Editorial Board Meeting, some great news!

It became clear to me at this ESC that the International Journal of Stroke are not only recognized as a an excellent source for global science and information on stroke but for having the most fun at their editorial board meetings. This wasn't an intended agenda but is of course a reflection of excellent leadership, and the collaborative environment we have built with authors, reviewers, the editorial board, associate editors and the editor-in-chief. There was excellent feedback, and the sad departure of Associate Editor Lawrence Wong, who needless to say has been an incredibly supportive and quality contributor to IJS. Gavin Sharrock from Wiley-Blackwell is predicting a possible impact factor increase from 2.0 to 2.4 and over, which is an exciting development considering our youth.

International Journal of Stroke Editorial Board Meeting

Robot Doctor - another term for telemedicine
Barcelona weather is warm and the city as always, is charming. The European Stroke Conference as always, has an excellent line-up, although as is common for this meeting not a great representation of allied health professionals. Though I'm sure this is only going to get better as doctors from countries with good allied health relationships attend the meeting and vocalise their support of allied health and it's importance in the field of stroke.
