Notes For Contributors:

Open Access

This option permits the article to be visible, free of charge, to anyone in the world who has access to the internet. See the Optional Editorial Services List that you will receive at the time of acceptance of the manuscript by the Publisher for details.

Description Of The Peer Review Process

Papers will be solicited through the organs of fields impacting on rehabilitation science. Peer review will be performed on each paper but will not be blind. Papers will be ranked as accepted without revision, accepted but with minor revision, requiring major rework and an additional review, or rejected. We do desire to create dialogue within the rehabilitation community, and reviewer’s comments, when appropriate, will be included with the published paper.

Manuscript Submission

Manuscripts for the Journal of Functional Neurology, Rehabilitation, and Ergonomics (FNRE) must be submitted directly to the Editor-in-Chief by email only.

Prof. Dr. Gerry Leisman

Type Of Manuscripts Accepted

FNRE accepts review papers, articles of original research, data-based and controlled case studies pertaining to Functional Neurology, Man-Machine Interaction, Rehabilitation Sciences, brain-behavior relationships, and in applied cognitive neuroscience that relates to translational research. Engineering proof-of-concept applied to functional neurology as ergonomics are also welcome.

FNRE also welcomes commentary on either the review papers or on original research as the journal intends to be an archival source of discussion of new advances in rehabilitation.

Manuscript Requirements

1. Manuscripts must be written in English and be typewritten with double spacing throughout the entire text and with margins of at least 2.5 cm. An original on 8½" ´ 11" heavy duty white bond paper and two duplicate copies should be provided. An email copy as a file attachment in MS WORD for WINDOWS or a text file must also be submitted by email to the above indicated email address.

2. Each manuscript must have a title page (first page) that includes the title, the authors’ full names, the laboratory or origin of the data, a running head, a list of 6-8 key words, and the name, shipping address, email address, phone number, and FAX number of the person to whom correspondence and proofs should be mailed.

3. Full length review articles should be divided into sections in the following order: Synopsis, Body (with relevant sub-headings), Acknowledgements, and References. Short notes should contain no sections. Number pages consecutively.

4. Abbreviations should be defined when first used by placing them in parentheses after the full term; e.g., acetylcholin-esterase (AChE).

5. References will follow the "Uniform requirements for manuscripts submitted to biomedical journals" (also called the Vancouver style, see ) determined by the International Committee of Medical Journal Editors and used for PubMed/Medline journals. Abbreviations of journal names should conform to the Index Medicus.

References In Specific

References (maximum of 25 for articles, 40 for review articles, and 5 for case reports) should be cited consecutively (enclosing the number in parenthesis) in the text and listed in the same numerical order at the end of the paper. The Vancouver Style is required ( ).

The first reference in the text should be (1) and the next (2) and so forth and then listed accordingly at the end of the paper after Discussion or after Acknowledgements.

6. Case studies: FNRE will publish limited case-study material as long as the appropriate format is followed including the format for references, figures, and tables. The conclusions must be supported by laboratory-based evidence presented within the case study. The authors of case study materials are strongly encouraged to study the following websites that may be useful in increasing the likelihood of the material being published (e.g.,index or

7. Tables and Figures: All diagrams, photographs, illustrations, and charts (not tables) should be referred to in the text as Figures, and they should be numbered consecutively with Arabic numerals. These figures must be supplied as separate electronic files named in the format in which they were created, and they must be one of the following types: tiff, bitmap, jpeg, gif, ppt, psd, png, or eps. The resolution of these figures must be 350-750 dpi. The higher the resolution is, the clearer the printed image will be.

Figures must also be placed inside or at the end of the manuscript. If scanned images are used, please retain the original hard copy of the figure for possible transmission to Nova Science Publishers. If previously published figures are used, written permission from the copyright holders must be obtained and submitted along with the text indicating the copyright holder’s citation instructions. Such permissions must grant unrestricted use.

8. Color graphics will be billed at the prevailing rate as enumerated on the Optional Editorial Services List.

9. Galley proofs: Only printers’ errors may be corrected. There are no page changes.

Conflict-of-Interest Statement
Public trust in the peer review process and the credibility of published articles depend in part on how well conflict of interest is handled during writing, peer review, and editorial decision making. Conflict of interest exists when an author (or the author's institution), reviewer, or editor has financial or personal relationships that inappropriately influence (bias) his or her actions (such relationships are also known as dual commitments, competing interests, or competing loyalties). These relationships vary from those with negligible potential to those with great potential to influence judgment, and not all relationships represent true conflict of interest. The potential for conflict of interest can exist whether or not an individual believes that the relationship affects his or her scientific judgment. Financial relationships (such as employment, consultancies, stock ownership, honoraria, paid expert testimony) are the most easily identifiable conflicts of interest and the most likely to undermine the credibility of the journal, the authors, and of science itself. However, conflicts can occur for other reasons, such as personal relationships, academic competition, and intellectual passion.

- International Committee of Medical Journal Editors ("Uniform Requirements for Manuscripts Submitted to Biomedical Journals") - February 2006

Functional Neurology, Rehabilitation, and Ergonomics requires all authors and reviewers to declare any conflict of interest that may be inherent in their submissions.

Statement of Informed Consent
Patients have a right to privacy that should not be infringed without informed consent. Identifying information, including patients' names, initials, or hospital numbers, should not be published in written descriptions, photographs, and pedigrees unless the information is essential for scientific purposes and the patient (or parent or guardian) gives written informed consent for publication. Informed consent for this purpose requires that a patient who is identifiable be shown the manuscript to be published. Authors should identify Individuals who provide writing assistance and disclose the funding source for this assistance.

Identifying details should be omitted if they are not essential. Complete anonymity is difficult to achieve, however, and informed consent should be obtained if there is any doubt. For example, masking the eye region in photographs of patients is inadequate protection of anonymity. If identifying characteristics are altered to protect anonymity, such as in genetic pedigrees, authors should provide assurance that alterations do not distort scientific meaning and editors should so note.

Statement of Human and Animal Rights
When reporting experiments on human subjects, authors should indicate whether the procedures followed were in accordance with the ethical standards of the responsible committee on human experimentation (institutional and national) and with the Helsinki Declaration of 1975, as revised in 2000 (5). If doubt exists whether the research was conducted in accordance with the Helsinki Declaration, the authors must explain the rationale for their approach, and demonstrate that the institutional review body explicitly approved the doubtful aspects of the study. When reporting experiments on animals, authors should be asked to indicate whether the institutional and national guide for the care and use of laboratory animals was followed.
