The journal is published by BioMed Central, the publisher of 220 science, technology and medicine open access, online, peer-reviewed journals.

Chiropractic & Manual Therapies is a continuation of the title Chiropractic & Osteopathy (C&O). C&O was formerly known as Australasian Chiropractic & Osteopathy (AC0), previously published by the Chiropractic & Osteopathic College of Australasia (COCA).

Authors of articles published in Chiropractic & Manual Therapies are the copyright holders of their articles and have granted to any third party, in advance and in perpetuity, the right to use, reproduce or disseminate the article, according to the BioMed Central copyright and license agreement.

Article-processing charges

In open access publishing the publisher charges the authors for publication only after they have passed through a rigorous peer-review process. The publication costs for Chiropractic & Manual Therapies are covered by Chiropractic & Osteopathic College of Australasia (COCA) and the European Academy of Chiropractic (EAC), so authors do not need to pay an article-processing charge.

Publication and peer review process





Chiropractic & Manual Therapies publishes the following types of papers:

Research: reports of data from original research.

Reviews: comprehensive, authoritative, descriptions of any subject within the scope of the journal. These articles are usually written by opinion leaders that have been invited by the Editorial Board.

Case reports: reports of clinical cases that can be educational, describe a diagnostic or therapeutic dilemma, suggest an association, or present an important adverse reaction. It is important to note that case reports highlighting preventive or therapeutic intervention will, as a rule, not be published, because establishing the clinical merits of either requires stronger evidence.

Commentaries: short, focused and opinionated articles on any subject within the scope of the journal. These articles are usually related to a contemporary issue, such as recent research findings, and are often written by opinion leaders.

Database articles: describe a new database or a substantial improvement of an existing database.

Debate articles: present an argument that is not essentially based on practical research. Debate articles can report on all aspects of the subject including sociological and ethical aspects.

Hypotheses: short articles presenting an untested original hypothesis backed solely by previously published results rather than any new evidence.

Methodology articles: 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.

Short reports: brief reports of data from original research.

Study protocols: describe proposed or ongoing research, providing a detailed account of the hypothesis, rationale, and methodology of the study.

Systematic reviews: should be prepared in accordance with the PRISMA guidelines for systematic reviews. An additional file, linked from the Methods section, should reproduce all details concerning the search strategy. For an example of how a search strategy should be presented, see the Cochrane Reviewers' Handbook.

ChiroTouch to Host "Documentation—What Do They Want????????” Webinar with Bharon Hoag

San Diego, CA – October 25th, 2012 – ChiroTouch™, the nation's leader in chiropractic software, and Bharon Hoag are pleased to announce "Documentation—What Do They Want????????” webinar, which is scheduled to air live for one hour on November 1st, 2012, at 11:00am PST.

"It can be daunting for any chiropractor to navigate how claims are submitted and paid,” said Robert Moberg, President of ChiroTouch. "Mr. Hoag's webinar will provide the attendees with invaluable information that will help make the process much more clear and much easier to navigate.”

Join Bharon Hoag, executive director of The Ohio State Chiropractic Association. Over the last decade the claims payment systems have changed dramatically. We went from a system of you did it, they paid for it, to a you did it, but forced us to pay you. I hear you!

You might be wondering:
* How do providers spending time treating patients find time to understand what games are being played around them?
* How are providers supposed to function in an environment that is ever-changing and never includes them in the updates? Honestly, they are not. The only way to stay alive in this environment is to not play the game.

This one-hour webinar will help you understand why the environment is what it is today and how chiropractors can not only survive but begin to take control of their own world. You create a model where they need to conform to your method of communicating. Believe it or not, you as the provider hold more of the keys than you think you do.

Chiropractic software designed from the ground up to maximize efficiencies for virtually every process, including patient self check-in, scheduling, SOAP notes, billing, interoffice communication and more, ChiroTouch has developed its HIPAA-compliant system to drastically reduce the time it takes to perform tasks that chiropractors are already doing. That gives chiropractors more time to see more patients—resulting in increased referrals, improved efficiencies, and a direct, measurable impact on practice profitability.

Other recent webinar topics include ‘Art of the Close,' ‘Building Value in Your Practice and Equity in Your Business,' and ‘HITECH Stimulus Act Updates.' The ChiroTouch webinar programs and the attendees have benefited from speakers such as Dr. Patrick Gentempo, Dr. Bob Hoffman, Dr. Eric Plasker, Dr. Ron Oberstein, Dr. Mark Ott, Stanley Greenfield, and many more. This cross-section of the most influential and recognized coaches and speakers has made for a very robust and popular series of webinars.

Logan College President George Goodman to Retire in 2013
Press Release
Written by Thomas Keller   
Thursday, 18 October 2012 12:29
Dr. Goodman’s leadership resulted in significant accomplishments

(ST. LOUIS) – Logan College of Chiropractic/University Programs President George Goodman, D.C. announced today that he will retire as President by March 31, 2013. Dr. Goodman has led Logan for two decades and is responsible for growing enrollment, expanding programs and establishing an endowment and investment base of more than $25 million.

“I am honored to have been a part of Logan during such a dynamic period in this institution’s history,” said Dr. Goodman. “When we started two decades ago, the institution had significant debt and operating challenges. I was able to work with many talented people to deal with those issues, developing and growing Logan in ways that benefit our students, faculty and the surrounding community.”

Two years ago Dr. Goodman agreed to extend his stay as President from 2012 until 2014 in large part because a reaccreditation review was scheduled to occur in late 2014. It was important to both Dr. Goodman and Logan’s Board of Trustees to have an established leadership team in place when that evaluation and site visit took place. Recently, the reaccreditation process site visit was delayed until 2015. Because of that delay, Dr. Goodman shifted his retirement date to 2013. This transition plan ensures that a new President will be in place well before the reaccreditation process begins.

“President Goodman’s leadership has been invaluable to Logan, and his passion and commitment to our mission have been steadfast,” said Steven Roberts, Chair of the Board of Trustees. “On behalf of the board and Logan, I want to express our deep gratitude for his service and outstanding leadership. Logan and the field of chiropractic are better off because of Dr. Goodman.”

Under Dr. Goodman's guidance as President since 1993, Logan College has achieved several significant milestones, including reaching debt-free status; enrolling 1,000 students for the first time in the school's history; and winning federal grants for infrastructure, technology and research.

Before being appointed President, Dr. Goodman served for 10 years as Logan's Vice President of Chiropractic Affairs and also held the posts of Clinic Director and Dean of the School of Postgraduate Education at Logan. A tenured professor, Dr. Goodman has been a member of the Logan faculty for 44 years and spent 20 years in private chiropractic practice.

Logan College President George Goodman to Retire in 2013/Add One/October 18, 2012

The Board of Trustees will appoint a committee to conduct a nationwide search for the next President of Logan. That search will be focused on identifying candidates who will help Logan continue as a leader in the field of chiropractic education and related graduate level programs.

About Logan College of Chiropractic/University Programs

Since 1935, Logan College of Chiropractic/University Programs has been preparing students to enter the health care marketplace to become successful Doctors of Chiropractic. To fulfill individual professional goals, Logan also offers its students, graduates and other professionals a choice of two academic master’s programs – a Master of Science in Sports Science and Rehabilitation, and an online and on-campus Master of Science in Nutrition and Human Performance. Other program offerings include an Accelerated Science Program to help students complete their basic science coursework at an accelerated pace and two undergraduate programs – A Bachelor of Science Degree in Human Biology and a Bachelor of Science Degree in Life Science.
