Jan 5, Middlesex, U.K. – The journal Chiropractic and Osteopathy will be changing its name to Chiropractic and Manual Therapies in January 2011.
The journal Chiropractic and Osteopathy will be changing its name to Chiropractic and Manual Therapies in January 2011.
The change reflects the expanding numbers of fields from which practitioners are submitting work regarding manual therapies.
Chiropractic and Manual Therapies is a joint venture between BioMed Central and the European Academy of Chiropractic (EAC) – a subsidiary body of the European Chiropractic Union (ECU) – in association with the Chiropractic and Osteopathic College of Australasia (COCA). This online journal will continue to publish research abstracts from chiropractors but will also expand its base to include submission from a variety of other manual therapy practitioners, as well.
You can access the journal via www.chiromt.com and a link will also be available from both the EAC and ECU websites. In addition, if you register via the website (this is free), you can elect to receive a regular article alert to stay up-to-date with the latest content, either every time a new article is published or every 7, 14 or 30 days. You can also specify any particular areas of interest and alerts will be sent accordingly.
For those in the research field, this is an ideal opportunity to publish articles; all submitted manuscripts are overseen by a distinguished editorial board and tracked and indexed by PubMed within days of acceptance by the editors.
This open-access journal offers rapid communication of research findings around the world. To date, its most accessed article has received over 37,000 hits. It offers readers the opportunity to contact researchers via email and comment on the research. The EAC hopes that Chiropractic and Manual Therapies will promote chiropractic and manual therapy research and offer a fruitful inter-disciplinary platform.
