The 2015 EHF Christmas Meeting on CGRP & Headache
The first EHF Christmas Meeting will be held in Athens, focused on CGRP & Headache exclusively, in association with the Hellenic Headache Society. During the international forum the latest research advancements on headache will be reviewed, including workshops on further understanding the prevention and treatment of migraine and cluster headache. Established scientists of the European and International Community will present their work on CGRP pathways that change headache therapeutics essentially.
Lectures, round tables discussions and workshops are included in the scientific program.
Sapienza University of Rome has activated its 13th edition of the Master's Degree in Headache Medicine, for the Academic Year 2015-2016. Find out more.
Editor's Note 2015
The news worth of sharing is the release of the Impact Factor 2014 by JCR that showed a realignment to the previous values, 2.801.
Many evaluations can be done, but I will focus on two points: in this awesome roller-coaster TJHP has maintained the second position between the area journals dedicated to headache. The Gaussian curve of citations shows an absence of monoclonal peaks. This means that the 2014 IF value is not supported by a strong major pillar but from many small ones, a predictive sign of a diffuse good performance and a low risk of falls in the next windows of evaluations by JCR. The low percentage of self-citations supports this critical analysis.
Innovative interesting initiatives are in the pipeline and we will be able to confirm our competitors’ attitude shortly.
We have overcome the phases of animosity, astonishment, fondness. It is now time to strengthen the feeling of respect.

EFIC-EHF-LTB Joint Campaign against Headache
The EFIC has created a task force on headache, aiming to face through the European Joint Campaign against Headache the problems connected to the shared research, the multidisciplinary treatment of borderline forms and the shared education.
The Joint Campaign against Headache is promoted by EFIC, EHF and LTB through the action of Task Force on Headache and seeks to increase the value of headache global impact, research and education.
