Current Issue Introduction

September 2014

Dear AJPM&R readers,  

New technologies and interventions have become available to enhance the rehabilitation of patients with complex brain disorders. In this issue of the AJPM&R, we publish 5 manuscripts that address different aspects of this challenge in diverse patient populations. Two of the articles emphasize the importance of cortical plasticity and motor recovery, and the feasibility of a type of strengthening exercise is explored in a Brief Report. This issue also includes a review of suspension systems for transfemoral amputees, a difficult engineering challenge. Finally, a Case Report, two Visual Vignettes, and a Clinical Note illustrate unique findings or diagnostic approaches, or both. This month's lineup is an illustration of the clinical and scientific richness of PM&R.

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.
