Evolution of the Journal of Neurosurgery

Restricted access

✓ The Journal of Neurosurgery, begun in 1944, has successfully fulfilled the purposes of its founders. During the 50 years of its existence it has remained pre-eminent in its field, while evolving in presentation, size, and content in response to the needs of succeeding generations of neurosurgeons and allied specialists. This article draws from the memories of many people, from the minutes of meetings of the Editorial Board, and from reports of successive editors, and touches on some of the knotty problems faced by those dedicated individuals.
