Two new editors selected for the online journal,
Movement Disorders—Clinical Practice

The Movement Disorder Society’s (MDS) Editorial Search Committee has selected editors for the Eastern and Western hemisphere positions for Chief Editors of the Society’s new online journal, Movement Disorders – Clinical Practice. Kailash Bhatia, MD, DM, FRCP, London, United Kingdom, and Marcelo Merello, MD, PhD, Buenos Aires, Argentina, have been selected to serve as the editors of this new MDS publication.

Launching in 2014, Movement Disorders—Clinical Practice, is the new e-only journal from The Movement Disorder Society. The sister publication to Movement Disorders, Movement Disorders-Clinical Practice seeks to publish peer-reviewed articles that are focused on clinical practice and educational issues relevant to movement disorders neurology. Particular emphasis will be placed on updates in clinical patient management, new advances in clinical diagnosis, novel observations on phenomenology, and practice-related management. This journal will also publish important individual case presentations, case series, and vignettes with and without accompanied videos. Articles will be fully citable from launch using the doi (digital object identifier) system and will be searchable on Wiley Online Library and other search engines.

Because of its web-based format, new technologies that can include reader feedback, voting by the readership, and immediate contact between authors and readers can be facilitated. Further, because of its web-based format, Movement Disorders—Clinical Practice can consider reports on clinical material that require text lengths larger than those permitted in Movement Disorders, including practice controversies and clinical-pathological correlations. Because there are no restrictions on the use of color images on the website, articles with many images are particularly appropriate for this venue. More information regarding the article submission process will be posted at a later date.
