The American Journal of Occupational Therapy (AJOT) remains the most highly ranked occupational therapy journal, as measured by its journal impact factor. AJOT’s goals are to remain occupational therapy’s leading research journal, publish high-quality research that reflects the breadth of research related to occupational therapy, and have disciplinary and interdisciplinary impact.
Improve the review process.
Locate additional official AJOT reviewers, particularly those with expertise in topic areas that are not well represented in our current list of reviewers. We particularly need reviewers with expertise in specific methodologies such as survey research, complex statistical methods, clinical trials, systematic reviewing, single-subject designs, and Rasch analysis.
Increase the efficiency of Editorial Board processes to reduce the time between review completion and decisions on manuscripts.
Make a successful transition to a new AJOT editor-in-chief, who will have a 3-year term beginning in July 2020.
Evaluate the success of the move to an online-only platform.
