Current Issue Introduction

December 2014

Dear AJPM&R readers,  

This last issue of 2014 of the AJPM&R includes 4 manuscripts about stroke rehabilitation and 1 about the leading causes of disability. Three of the studies are randomized, controlled trials using a wide variety of interventions. Enhancing recovery and improving mobility in stroke survivors continue to be important challenges; solutions to these problems may find applications with other patient groups. The readers should also note that we have started to publish some Case Reports, Letters to the Editor, and Visual Vignettes online only. These are noted in the table of contents with the “e” sign. Enjoy!

Mandatory Use of Reporting Guidelines Starting January 1, 2015

The quality of a scientific article depends on the quality of both the research and the reporting. The AJPM&R has joined 27 other journals in our field (see editorial) to require the use of reporting guidelines in the preparation of manuscripts submitted for review starting January 1, 2015.  We encourage all authors to become familiar with key reporting guidelines, which are available at the EQUATOR Network website.
