We're proud to announce that Journal of NeuroEngineering and Rehabilitation is ranked second in the rehabilitation category by Scopus in 2018.
Celebrating 15 years of publishing pioneering work at the intersection of engineering, neuroscience, and rehabilitation!
15 years ago Journal of NeuroEngineering and Rehabilitation published its first articles. After receiving its first impact factor in 2008, it has now developed to be the leading fully open access journal in the field of rehabilitation.
Join our anniversary celebrations by browsing through the journal’s milestone achievements, article and blog highlights, voices from the community, and by reading this Editorial from David Reinkensmeyer (Editor in Chief), reflecting on the current state in the field of neuroengineering and rehabilitation, how far it has come since the journal launched and where it could be headed in the future.

David Reinkensmeyer, Editor-in-Chief
David Reinkensmeyer is Professor in the Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering, the Department of Anatomy and Neurobiology, and the Department of Biomedical Engineering at University of California, Irvine. Prior to this, he received a B.S. degree in electrical engineering from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in electrical engineering from the University of California, Berkeley. He was a postdoctoral fellow then research assistant professor in the Sensory Motor Performance Program, Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago and Department of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, Northwestern University Medical School, before joining U.C Irvine in 1998. Prof. Reinkensmeyer's research interests include neuromuscular control, motor learning, robotics, and rehabilitation.
In 2019, David Reinkensmeyer was elected as fellow of American Institute for Medical and Biological Engineering (AIMBE) to recognize his innovative contributions to rehabilitation robotics and neural engineering, and for design of practical devices to enhance patient recovery.
