At the end of 2014, the American Journal of Occupational Therapy (AJOT) will change editors, and I will retire from this position after 6 years of serving the journal. In that time, the journal has changed considerably and made many advances. In this editorial, I outline those advances and make recommendations for the journal’s future editorship.
In the past 5 years, the journal has consistently received more than 200 yearly submissions and published more than 86 articles per volume through 6 yearly issues (Table 1). Increasingly, many of its articles have been published in an online-only format to reduce publication costs and increase publication space.
