The Canadian Journal of Occupational Therapy (CJOT)
The Canadian Journal of Occupational Therapy was first published in September 1933. Since that time, it has fostered advancement and growth in occupational therapy scholarship. The mission of the journal is to provide a forum for leading-edge occupational therapy scholarship that advances theory, practice, research, and policy. The vision is to be a high-quality scholarly journal that is at the forefront of the science of occupational therapy and a destination journal for the top scholars in the field, globally. Consistent with its mission and vision, the principal content of the journal depicts empirical findings and theoretical/conceptual arguments pertaining to occupation-based, client-centred enablement with relevance to Canadian occupational therapy practitioners. The majority of the papers present full-length empirical studies across the full range of methodologies. Registered RCT protocols and theoretical papers and conceptual reviews that provide a new and critical perspective on a topic of relevance to occupation-based, client-centred practice are also encouraged. The journal also publishes brief reports presenting preliminary empirical findings or theoretical/conceptual arguments that have the potential to inform future research in occupational therapy. Letters to the editor that encourage critical discussions on topics published within, or are of relevance to, CJOT are encouraged. Book reviews and invited commentaries are published on occasion. As CJOT is an English/French bilingual journal, articles are published in the language of submission with the title, key words, and abstract translated into the other language.
