Clinical Neurophysiology Practice (CNP) is a new Open Access journal that focuses on clinical practice issues in clinical neurophysiology including relevant new research, case reports or clinical series, normal values and didactic reviews. It is an official journal of the International Federation of Clinical Neurophysiology and complements Clinical Neurophysiology which focuses on innovative research in the specialty. It has a role in supporting established clinical practice, and an educational role for trainees, technicians and practitioners.
Types of manuscripts for consideration include: educational reviews and expert-consensus clinical practice guidelines, original research papers (including papers reporting normative data), extended case reports, systematic reviews, editorials, and Letters to the Editor.
As a journal devoted to education and evidence-based clinical practice in the specialty, the priorities for Clinical Neurophysiology Practice differ from those of our companion IFCN journal Clinical Neurophysiology. Novelty is a critical issue for research-focused journals such as Clinical Neurophysiology, but is less important for Clinical Neurophysiology Practice. Quality papers may be rejected by research-focused journals because the studies do not report new advances in knowledge or are of low (research) impact, or because studies are deemed incremental, confirmatory, negative or outside journal priorities. However in clinical practice negative studies may be just as important as positive studies, and well-conceived papers reporting negative data or confirmatory results are welcome because clinical advances need confirmation before they are introduced into clinical care. Similarly, case reports can be particularly educational and are welcome. Case reports must have a neurophysiological focus and illustrate the diagnostic process, using figures that are of high quality. These reports are not specifically limited in length, the number of figures or the number of references.
