CALL FOR PAPERS
Archives of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation announces a Focus Issue on patient safety and quality in rehabilitation. This topic has gained increasing importance in recent years with a series of National Academy of Medicine publications. Archives’ editors seek methodologically rigorous original research, systematic reviews, brief reports, and special communication submissions that advance clinical practice in rehabilitation settings.
Submissions may focus on specific rehabilitation-relevant clinical populations, disciplines, services, and settings. We anticipate accepted submissions appearing in the November 2017 issue. Manuscripts should be submitted by 30 April 2017 in order to complete peer review in sufficient time. In your accompanying cover letter please note your submission is for this focus issue. For additional information, please contact Glenn Collins, Managing Editor.
Archives Elite Reviewers 2016
The Editorial Board congratulates the Archives’ 2016 Elite Reviewers. The designation of Elite Reviewer reflects the number, timeliness and quality of reviews contributed to the Archives as judged by the editors. We would not have achieved recognition as a leading rehabilitation journal and been able to contribute to the scientific literature without the dedicated support of our reviewers. Thank you for your many contributions to the peer review process.
