Editor's quote 2015
“The Journal of Headache and Pain policy keeps on following the line of innovation and continuity. Within the first semester of 2015 the submission of manuscripts competing for the 17th Edition of the Enrico Greppi Award will be systematized, thus creating the first topic for Open Thematic Series.
“A second Open Thematic Series, dedicated to Cluster Headache and Rare Headaches, will follow in the second semester of 2015. This group of headaches will be strongly focused since it has been overlooked in the past decade. The evident paralleled dichotomy between gender shift and lifestyle changes from one side, pain vehemence and the harmful invasive attempts from the other renders these headaches a unique ground worth to be re-evaluated.
“The Lead Guest Editor of these two maiden Open Thematic Series will be the President of the Society owning the Enrico Greppi Award for the first and the President of the European Headache Federation for the latter.
“I warmly welcome proposals for future Open Thematic Series.”
