Happy New Year!  Rehabilitation Oncology, is celebrating the new year in a new way.  We are now an entirely online only journal. This inaugural online issue is packed with important information for clinicians and researchers working with individuals with cancer:  2 systematic reviews, 3 research reports, and a commentary about providing care to those with stage IV cancer.  Readers will find our Research Round-up and Clinical Conversation columns, with valuable information connecting evidence to practice. The Research Round-up features information on the importance of a Clinically Integrated Physical Therapist to provide care rehabilitation care in non-traditional ways, meeting the needs of those diagnosed with cancer, while the Clinical Conversation promotes the need for physical therapy to patients with a high functional status.  Readers can also enjoy podcasts – this issue's on how lymphography can be used in the management lymphedema (see the Mackie et al piece) – click on the podcast link or go to Spotify for all of our offerings. 

The journal editorial team is happy to offer more relevant content to our readers via this new format.  May the new year bring all much peace.
