Featured article: Adductor focal laryngeal Dystonia

"The results suggest that there is a strong correlation between subjects’ perception and clinicians’ assessment of the individual symptoms and the severity of the dysphonia and that voice arrests are infrequent in subjects with ongoing BoNT injections. The strong inter-clinician reliability further suggests that it is an appropriate measure for identifying symptoms and severity of adductor focal laryngeal dystonia."

Announcing the launch of In Review

Journal of Clinical Movement Disorders, in partnership with Research Square, is now offering In Review. Authors choosing this free optional service will be able to:

  • Share their work with fellow researchers to read, comment on, and cite even before publication
  • Showcase their work to funders and others with a citable DOI while it is still under review
  • Track their manuscript - including seeing when reviewers are invited, and when reports are received 


COVID-19 and impact on peer review

As a result of the significant disruption that is being caused by the COVID-19 pandemic we are very aware that many researchers will have difficulty in meeting the timelines associated with our peer review process during normal times.  Please do let us know if you need additional time. Our systems will continue to remind you of the original timelines but we intend to be highly flexible at this time.


We are pleased to announce that all articles published in Journal of Clinical Movement Disorders are included in PubMed and PubMed Central.

Aims and scope

Journal of Clinical Movement Disorders focuses on scientific investigations into the diagnosis, evaluation and management of patients with involuntary movement disorders. The journal reviews, illustrates and emphasizes clinical phenomenology as an indispensable tool for diagnosis and application of translational medicine to movement disorders. Topics covered in the journal include Parkinson's disease, tremor, dystonia, chorea, myoclonus, Huntington's disease, tics, deep brain stimulation, botulinum toxin, and pediatric movement disorders. Journal of Clinical Movement Disorders is particularly interested in receiving submissions on international perspectives and clinical observations in movement disorders, and welcomes investigations in both hypokinetic and hyperkinetic movement disorders. Video demonstrations of patients are also strongly encouraged.
