MD.

Citations for prior issues of the journal, which is indexed by PubMed Central and MEDLINE, will be available under both NeuroRx® and Neurotherapeutics.
