Update: Due to the growing number of publications, TOHM was able to lower the full-length article-processing fee from $750 to $650 as of September 2014.

From the Editor

Tremor and Other Hyperkinetic Movements (TOHM) [ISSN: 2160-8288], a fully open access peer-reviewed journal, publishes clinical and scientific papers on tremor and hyperkinetic movements. TOHM is indexed in PubMed, and all published articles are submitted to PubMed Central on behalf of the authors immediately following publication. In contrast to other publications focusing on disorders of hypokinesia (i.e., mainly Parkinson’s disease), TOHM emphasizes the non-Parkinsonian movement disorders, giving center stage to clinical observations and research in this area. In doing so, the journal aims to provide an international platform for experts and specialists in the field of hyperkinetic movements.

Rapid Turnaround Time

A short turnaround time from submission to publication of 4.5 weeks is possible, but is dependent upon the speed with which an author revises their manuscript. The average turnaround time from submission to first decision is 22 days (~3 weeks). The average turnaround time from acceptance to publication is 21 days (3 weeks).
