UT Health Austin Pediatric Neurosciences at Dell Children’s will be home to the Child Neurology Society’s new peer-reviewed medical journal, Annals of the Child Neurology Society.
The society created ACNS as a clinically focused companion journal to its highly regarded official journal, Annals of Neurology. ACNS will publish clinical and translational research articles, epidemiological studies, clinically relevant basic science articles, case series, case reports, quality improvement articles, and commentaries on medicine or societal factors that affect the care of children with neurological disease.
The Dell Medical School pediatric neurology team will play key roles in the new journal’s operation. Neurology chief E. Steve Roach, MD, is the founding Editor-in-Chief of ACNS, and our medical editor, Christina Roth, is the journal’s managing editor. Roach, an experienced medical editor, concluded a nine-year stint as Editor-in-Chief of Pediatric Neurology at the end of 2021, and prior to this he was an associate editor of JAMA Neurology for 14 years. Before joining the Pediatric Neurosciences Program, Roth spent 15 years in various editorial roles in health care, book publishing, and academic publishing.
Additionally, our statistician, Yingchao Yuan, has been named Associate Editor for Statistics and Epidemiology, and child neurology faculty member Kristina Jülich, MD, has been appointed Associate Editor for Genetic Disorders.
“We are excited to announce the founding of Annals of the Child Neurology Society as an official journal of the society,” said Child Neurology Society President Bruce Cohen, MD. “This is arguably the most important venture for the society in many years, and we have created an outstanding editorial team, starting with Editor-in-Chief E. Steve Roach of The University of Texas at Austin Dell Medical School and Senior Associate Editor Phillip Pearl of Boston Children’s Hospital and Harvard Medical School.”

Ohio child neurologist Anup Patel, MD, President of the Child Neurology Foundation, agreed. “Annals of the Child Neurology Society is a major accomplishment for the Child Neurology Society. ACNS provides society members with a new venue for clinical research and observations, and we are fortunate to have such a strong editorial team to launch the journal.”
ACNS is owned by the Child Neurology Society but published via a contract with Wiley, much like the arrangement for Annals of Neurology between the American Neurological Association and Wiley. ACNS and the ANA’s Annals of Clinical and Translational Neurology will form an “Annals family” of journals.
