The Editor declares no conflicts of interest.
This issue begins with a Guest Editorial that will also be appearing in a number of rehabilitation journals that are part of an initiative designed to strengthen research reports published in our professional literature.
The initiative, supported by the Editorial Board of Pediatric Physical Therapy, involves the use of well-accepted guidelines for the written report of research studies. We, like other journals, will be strengthening the requirements that authors must meet in submitting their work, and our reviewers will be using guidelines developed for specific types of research designs as they review submissions. The use of these guidelines by reviewers will begin in January of 2015. In the meantime, authors are encouraged to use these various guidelines as resources when they prepare their submissions prior to January 2015. Our Instructions to Authors will be changing over the remainder of the year to bring our practices in line with this newly adopted practice.
I ask everyone to take time to read the Editorial by Chan, Heinemann, and Roberts1 that appears in full on the following pages, so you might become familiar with these efforts. We look forward to improving the quality of the research reports that appear in our journal and the quality of the information provided to our readers.
