Journal of NeuroEngineering and Rehabilitation provides a forum for researchers and clinicians interested in understanding the way neuroscience and biomedical engineering are continuing to reshape physical medicine and rehabilitation and human movement augmentation. 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.

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.
Journal of NeuroEngineering and Rehabilitation has launched In Review, a new option that provides authors with on-demand information on the status of their manuscript, enables them to share their work with funders and their research community, and allows their colleagues to comment and collaborate - all whilst their manuscript is under review.Read more

David Reinkensmeyer, Editor-in-Chief
David Reinkensmeyer is a Professor in the Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering, the Department of Anatomy and Neurobiology, and the Department of Biomedical Engineering at University of California, Irvine. Prior to this, he received a B.S. degree in electrical engineering from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in electrical engineering from the University of California, Berkeley. He was a postdoctoral fellow then research assistant professor in the Sensory Motor Performance Program, Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago and Department of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, Northwestern University Medical School, before joining U.C Irvine in 1998. Prof. Reinkensmeyer's research interests include neuromuscular control, motor learning, robotics, and rehabilitation.
In 2019, David Reinkensmeyer was elected as fellow of American Institute for Medical and Biological Engineering (AIMBE) to recognize his innovative contributions to rehabilitation robotics and neural engineering, and for design of practical devices to enhance patient recovery.
