All articles will be open access.  Let’s try to make this a very large research topic which attracts a lot of attention.  How to submit a paper? Click on „submit manuscript“ on this webpage http://journal.frontiersin.org/researchtopic/4725/towards-an-understanding-of-tinnitus-heterogeneity and select the journal. There are currently 18 Frontiers journals contributing to our research topic.

Ohne TitelFrom April 20-21, 2016, a group of about 20 experts from different disciplines came together in Herrsching/Munich for an international workshop on the use of modern smarthphone devices for the research on tinnitus. The topics covered a wide range of important subjects including data protection, research designs, data storage, the benefit for the patient, statistical analysis, ethics, technical details together with the most recent advancements and future research in order to improve our scientific understanding and the treatment for tinnitus patients.

comit logoThe tinnitus workgroup V for clinical outcome measures has developed a set of recommendations for designing and reporting clinical trials on tinnitus. These recommendations are intended not only for investigators designing and reporting clinical efficacy trials, but also for journal editors and journal reviewers who play an important role in the publication process.

The Neuroimaging Workgroup has developed a proposal for the standardisation of M/EEG procedures together with a questionnaire for tinnitus-related and tinnitus-unrelated thoughts during resting-state recordings. The proposal will be presented by Peyman Adjamian at the TRI/TINNET conference in Nottingham and is open for discussion.

Specials issue about TINNETA special issue about TINNET just appeared in the international magazine “ENT & Audiology News” with a series of articles about TINNET. The main focus of these articles is to showcase the recent activities of the EU COST Action TINNET programme across Europe, but tinnitus-related activity led by two key charities is also presented. Thanks a lot to Deborah Hall, who has guest-edited this special issue: ENT & Audiology News, 2016; 24 (6):p.71-100.

TINNET is a European research network funded from April 11, 2014 to April 10, 2018 by the COST program under the Action number BM1306.
