March 2011 marked the 1-year anniversary of the American Journal of Occupational Therapy’s (AJOT’s) online submission, peer review, and publication process. The journal now publishes six issues (available online and in print) and one online supplemental issue reserved for American Occupational Therapy Association (AOTA) official documents. This publication format provides the space to publish approximately 80–90 articles per volume, about 10–15 more than in past volumes (Table 1). In the past 3 years, AJOT’s acceptance rate has decreased; increased submissions have allowed greater selectivity and, therefore, higher quality of published articles (see Table 1).

Practice Areas
Most studies over the past 4 years have addressed two primary practice areas: (1) rehabilitation, disability, and participation and (2) children and youth. Research addressing productive aging, mental health, and work and industry has consistently been lacking. The dearth of research in these practice areas has become particularly problematic as the profession increasingly competes for service reimbursement with professionals who are producing research evidence supporting their own services in domains traditionally considered to fall within occupational therapy (Padilla, 2011b; Snodgrass, 2011b; Wolf, 2011). Similarly, as the U.S. population ages, we have not produced sufficient research demonstrating the profession’s contribution to productive aging, and we risk losing our status as approved providers of services designed to maintain the health and quality of life of older adults—a situation that may parallel our lost status as approved providers of mental health services in many states. Research articles in 2010 and 2011 began to break this trend with the publication of special issues addressing driving safety and mobility in elderly clients and the effectiveness of occupational therapy services for clients with Alzheimer’s disease, mental health disabilities, and work-related injuries (Tables 2 and 3).

Research Type
A similar imbalance can be seen in the types of research published in the journal. The number of studies examining intervention effectiveness has steadily increased, with a large peak in 2011 (see Tables 2 and 3), and basic research, which has tended to examine general disability experiences rather than occupational therapy practice questions, has declined in comparison. Research establishing the psychometric properties of occupational therapy instruments has remained strong, and the rigor of experimental design, demonstrated by level of evidence (based on the American Occupational Therapy Association [AOTA] Evidence-Based Practice Project; Lieberman & Scheer, 2002), has steadily increased (see Tables 2 and 3). The profession has not made sufficient advances, however, in the examination of practice efficiency—research that examines whether a specific intervention is safe and cost and time efficient and whether it promotes patient adherence and satisfaction.
To compete with fellow health care professionals encroaching on the profession’s practice domain and to maintain (and regain) our status as approved providers in traditional and newly emerging practice areas, it is imperative that the profession increase its efforts in the following three areas: (1) generating more research in the practice areas of productive aging, mental health, and work and industry; (2) examining intervention effectiveness and efficiency across all practice areas; and (3) producing research with high levels of experimental rigor that can be more meaningfully interpreted and generalized.
Impact Factor
AJOT’s impact factor (IF) score has steadily increased in the past 4 years. The IF reflects the number of times published articles are cited in other articles and thus is an indicator of a journal’s influence in the field. After maintaining an average 2-year score of 0.641 from 1999 to 2007, AJOT’s IF showed a large increase beginning in 2008. AJOT, the Australian Occupational Therapy Journal (AOTJ), the Scandinavian Journal of Occupational Therapy, and the Occupational Therapy Journal of Research are currently the only occupational therapy journals that have IF scores. When authors of articles published in these journals cite each other’s work, the IF for all four journals can increase. AJOT’s increasing IF score may reflect the larger number of articles published in each volume, the shorter acceptance-to-publication time (i.e., research is disseminated and cited more quickly), and the increasing quality of research articles published (Table 4).

Research Funding
Research funding is one indication of the scientific community’s acknowledgment of occupational therapy research contributions. Table 5 provides funding source data for research articles published in AJOT from 2009 to 2011. Although the percentage of funded research in each year has remained relatively constant, the percentage of studies receiving National Institutes of Health (NIH), other federal, or U.S. foundation funding peaked in 2011. The joint American Occupational Therapy Foundation (AOTF) and AOTA research agenda (AOTF & AOTA, n.d.) can guide occupational therapy researchers in aligning their own research trajectories with those of the NIH, other federal funders, and foundation funders (see Table 5).

Future Goals
Over the past 4 years, AJOT has advanced in the following five ways: (1) The number of research studies with higher levels of experimental rigor has increased; (2) the number of research studies addressing intervention effectiveness has increased; (3) more research has addressed the practice areas of productive aging, mental health, and work and industry; (4) the IF steadily increased after remaining stagnant for almost a decade; and (5) the number of published articles per volume has increased, allowing more occupational therapy researchers to be published in the journal. To maintain and further expand these advances, the following goals will be pursued:
  1. The journal’s current publication goals will be maintained, and priority will continue to be given to studies examining the effects of occupational therapy practice, including the following:

    • Intervention effectiveness studies, systematic reviews, and meta-analyses

    • Efficiency studies assessing interventions for such things as patient satisfaction, adherence, safety, and cost and time efficiency

    • Studies establishing the psychometric properties of occupational therapy instruments

    • Studies linking occupational engagement to participation and health status indicators

    • Articles exploring a currently debated topical or professional issue (The Issue Is articles).

  2. Special issues will be planned to address the need for evidence in all practice areas, with emphasis on productive aging and mental health, and will be developed in collaboration with information from the AOTA Evidence-Based Practice Project. Special issues in preparation include

    • Effectiveness of Occupational Therapy Services for Children With Autism

    • Effectiveness of Occupational Therapy Services Addressing Fall Prevention for Older Adults

    • Effectiveness of Occupational Therapy Services for Clients With Low Vision

    • Effectiveness of Occupational Therapy Services for Clients With Neurodegenerative Diseases

    • Effectiveness of Occupational Therapy Services for Children With Behavioral and Psychosocial Needs.

  3. The following efforts will be continued to monitor and increase the journal’s IF score:

    • All submitted articles will be considered with regard to how widely they are likely to be cited.

    • Systematic reviews, meta-analyses, and randomized controlled trials will be prioritized, because these types of studies tend to be more heavily cited.

    • Efforts will be made to decrease the acceptance-to-publication length, which is currently at 14 mo. In the future, publication ahead of print will be available, further decreasing the acceptance-to-publication length.

    • A long-term goal will be the reduction of print issues and an increase in online issues, which will potentially increase the number of articles published per volume.
