Standards of reporting

Journal of NeuroEngineering and Rehabilitation advocates the complete and transparent reporting of research and methods. Authors are required to follow relevant reporting guidelines and append the appropriate reporting guideline checklist to their manuscript on submission, available from the EQUATOR Network. See BMC’s policy page for further information.

Aims and scope

Journal of NeuroEngineering and Rehabilitation considers manuscripts on all aspects of research that result from cross-fertilization of the fields of neuroscience, biomedical engineering, and physical medicine and rehabilitation. JNER provides a forum for researchers and clinicians interested in understanding the way neuroscience and biomedical engineering are continuing to reshape physical medicine and rehabilitation. JNER hosts the introduction of new methods and the discussion of their clinical implications, and offers an opportunity to publish, in a timely manner, articles relevant to the intersection of these three fields.

Call for papers: tDCS application for motor rehabilitation

This series aims to address topics such as theoretical, methodological, and practical approaches to be considered when designing tDCS-based rehabilitation. Submission of both experimental and review studies is encouraged.
