The Parkinson’s Foundation, in partnership with Nature Publishing Group (NPG), publishes npj Parkinson’s disease, a scientific journal dedicated to highlighting the most important scientific advances in Parkinson’s disease (PD).

The journal is available online and is open access, helping academics, clinicians and people with PD to stay up to date with the latest research. Each published article is accompanied by an easy-to-read summary for the Parkinson’s community.

“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 the Parkinson’s Foundation’s goal to solve, treat and end Parkinson’s disease once and for all. And science can get us there,” said James Beck, PhD, Parkinson’s Foundation Vice President and Chief Scientific Officer.
