Collaborative initiative involving 28 rehabilitation and disability journals

09/04/2014

28 major rehabilitation and disability journals have joined together in a collaborative initiative to enhance research reporting standards through adoption of reporting guidelines. The initiative requires authors to use relevant reporting guidelines when preparing their manuscripts for submission to any one of the 28 journals involved in the initiative. Reviewers will also be asked to use reporting guidelines when peer reviewing submitted manuscripts. It is hoped that by joining together the quality of research reports, spanning all 28 major rehabilitation and disability journals, will be improved enabling easier evaluation and better clinical applicability.
