Current Issue Introduction

February 2016

Dear AJPM&R readers,  

This issue of the AJPM&R includes a variety of studies on distinct topics with different study designs (ie, RCTs, meta-analysis, proof-of-concept). Four articles and a focused review address questions relevant to arthritis, particularly osteoarthritis that affects millions of people around the world. Because of the importance of musculoskeletal conditions in the practice of the specialty, a related article examines the teaching of musculoskeletal medicine in residency training.  Enjoy reading!

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.
