Current Issue Introduction

October 2014

Dear AJPM&R readers,  

This issue of the AJPM&R includes an introduction and three articles that represent the views of the research committee of the Association of Academic Physiatrists on funding priorities. Recent developments and discoveries in science and significant changes in clinical practice (both within and outside of PM&R) require the revision of our research agenda and recommended areas for funding. The search for new knowledge as it relates to function and quality outcomes can be influenced and supported by new translational approaches to research. All those who follow and benefit from rehabilitation research should support this effort!

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.
