About Research Reports

Original Research submissions should follow a traditional approach with a hypothesis and statistical analysis to support conclusions. Manuscripts should be limited to 4000 words of text (Introduction, Methods, Results, Discussion and Conclusions) and include an abstract of no more than 250 words (Background, Objective, Method, Results and Conclusion). Submissions should include a separate title page with the title, titles and affiliations of all contributing authors, and the name and contact information for the corresponding author. All identifying details of authors must not be included in the manuscript.

Systematic Review submissions should systematically appraise relevant research related to a clearly formulated question in the rehabilitation sciences. Statistical methods (meta-analysis) may or may not be used to analyze and summarize the results of the chosen studies. Manuscripts should be limited to 4000 words of text (Introduction, Methods, Results, Discussion and Conclusions) and include an abstract of no more than 250 words (Background, Objective, Method, Results and Conclusion).

Case Study or Case Series submissions should report on a new or unusual condition, syndrome or occurrence in clinical practice of the rehabilitation sciences. A case study or case series should not draw conclusions about the effects of an intervention but should include a humanities based perspective or approach. Manuscripts should be no more than 2000 words in the text and should include an introduction, patient or event description, presentation of data collection and discussion. An abstract of less than 250 words should also be included.
