What does the “New Neurology” mean for the Resident and Fellow Section?

Beginning in January 2018, there will be extensive design and formatting changes in Neurology.  The updated website, including a Resident and Fellow Section (RFS) page, was already launched and has new exciting features such as rss feed for this blog, new e-Pearls presentation, and compilation of the latest RFS articles.  There are also links to other residents and fellow resources on the Neurology website and at AAN.  Readers will notice that the print version of Neurology has a new design on the cover and for the articles.  Graphics may have changed many times over the years, but the “New Neurology” represents a paradigm shift in publishing model with the introduction of electronic–long–paper–short (ELPS). ELPS means that there will be a long, official (also known as canonical), version of the article online and a 1-page summary version produced by medical writer in the print journal.  Articles with shorter formats such as case reports will continue to be printed in their entirety.  This is an exciting time for the RFS because with this change we will now have the ability to print one RFS article in every issue.  In addition, there is a new “Resident and Fellow Rounds” commentary written monthly by the RFS section editors that provides summaries of the RFS articles published with each issue.  The RFS editorial team members are proud of the additional exposure through print distribution and expect that this will undoubtedly encourage the continued submission of high-quality manuscripts.
