Current Issue Introduction

August 2014

Dear AJPM&R readers,  

This issue of the AJPM&R includes six Original Research Articles. Four include results of studies with an emphasis on the always-important topic of functional outcomes. Two aspects of cancer rehabilitation are discussed in the other two Original Research Articles. One of these articles evaluates a new tool for functional evaluation, and the other is a meta-analysis of the benefits of exercise in cancer fatigue. For those involved in resident education, an article on competencies for interventional pain management is an essential read!

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.
