The Open Journal of Occupational Therapy (OJOT) is a peer-reviewed, open-access journal with a mission to publish high quality articles that focus on applied research, practice, and education in the occupational therapy profession. Access OJOT here, follow us on Facebook, Twitter and ResearchGate and connect with us on LinkedIn.
OJOT's design as an open-access, electronic scholarly journal is intended to benefit the following parties:
- Authors: of such articles, who will see their papers more read, more cited, and better integrated into the structure of science- Academic readers: in general institutions that cannot afford the journal or where the journal is out of scope- Researchers: who will have their research published in a timely manner and disseminated to a large audience- Readers: in general, who may be interested in occupational therapy and have better access- The general public: who will have the opportunity to see what occupational therapy is about- Taxpayers: who will see the results of the research they pay for- Patients: and the therapists caring for them, who will be able to keep abreast of the latest research
The Open Journal of Occupational Therapy is published through Western Michigan University's (WMU) Department of Occupational Therapy (OT) in the College of Health and Human Services. The OT Department is the first and oldest non-teacher education program at WMU and the highest ranking OT program in Michigan by US News and World Report. Since 1922, the WMU OT program has been a leader and innovator in the field and our graduates have made significant contributions through the nation and the world.
