On July 12, 2017, Professor Hua Su, Associate Director for Basic Science Research at the Center for Cerebrovascular Research, University of California, San Francisco, was invited to our office with her husband by Professor Zhao, Editor-in-Chief of NN, OAE’s Chairman Mr. Fan and all the editorial team. They were impressed by our orderly working atmosphere. After they were given a detailed presentation about NN by our Editor-in-Chief and managing editor, Prof. Su had a deeper understanding of the journal. Prof. Su praised our current efforts and progress, and suggested that we should make efforts to expand global awareness of NN, to make the journal more widely recognized by neurologists and scholars worldwide.
In addition, Prof. Su shared her opinions with us about her special issue of NN (”Stroke”) that is being prepared. Given the high incidence and mortality of stroke, coupled with its high recurrence rate and devastating complications, the medical profession has come to regard stroke as being one of the three major diseases (along with heart disease and cancer) that most threaten human health. Thus, clinical studies of stroke have more and more relevance and have gained increasing attention worldwide. Prof. Su believes that the articles included in this special issue will be of significant interest to many experts and scholars in the field. With the cooperation of NN’s editorial team, more experts and scholars in stroke research could become aware of the journal. This includes using the journal’s website not only for publishing online articles, but also as a platform to explore new developments and to support communication with academic professionals all over the world.
At the end of the meeting, Prof. Zhao and Mr. Fan expressed sincere gratitude to Prof. Su for her continuous support and concern for the journal, and for accepting the invitation to visit our office in such hot weather. Mr. Fan also expressed the determination of all the members of the NN staffs to achieve our goals. Even if our aims will be hard to achieve, every step we take forward will, little by little, lead us to ultimately accomplish our objectives. We firmly believe that under the leadership of Prof. Zhao and the joint efforts of all the EBMs and editorial staffs, NN will become increasingly successful and prominent as an influential scientific journal in the near future!
