Throughout this challenging year, the American Journal of Occupational Therapy (AJOT) has stayed committed to publishing high-quality research so that occupational therapy professionals can make informed decisions about best practice. As we look to the future with a new Editor-in-Chief, our goals are to remain the leading journal for our profession while enhancing our engagement with readers, improving our review process, and ensuring that a diverse group of reviewers and associate editors are able to assume leadership positions with the journal.
Revise review forms to make the review process more expedient and align critiques with standard evaluation tools
Recruit new official reviewers who are demographically diverse and who have expertise in content or methods currently lacking in our review panel
Solicit manuscripts in the areas of health services research; diversity, equity, and inclusion issues; occupational justice; and original research on the effectiveness of interventions that are important to the profession yet underrepresented in our journal
Update the AJOT website and possibly transition to a new platform that will allow for more features and user engagement.
