Focus and Scope

The journal "Rehabilitace a fyzikální lékařství" focuses on presenting results of research studies and theoretical studies from the field of rehabilitation and physical medicine. The scope of the journal covers topics related to diagnostics, therapy, biomechanics, exercise physiology, public health, etc. The journal also welcomes submissions that present results of interdisciplinary research.

Peer Review Process

After receiving the submission, the managing editors check the submission and decide whether it is in compliance with the requirements stated in author guidelines and whether it fits within the scope of the journal.

To ensure the integrity of the blind peer-review for submissions to this journal, every effort should be made to prevent the identities of the authors and reviewers from being known to each other.

The following criteria are always considered for each submission in the peer-review process:

  • ethical aspects

  • originality of the work

  • importance of the information

  • clarity and comprehensibility of the text

  • appropriateness of the methods

  • interpretation of the results
