About the journal
The journal informs of developments in occupational therapy practice and research, theoretical inquiry, professional and consumer issues, policy development and ethical questions. The NZJOT serves as a forum for the introduction and scrutiny of new research, and the critique of existing research.
Aims and scope
We invite practitioners, researchers, teachers, students and users of services to submit manuscripts that provide a forum to discuss or debate issues relevant to occupational therapy. These will be peer reviewed by the editorial review board, and, if accepted, will be published in a timely manner.
We publish a range of articles such as theoretical articles, case reports, reports on therapeutic programme, consumers’ voices, research articles, resources reviews and viewpoint articles, articles related to ethical issues and Maori/Pacific Islanders (New Zealand indigenous people) issues.
