Researchers, patients and clinicians are invited to submit a manuscript for consideration in a special issue of WORK: A Journal of Prevention, Assessment and Rehabilitation (IOS Press), which will focus exclusively on the area of myalgic encephalomyelitis/chronic fatigue syndrome (ME/CFS). Submissions are due Sept. 13, 2019.

Scope

The focus of this special edition is to examine how the concept of work is redefined by the disease process of ME/CFS. Work is central to the identity and sense of competence of each individual, group and population (American Occupational Therapy Association, 2014).

Individuals living with ME/CFS have a unique perspective on work as a result of the challenges brought about by the disease. To shed light on this unique and particularly challenging relationship between ME/CFS and work, this issue will seek to investigate and demonstrate what “work” looks like from a biological to individual to community perspective.

Manuscripts are encouraged, but not exclusive, in the following areas:

Research of the disease process and biological effects

Studies identifying the disease burden on individual to society levels

Scientific reviews, therapeutic interventions, case studies, personal stories

Submission Format

A variety of presentation styles will be accepted:

  • Research and clinical papers (15-30 double spaced pages)
  • Literature reviews and surveys (20-30 double spaced pages)
  • Case studies (3-10 double spaced pages)

  1. Corresponding author’s name, phone, fax, email and mail address
  2. Title of paper
  3. Names and full affiliations of all authors
