Journal of Neuro-Oncology

The Journal of Neuro-Oncology (JNO) is the official journal of the AANS and CNS Tumor Section. Nine other prominent organizations also help to sponsor the journal. The latest organization to sponsor the JNO is the Radiosurgery Society (RSS) and the Indian Society of Neuro-Oncology (ISNO). The RSS is a multi-disciplinary non-profit organization of surgeons, radiation oncologists, physicists and allied professionals. The organization is committed to advancing the science and clinical practice of radiosurgery. It has more than 600 members. The ISNO is a society with goals to conduct collaborative research on CNS and PNS tumors/cancers, exchange scientific information within the group and undertake medication education within their group. The JNO is pleased to have the support of the RSS and the ISNO.

The JNO hosted an Editorial Board reception during the 2018 CNS Annual Meeting in Houston. The reception was held at the Brasserie du Parc restaurant. Awards were given to Ian Dunn, MD, FAANS, and Michael Sughrue, MD, FAANS, who were the top JNO reviewers for 2017-2018.
