The DMRF has partnered with Frontiers Media to launch Dystonia, an open access journal. The journal will bring visibility to the growing dystonia field and highlight advancements in science and clinical practice. This is the first scientific journal exclusively dedicated to dystonia and a major milestone for the dystonia scientific community. Up until this point, dystonia studies have been published in various neurology and neuroscience journals. Since the beginning of 2020 alone, more than 1,600 dystonia papers have been scattered across the medical literature. On average, three new dystonia papers are published every day. Dystonia provides a centralized, go-to publication by and for dystonia investigators. It is Gold Open Access, which means the content is available to the medical community and public at no charge to readers. Manuscripts are being accepted now at www.frontierspartnerships.org/journals/dystonia. The journal is partially supported by the Joan Miller Young Investigator Fund and Tuft Family Foundation.
