Dear AJPM&R Readers,

A review can be considered a critical appraisal of the published literature on a particular topic. In this month's new special research section of the AJPM&R we include a discussion of the methods, characteristics, and indications of scoping reviews. Furthermore, an example of a scoping review is included in the section on literature reviews on the topic of registered clinical studies looking at the management of acute spinal cord injuries (as a side comment, registration of clinical studies is a requirement of many journals before review and publication of a manuscript, but registries are not standardized). In the same section, a different and narrative review is also included. On the topic of spinal cord injury, this issue also includes a brief report on the potential benefits of bodyweight supported training during rehabilitation. An additional 9 research articles and two papers on COVID-19 are part of the contents of this second issue of 2022. Finally, related to the philosophical base of our medical specialty, we are publishing a randomized controlled trial on the important topic of knowledge and attitudes towards disability of medical students.

Happy reading!
