Rehabilitation Oncology now published by Wolters Kluwer

The leading resource for cancer physical therapy and rehabilitation professionals, Rehabilitation Oncology, official journal of the Oncology Section of the American Physical Therapy Association (APTA), commences a publishing partnership with Wolters Kluwer with the January 2016 issue.

Rehabilitation Oncology becomes the seventh APTA section journal published by Wolters Kluwer. “We think that Section members and all oncology physical therapists will benefit from the significant enhancements to Rehabilitation Oncology and, even more important, the utility and accessibility of the evidence for practice published in the journal,” comments Editor-in-Chief Lucinda (Cindy) Pfalzer, PT, PhD, FACSM, FAPTA.

Oncology Section members and subscribers will continue to receive Rehabilitation Oncology on its quarterly publication schedule, with the print edition featuring an attractive and streamlined design. In addition, readers will find an upgraded journal website, located at Once registered, individual and institutional subscribers will be able to access the full contents of the journal—including the ability to search, read, and “favorite” any article, all the way back to the first issue in 1984.
