Future of Canadian Pain Research: Highlighting Trainee Contributions

Canada is one of the most productive countries in the world when it comes to pain research. Canadian scientists and clinicians have not only greatly impacted knowledge generation in the field of pain but have also contributed in important ways to the training of highly qualified trainees. Maintaining Canada’s reputation for research excellence is in part dependent on the innovation and productivity of our trainees, the next generation of Canadian pain researchers.  The Canadian Journal of Pain Special Issue on the Future of Canadian Pain Research: Highlighting Trainee Contributions will profile cutting-edge pain research conducted by trainees affiliated with Canadian institutions.

The Special Issue is soliciting original research led by trainees from all disciplines involved in the study of pain, including the clinical and basic sciences, epidemiology, health policy and health systems, and implementation science. The work reported must be technically sound, innovative, and unique, advancing the state of the field under study.

Manuscripts will be considered if they involve original pain research from human or animal participants.  Quantitative or qualitative studies, experiments, pilot studies, randomized clinical trials, cross-sectional studies, as well as case series will be considered. Study protocols and reviews will not be accepted. Manuscripts should be no longer than 3,500 words. The first author must be, or have been, a trainee who was engaged in full-time studies when the research was conducted. The trainee’s supervisor or advisor must be among the authors. A cover letter, co-signed by the trainee and supervisor, must be submitted, identifying the manuscript as a submission for the Special Issue and attesting to the fact that the trainee was in full-time studies when the research was conducted.

Timeline: Call for papers will be open between October 2021 and July 2022. Publication of the Special Issue is expected in the Fall 2022.
