SpringerPlus Headache and Pain Collection
Wednesday 12th of August 2015, a new editorial platform dedicated to headache and pain was born: SpringerPlus has in fact activated a new Collection dedicated to this discipline.
SpringerPlus is a scientific journal of interdisciplinary and generalist nature, divided into sections and disciplines. Every section or discipline has its independent editorial structure and each one is assigned to single Editors since there is no Editor-in-Chief.
SpringerPlus Headache and Pain Collection has two Editors, Paolo Martelletti for the Headache field and Maria Adele Giamberardino for the Pain one.
Their activities as Editor-in-Chief of The Journal of Headache and Pain (2004-2015) the first and Editor-in-Chief of the International Association for the Study of Pain (IASP) Press (2010-2015) the latter have been evaluated as solid basis of expertise for the conception and the management of this new project.
SpringerPlus Headache and Pain Collection is the Sister Journal of The Journal of Headache and Pain.
SpringerPlus is now listed in ISI WoS and will receive its first Impact Factor in JCR in June 2016. This will benefit all the manuscript published in the Headache and Pain Collection.
