"As editors of npj Parkinson's Disease, our goal is to help hasten advances in PD by providing a home where the results of the latest research can be shared. We focus on cutting edge research in care and science of PD, and in both areas — in addressing unmet needs."

npj Parkinson's Disease

The Parkinson’s Disease Foundation (PDF) is pleased to partner with Nature Publishing Group to publish npj Parkinson’s disease, a scientific journal sharing the latest in Parkinson's disease research.

“Our primary goal of working with NPG is to create a home where the best science about Parkinson’s disease can be gathered in one place. It is PDF’s goal to solve, treat and end Parkinson’s disease once and for all. And science can get us there,” noted James Beck, Ph.D., Vice President for Scientific Affairs at PDF.

The journal is available online and is open access, enabling academics, clinicians and people with PD to stay up-to-date with the latest research. For each article published, the journal offers an easy-to-read lay summary for the Parkinson’s community.

PDF invites scientists to submit their articles for future publication and to learn more about the journal's editorial team below.
