About the Journal

Aims & Scope

Journal of Rehabilitation Medicine - Clinical Communications (JRM-CC) is an international, non-profit, Open Access journal that publishes articles of clinical relevance. It aims to fill a gap in the landscape of scientific and clinical publishing in rehabilitation medicine and affiliated fields, welcoming contributions that can develop and improve clinical practice.

Owned by the Foundation of Rehabilitation Information, JRM-CC is a forum for a broad range of interesting clinical papers including case studies, case series, pilot studies, educational papers, personal opinions, technical papers, short reports, summaries of PhD-theses, position papers, extended abstracts etc. These may attract attention to unconventional interventions or to symptoms that have been overlooked or missed previously. The main criterion for considering a submission will thus be the relevance for clinical practice in Rehabilitation Medicine.

Through the Open Access publishing model and the inclusion in PubMed, one of the world’s largest databases for medical journals, the articles in JRM-CC have a worldwide spread and are available to all.

Readership: A wide group of healthcare professionals including specialists in rehabilitation medicine, neurology, clinical neurophysiology, general medicine, psychologists, physiotherapists, occupational therapists and social workers.

Peer review Process

Upon submission all manuscripts are reviewed by one of the Chief-Editors. Some papers may be rejected at this stage as they do not meet basic scientific principles or deal with topics beyond the scope of JRM-CC. All other manuscripts will be entered into our peer review system and are sent to an Associate Editor as well as two reviewers with special expertise in the relevant subject field. JRM-CC applies a single-blinded peer review policy, meaning authors are not informed about the identity of the reviewers. When appropriate, the manuscript will also be sent to a special statistical consultant for evaluation.

Based on the feedback from the reviewers, the Editors thereafter decide whether the manuscript should be accepted directly (which in practice is rare), subject to minor or major revision before a final decision can be made, or rejected. The revised manuscript is usually sent to the reviewers again, sometimes including one further reviewer, before a final decision is made (or a decision to ask for further revision).

Archiving and Author Self-Archiving

Articles published in JRM-CC are permanently stored in full text in PubMed Central (PMC) and the journal is also part of the Public Knowledge Preservation Network for purposes of preservation and restoration.

Authors are permitted and encouraged to post their articles on personal and institutional websites after publication (while providing full bibliographic details and a link to the original publication).
