Going Online

From January 2017 the Irish Journal of Occupational Therapy will be published by Emerald Publishing Services Ltd. (

This will bring about a number of changes.

It is also note worthy that the Journal will be open access. This will mean that the work published in IJOT will be more widely read and cited which will help in our long term goal of getting an Impact Factor.  More importantly, Irish occupational therapy practice will be disseminated to our International peers.  

The significant step of joining Emerald could not have been achieved without the support of our Association and the current Chairperson and Council members, sincere thanks to them.
