Journal of Physiotherapy

Official Journal of the Australian Physiotherapy Association

Journal of Physiotherapy is the official journal of the Australian Physiotherapy Association. The Editorial Board's mission is to publish significant research which has important implications for physiotherapy (also known as physical therapy). Our vision is for the journal to be the pre-eminent international publication of the science and practice of physiotherapy.

In January 2008 Journal of Physiotherapy became the first physiotherapy journal to conform to the ICMJE requirement wherein randomised trials are registered with a recognised Trial Registry.

In January 2014 the journal also became the first core physiotherapy / physical therapy journal to make Editorials and peer-reviewed original research freely-available.

Editor: A/Prof. Mark Elkins PhD, MHSc, BA, BPhty
