Current Issue Introduction

November 2014

Dear AJPM&R readers,  

This month's issue of the AJPM&R includes a collection of articles that represents the wide scope of unresolved clinical issues in rehabilitation. The regular issue will include, for the first time, Case Reports and Visual Vignettes that will be published online only. Our objective is to increase our capacity to publish high-quality content. Finally, accompanying this issue is a supplement dedicated to regenerative medicine in rehabilitation. This special supplement presents cutting edge research on a topic that may change the practice of PM&R. Happy reading!

Current Issue Highlights



In the News

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.
