With great pride and excitement ISPRM announces the launch of the Journal of the International Society of Physical and Rehabilitation Medicine (JISPRM).
The journal will be an official publication of the ISPRM that will cater to the scientific, educational and advocacy needs of its members, and will support the advancement of disability management and physical and rehabilitation medicine (PRM) worldwide.
The JISPRM also seeks to advance the quality and value of PRM research by encouraging the confluence of biophysical, psychosocial and medical sciences, and in doing so influence contemporary evidence-based PRM practice around the globe. Further it will serve as a forum for discussion of controversial issues regarding PRM, rehabilitation, disability management that affect persons with limitation of function and participation. The JISPRM will collaborate with other journals and publications to collectively advance the common mission of promoting PRM internationally.
ISPRM expresses its gratitude to Gerard Francisco, Editor-in-Chief of the JISPRM, for his efforts and dedication in the launch of The journal.
“Congratulations to Prof. Francisco and his editorial board as well as to the Publications and Communications Committee for a very important accomplishment. The JISPRM will be an important instrument for the growth of PRM in the world.” – Walter Frontera, ISPRM President-Elect
