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. The charge for case reports, brief reports and letters remains only $350.

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 PubMed Central. 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.
