Maney Publishing is to publish International Musculoskeletal Medicine in 2008 on behalf of the Society of Orthopaedic Medicine (SOM) and the British Institute of Musculoskeletal Medicine (BIMM).

International Musculoskeletal Medicine, formerly the Journal of Orthopaedic Medicine, is undergoing an exciting re-launch which will introduce the Editorial Manager online submission and refereeing system; an updated journal design; and see the extension of the journal's scope to include all aspects of musculoskeletal medicine, including manual therapy and manual medicine.

International Musculoskeletal Medicine publishes peer-reviewed research and review papers about pain and dysfunction in the musculoskeletal system. It wishes to encourage better treatment by improving the evidence base for best practice. To encourage better understanding of musculoskeletal pain and dysfunction, it publishes papers dealing with its causation and the mechanisms underlying chronicity as well as the mechanisms for obtaining satisfactory relief.

The Journal's Editor, Dr Richard Ellis, of Wessex Rehabilitation District Hospital, Salisbury, UK, welcomes the new publishing agreement: "This is an exciting opportunity for International Musculoskeletal Medicine to widen its scope to a greater audience and develop the achievements of the Journal of Orthopaedic Medicine. We are looking forward to developing online access to ensure the journal is a vital resource for the healthcare community."

Caitlin Meadows, Managing Editor of Maney's healthcare titles, is also enthusiastic: "The re-launch of the journal brings it alongside the leading publications in the field of musculoskeletal medicine in disseminating vital current research to academics and the healthcare profession."

International Musculoskeletal Medicine is important to all who are interested in the scientific basis for the best and most cost effective non-surgical relief of musculoskeletal pain, especially by manual, exercise and injection therapies whether from the medical, physiotherapy, osteopathic or chiropractic professions.

The journal will be added to the Maney Online Research E-journals collection in 2008, which includes the MORE Healthcare collection. This collection features peer-reviewed international healthcare titles, providing high quality, evidence-based and clinically-orientated research papers to professionals around the world.

The Society of Orthopaedic Medicine was formed in 1979 to promote the theory and practice of orthopaedic medicine in the accurate diagnosis of lesions of the musculoskeletal system, and a non-surgical method of treatment for soft tissue lesions. Membership consists of approximately 1700 doctors and physiotherapists. For more information please visit http://www.somed.org (http://www.somed.org/).

The British Institute of Musculoskeletal Medicine was formed in l992 by an amalgamation of the British Association of Manipulative Medicine and the Institute of Orthopaedic Medicine. It exists to promote education and research in the science and art of musculoskeletal medicine for the ultimate benefit of the public.
