From the Editors Desk 2007 - Rehabilitation Research by wuyunyi


									                                The Journal of Rehabilitation Research and Development (JRRD) has
                            accomplished much in the past year, but we must start by thanking the
                            439 reviewers who volunteered their time and knowledge to review each
                            article submission.
                                The JRRD Web site is currently offline for construction and improve-
                            ment, and we are working hard to have access available again as soon as pos-
                            sible. However, journal production remains on schedule and articles may still
                            be submitted and reviewed through Manuscript Central (http://mc.manu-
                   because service has not been interrupted there. We are
                            also pleased to announce that 2007 was another record-breaking year for the
                            JRRD Web site, with more than 3.7 million downloads on six continents.
                                We launched a readership survey in 2007 to gather information on how
                            well JRRD meets the needs of authors, readers, and reviewers. In compari-
                            son to other rehabilitation research journals, more than 80 percent of
                            responders rated JRRD as “Good to Excellent” in the categories of scientific
                            credibility, critical application, visual appeal, online access, and single-topic
                            issues. The majority also indicated that they accessed JRRD through its Web
                            site several times a year. Open-ended responses were mostly positive, with
                            requests to increase the scope of covered topics, along with much encour-

Johanna L. Gribble, MA          JRRD continues to set trends in scientific publishing worldwide. After
                            the introduction of our “JRRD at a Glance” section, Science created an
                            “Authors’ Summary” section for their own technical articles to make infor-
                            mation more accessible to lay readers. We wish Science as much success as
                            we have found since implementing that feature!
                                In 2007, JRRD featured single-topic issues on spinal cord injury (SCI), pain
                            and pain management, psychosocial rehabilitation, and traumatic brain injury
                            (TBI) and polytrauma, all of which were well received within the rehabilitation
                            community. For 2008, we plan to cover such issues as SCI and stroke exercise
                            rehabilitation, posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD), fall prevention, cochlear
                            implants, and cutting-edge prosthetic and orthotic technology. These topics are
                            especially timely with the creation of congressionally mandated Department of
                            Defense research programs investigating TBI and PTSD, in which Department
                            of Veterans Affairs investigators are involved.
                                Again, we deeply appreciate all who volunteer their time and expertise
                            to continue to keep JRRD excellent. We hope that the relationships we have
                            cultivated will continue to expand. As always, we welcome your input.
                            Thank you.
