The ongoing global coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic, caused by severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2), has caused hundreds of millions of infections, and millions of deaths have been attributed to the disease. Publishing research on Covid-19 is crucial to understand how it affects patients, to combat the disease, and to ultimately overcome this global health emergency. The Journal of Neurology has dedicated an article collection to neurological research in connection to Covid-19. This article collection aims to gather all articles relevant to neurological disease and Covid-19 in one place, so that researchers and clinicians can easily access reviews, original articles, short commentaries and case reports on the subject. The article collection on Covid-19 will remain open; manuscripts on Covid-19 can be submitted freely to the journal and will be added to the collection upon publication. Submissions on Covid-19 are subject to the rigorous peer review the journal conducts for all unsolicited manuscripts. Peer review of Covid-19 manuscripts is steered by Massimo Filippi, one of the Chief Editors of Journal of Neurology. A related collection in the journal features articles on Long COVID-19 Syndrome.
