We are particularly excited to announce that CJOT now has an IMPACT FACTOR: according to the 2011 Journal Citation Reports, CJOT’s Journal Impact Factor is 0.908.
“This Impact Factor – which compares very favorably with other occupational therapy journals - reflects our commitment in publishing quality articles that provide a perspective on the research, science, and practice of occupational therapy,” says Janet Craik, Director of Professional Practice, Canadian Association of Occupational Therapists.
“Dr. Polatajko, Editor-in-Chief, adds, “we are very pleased with this factor, as a starting point. It provides clear evidence that CJOT is one of the top journals in the field!”
The Canadian Journal of Occupational Therapy was first published in September 1933. Since that time, it has fostered advancement and growth of research, theory and practice in occupational therapy. The mission of the journal is to advance excellence in occupational therapy research that informs education, practice and policy. The vision is to influence occupational therapy globally. Consistent with its mission and vision, the principal content of the journal is full-length empirical papers across the full range of methodologies (e.g., outcomes research, systematic reviews, meta-analyses, qualitative inquiries, psychometric research & policy analysis). Articles are published in the language of submission, with an abstract in French and English.
