Journal of Rehabilitation and Assistive Technologies Engineering (RATE) Collaboration

AGE-WELL is delighted to announce the continuing collaboration with the peer reviewed, open access journal, Journal of Rehabilitation and Assistive Technologies Engineering (RATE) published by SAGE PublishingThe journal is indexed in both PubMed Central and Web of Science and has an Impact Factor of 2.0.

JRATE is an interdisciplinary journal focusing on the engineering aspects and their practical applications of rehabilitation and assistive technologies. It covers engineering design, electrical engineering, mechanical engineering, engineering devices and their applications, robotics and biomedical engineering.

The journal is a vital contribution to the area of rehabilitation engineering and aimed at practitioners, clinicians, engineers and project managers and charities working with people with severe disabilities.

As part of this ongoing collaboration, AGE-WELL Network Investigators will benefit from the opportunity to submit their research to form part of a Special Collection in JRATE.

For full details on how to submit your paper to the journal, please refer to the JRATE Manuscript Submission Guidelines. Please indicate that the paper is to be considered for this Special Collection by selecting the “AGE-WELL Special Collection” upon submission. All papers will be peer-reviewed following the usual review process and criteria of JRATE.

Please note that if your paper is based on an abstract or poster presented at a conference, this should be acknowledged within the “Acknowledgements” section of your manuscript. E.g., “The findings within this paper were previously presented at AGE-WELL’s Annual Conference, Toronto 2023”.

“The AGE-WELL mission to set the agenda for developing technologies and services for healthy aging aligns perfectly with the focus of JRATE. Our partnership with AGE-WELL is an invaluable support for JRATE being recognised as a journal publishing high-quality research on significant developments in the field of rehabilitation and assistive technologies. We look forward to receiving submissions from AGE-WELL’s Network Investigators for this Special Collection.”
