Anita Björklund Carlstedt is Senior Professor in Occupational Therapy at Jönköping University, School of Health and Welfare, Jönköping, Sweden. She has been Editor-in-Chief for Scandinavian Journal of Occupational Therapy since 2013.
“We are so excited SJOT finally transforms to Open Access (OA). This opens great opportunities for researchers in occupational therapy and occupational science to share their findings to occupational therapists all around the world.
OA brings unexpected opportunities for knowledge exchange and growth among occupational therapists regardless of which country they practice.“
Ida Kåhlin is senior lecturer in occupational therapy at Linköping University, Sweden. She is president of the Swedish Association of Occupational Therapists and chair of the Scandinavian Journal of Occupational Therapy Foundation.
“We want to promote evidence-based occupational therapy worldwide. The transition to Open Access means that all occupational therapists can have access to the latest research published in our journal, no matter where they are situated in the world.
This not only means that dissemination of the latest knowledge will increase but also, hopefully, implemented in clinical practice.“
