The Hong Kong Journal of Occupational Therapy (HKJOT) is the official publication of the Hong Kong Occupational Therapy Association. Its aim is to promote the development of theory and practice in occupational therapy, and to facilitate documentation and communication among educators, researchers and practitioners in the field. The Journal also works to advance availability, use, support and excellence of occupational therapy on behalf of the Association to the public, and maintain professional standards to promote better understanding of occupational therapy.

The HKJOT welcomes:

  • Review articles—we accept systematic reviews or meta-analyses of new and updated assessments and interventions in occupational therapy.
  • Original articles—we accept studies about occupational therapy instrument development and testing, surveillances of occupational dysfunction, occupational therapy student and graduate opinion surveys, efficacy and effectiveness of occupational therapy interventions in the form of preliminary single group studies to multicentre randomized controlled trials, as well as basic science research.
  • Case reports—we accept creative designs of assistive devices to innovative and new treatments of rare dysfunctions with detailed documentation in the form of a clinical note or case report.
  • Position papers and statements—we accept discussions of professional, political, ethical or social issues that impact clients' welfare, and the role and practice of occupational therapy in Hong Kong, Mainland China and other countries in Asia-Pacific.
  • Commentaries—we accept commentaries on contemporary professional and research issues in occupational therapy, new concepts, theories and models of occupational therapy frameworks, and cultural dialogue on the applications of occupational therapy particularly in the Asian context.
  • Letters to the Editor—we accept constructive comments concerning previously published HKJOT articles, interesting cases that do not meet the requirement of being truly exceptional, short letters on significant preliminary clinical data and other communications of general interest.
  • Book reviews

– Original
– Ethically sound
– Important and leading to an impact on the occupational therapy profession
– Conflicts of interest are declared
– Financial and grant support are listed
