Archives of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation Cover Image

Archives of Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation (Archives) is the acclaimed international journal of ACRM covering the specialty of physical medicine and rehabilitation and allied disciplines.

Original articles report important trends and deliver authoritative information on the therapeutic utilization of physical behavioral and pharmaceutical agents in providing comprehensive care for individuals with chronic illness and disabilities.

According to the 2016 Journal Citation Reports just released, the Impact Factor for Archives increased by 19 percent over the previous year to 3.289. This is the 13th increase in 14 years, making Archives fifth out of 65 journals in the Rehabilitation category and 9th out of 82 in the Sports Sciences category. It also has the highest Impact Factor of all general Rehabilitation journals that are not discipline- or condition-specific.

With 20,674 lifetime citations, Archives is by far the most cited journal in Rehabilitation.

The Archives editors thank all of our authors, reviewers, editorial board members, and editorial office staff, and congratulate everyone on our shared success!

Archives Elite Reviewers 2017

The Editorial Board congratulates the Archives’ 2017 Elite Reviewers. The designation of Elite Reviewer reflects the number, timeliness and quality of reviews contributed to the Archives as judged by the editors. We would not have achieved recognition as a leading rehabilitation journal and been able to contribute to the scientific literature without the dedicated support of our reviewers. Thank you for your many contributions to the peer review process.
