European Journal of Pain

Aims & Scope

EJPThe European Journal of Pain (EJP) is the official journal of the European Pain Federation EFIC®. It is a multi-disciplinary, international journal that aims to be a global forum on all aspects of pain research and pain management. The journal publishes clinical and basic science research papers relevant to all aspects of pain and its management, including specialties such as anaesthesia, dentistry, neurology and neurosurgery, orthopaedics, palliative care, pharmacology, physiology, psychiatry, psychology and rehabilitation; socio-economic aspects of pain are also covered.

The journal publishes original clinical and basic science articles; reviews on pertinent topics not recently covered by other international journals. Full length articles and short communications will be accepted in the following fields: clinical studies and controlled observations, epidemiological studies, experimental studies on patients, healthy volunteers, animals and tissue preparations. Clinical case studies may be accepted if they are of particular scientific value. Letters to the Editor and Commentaries related to the content of the journal will also be published.
