The Irish Journal of Occupational Therapy (IJOT) is the official journal of the Association of Occupational Therapists of Ireland. On a biannual basis, IJOT publishes quality articles that further debate and evidence-based practice within occupational therapy, both in Ireland and abroad.
The aim of the Irish Journal of Occupational Therapy is to contribute and stimulate critical debate and evidence-based practice by disseminating research findings, expert opinion, theoretical arguments and developments within clinical practice and professional education in Ireland and internationally.
The journal will publish original articles that will add to the knowledge base within occupational therapy and further evidence-based practice and critical debate within the profession.
The journal contributes to theory, practice, education, research and professional developments within occupational therapy. Theoretical papers, qualitative, quantitative and mixed methods research studies and systematic reviews are equally welcome. Practice reports of innovative service developments and short papers appraising the evidence base for specific interventions will also be considered for publication.
In order to link theory, practice and research the Editorial Board encourages authors to include a description of how theory informs research and/or practice developments.
In addition to submissions from experienced researchers, academics and practitioners, the Editorial Board welcomes short, high-quality submissions based upon work undertaken as part of pre-registration occupational therapy education. Research underpinned by a range of epistemologies (including qualitative, quantitative and mixed methods approaches) is equally welcome.
Submissions are only accepted if the content has not been published or submitted for publication elsewhere and will be subjected to a blind peer review process.
