Aims and Scope
Progress in Rehabilitation Medicine, the official journal of the Japanese Association of Rehabilitation Medicine, is Open Access, fully peer-reviewed, and covers all disciplines of rehabilitation medicine. The journal works to advance the field by providing an outlet for important local and regional insights to be disseminated to a broad global audience.
The journal publishes high-quality articles that are scientifically valid, ethically based, and contribute to the overall global advancement in basic, clinical, health-care and translational rehabilitation medicine. Articles can be set at a local scale or within a specific cultural system, but should be appropriately placed within a wider medical, social and cultural context.
The journal considers all sub-specialties within rehabilitation medicine, but is particularly interested in highlighting areas in which the Asian region holds particular expertise. These include neurological and mental health, musculoskeletal health, internal medicine, pediatrics, geriatrics, technology transfer, and regenerative medicine.
Progress in Rehabilitation Medicine publishes Original Articles, Case Reports, and Review Articles and our editors offer authors rigorous, rapid, and fair peer review with constructive feedback. Accepted articles are usually published as Advanced Online Publications within approximately 14 days after acceptance.
