About Journal of Rehabilitation Medicine-CC
Journal of Rehabilitation Medicine-Clinical Communications
In January 2018 the Journal of Rehabilitation Medicine (JRM) launched a new open access journal: Journal of Rehabilitation Medicine – Clinical Communications (JRM–CC). This journal has now grown to become a recognized forum for clinicians in the area, and was recently accepted for inclusion in PubMed Central and PubMed.
Most journals today publish papers that report the results of research, written by professional researchers and read by other researchers active in the same field. For clinicians these papers may be difficult to interpret and put into practice in their daily clinical work. JRM-CC bridges this gap between research and real-life impact by focusing on clinical papers in rehabilitation medicine only. JRM–CC does not wish to compete with scientific journals established since a long time back, and a high impact factor is thus not the ultimate aim.
What kind of publications can you expect in JRM–CC?
JRM–CC covers a broad range of clinical papers including case studies, case series, pilot studies, educational papers, personal opinions, technical papers, short reports, PhD-thesis summaries, position papers, book reviews. etc. The main criterion for considering a submission is the relevance for clinical practice in Rehabilitation Medicine.
