25 Articles on Pain – Free to Read
A SCOPUS review was recently conducted for research articles and reviews on the search terms “Work AND Pain” for the years 2008-2017. This search covered title, abstracts and key words and excluded any type of conference proceedings. 19,501 of which 16,512 were research articles and 2,989 reviews were published in our journal, WORK.
There is a significant upward trend over the last nine years in the number of documents published on the topic in WORK. To date (June 2018), an additional 1,174 documents have been published. We are honored that WORK has published more pain-related articles than any of the ‘recognized’ pain journals.
In conjunction with the upcoming special issue of WORK (61:3) devoted to work and pain, we are delighted to make available free to read, a special collection of 25 articles on pain that have previously been published in WORK. We hope this will help you to advance your knowledge in this important topic.
