Reviews are summaries of recent insights in specific research areas within the scope of Fisio Mu Physiotherapy Evidences. The key aims of reviews are to provide systematic and substantial coverage of a research area of wide interest or to present a critical assessment of a specified area. A review must focus on recent research and on a topic that is timely and relevant to the field. All reviews published by Fisio Mu Physiotherapy Evidences are peer-reviewed. Review manuscripts may be considered at the Editor’s discretion, and their decision on consideration is considered final.



These short, narrowly focused manuscripts of contemporary interest are usually commissioned by the journal. They are not mini reviews. A commentary is a discussion of a manuscript or trial that was recently published or that is soon to be published and that is interesting enough to warrant further comment or explanation. This type of commentary discusses specific issues within a subject area rather than the whole field, explains the implications of the manuscript, and puts it in context. Opinions are welcome as long as they are factually based.



Methodology manuscripts should present a new experimental method, test, or procedure. The method described may either be completely new or may offer a better version of an existing method or compare different methods currently in use.



Opinions are short, narrowly focused manuscripts on issues of contemporary interest, including reports about meetings or viewpoints on recently published manuscripts relevant to the readers of Fisio Mu Physiotherapy Evidences. Opinions should not be reviews and should not contain new data. They should be short manuscripts (ideally 500-1500 words) outlining significant progress in thinking that would also be testable, though not so easily testable that readers will wonder why the testing has not already been done.



Editorials are written by the Editor-in-Chief and discuss current issues and related subjects.
