Wolters Kluwer and the education section of the APTA now offer the Journal of Physical Therapy Education online

Wolters Kluwer Heath, in partnership with the Education Section of the American Physical Therapy Association (APTA), will begin publishing the Journal of Physical Therapy Education (JOPTE) with online publication of the December 2017 issue.  JOPTE is the eighth APTA journal added to the Lippincott portfolio.

JOPTE moves to an online-only format beginning with the December issue. Readers can also expect expanded indexing and access to archived issues with more discoverability through Ovid. Highlights of the inaugural issue include:

  • An editorial from Co-editors Dr. Susan F. Wainwright and Dr. Kevin E. Brueilly discussing the direction of JOPTE
  • A look at the cost analysis of a student-run physical therapy clinic
  • Reflective narratives by student physical therapists on their clinical experiences
  • A case report examining linking essential core competencies to pediatric content in an entry-level physical therapy education curriculum 

“We are pleased to partner with Wolters Kluwer. Positioning JOPTE with Wolters Kluwer will enhance its quality and, with the inaugural digital issue, we welcome members and new readers to the improved JOPTE platform and the digitization of the entire publishing process,” said Gina Musolino, President, Education Section, APTA.

As new co-editors, Dr. Wainwright and Dr. Brueilly will leverage the substantial publishing resources of Wolters Kluwer to achieve their goals of taking JOPTE to the next level as an internationally recognized publication in education.

JOPTE joins a high-impact portfolio of physical therapy journals that includes Pediatric Physical Therapy, Journal of Neurologic Physical Therapy, Journal of Geriatric Physical Therapy, Journal of Women’s Health Physical Therapy, Journal of Acute Care Physical Therapy, Rehabilitation Oncology and Cardiopulmonary Physical Therapy Journal.

The full-featured website can be accessed on mobile devices. The new website also offers a streamlined electronic manuscript submission, review, and tracking process.
