The first rehabilitation journal in independent Slovenia was Gib (Movement), which was published from 1992 to2001 at the University Rehabilitation Institute in Ljubljana. The name of the journal changed and its scope broadened in 2002, when the first issue of Rehabilitacija (Rehabilitation) was published.
Since then, 8 volumes with 16 issues (some of them double) have been published with an increasing share of papers in English by (co-)authors from other countries. Almost 300 papers have been published so far, mostly (but not only) from the field of neurological and musculoskeletal rehabilitation.
The official Aims and Scope define Rehabilitation as a national and international scientific and professional journal that publishes peer-reviewed papers from all fields related to rehabilitation. It is intended for health professionals, researchers, undergraduate and graduate students, and general public interested in physical and rehabilitation medicine, assessment of functioning and outcomes in rehabilitation, rehabilitation nursing, vocational rehabilitation, physiotherapy, occupational therapy, rehabilitation psychology, special education, social work for community health, enviromental factors of inclusion, assistive technologies, rehabilitation engineering, sports and other related fields and issues.
Proceedings from the most important traditional rehabilitation professional meeting are published as supplements to the journal. In 2009, lectures from the 20th Rehabilitation Days entitled Rehabilitation in the Future were published in this form; in 2010, we will have the 21st Rehabilitation Days entitled Evidence Based Rehabilitation.
The editorial board of Rehabilitation (Ljubljana), as the journal is now officially called in English, is composed of renowned experts from different professions from Slovenia and abroad. Full text of all articles since 2008, together with detailed information about the journal, is freely available online in Slovenian and English version on the website http://ibmi.mf.uni-lj.si/rehabilitacija/
