The Neurodiagnostic Journal welcomes original manuscripts related to the technology, science, and practice of neurodiagnostics. The articles within the journal vary widely. Not only do the articles cover the various disciplines of neurodiagnostics but cover basic concepts to current research. Manuscripts are subject to a peer-review process to determine originality, validity, and importance of content and conclusions. Authors and reviewers will remain anonymous through the peer review process.
You can be the single author of an article or invite other technologists and physicians to co-author the article with you. Writing a review article is a way to learn more about an EEG pattern, a disease process, a seizure type, a surgical technique – anything that you want to know more about. Sharing an interesting case study or technique through an article is beneficial to your fellow technologists and adds “published author” to your resume.
Publishing the results of a research project helps to advance the profession. What better way to make your job more fulfilling, than to research a better way to apply electrodes, prevent skin breakdown, or handle staffing issues?
Your name and the abstract of your article will be listed on PubMed which is a service of the United States National Library of Medicine. When the public searches the Internet using a word in your title, they will be directed to PubMed and your article.
You earn 4 ASET-CEUs for every article published.

Additionally, the Janet Ghigo Award recognizes a student technologist author of an outstanding article published in The Neurodiagnostic Journal and encourages students who are enrolled in a Commission on Accreditation of Allied Health Education Programs (CAAHEP)-accredited program to write an article for journal. The award winner receives a plaque of recognition and a one-year paid ASET membership, and will be announced at the annual conference and in the journal.
