Information for authors

Before going into the details of how to publish an article, please make sure you are familiar with our policies.

Authors should submit their manuscripts through the paper submission form on our website. The address of the institution where the author works, along with their phone number and email address, should be provided along with the manuscript. If there is more than one author, the address of the institution where they work should be provided by at least the first three authors. Unless stated otherwise, editors will consider the first author as the contact person. Please note that by submitting an article for publication you confirm that you are the corresponding/submitting author and that the journal may retain your email address for the purpose of communicating with you about the article. You agree to notify the journal immediately in case of any change.

The Journal Human Research in Rehabilitation publishes original scientific manuscripts addressing various issues in human rehabilitation, covering topics such as developmental rehabilitation, educative rehabilitation, communicative rehabilitation, cultural rehabilitation, medical rehabilitation, psychological rehabilitation, social rehabilitation, penology, and professional rehabilitation, among others (for more details, refer to our “About Us” page). Papers that diverge from journal topics will be rejected before external review (see policies page).

Manuscripts must offer both empirical and theoretical contributions to science, with analysis that demonstrates practical applications in theory and practice. Scientific debates and review articles will not be published unless they present a clearly defined research problem and offer suggestions for resolving it to enhance theory or practice. A key criterion for acceptance is the substantive contribution of the manuscript to theory or practice, clearly articulated at the end of the introduction section of the article.

After submission through the submission form, your article will be assigned a tracking ID that can be used to send any inquires via journal email and in special cases you can contact editorial staff.
