Current Issue Introduction

April 2015

Dear AJPM&R readers,  

This month's issue of the AJPM&R highlights 6 research articles. Of note are 2 articles on outcomes. It is not an overstatement to say that outcomes studies are crucial to support our current practices and more of them are needed for future developments. This is particularly true when outcomes have functional implications. An interesting position paper on the preservation of upper extremities in wheelchair users is also included. Please also access the online version to read the Case Reports and Visual Vignettes included in this issue.

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.
