About this event

Getting research findings disseminated is a critical step in the research process. It is also the means of sharing learning so others can build on and/or implement what was discovered. The ultimate goal is to improve practice so people who receive occupational therapy have the best possible experience and outcome.

Like most scientific disciplines, occupational therapy continues to use peer reviewed publication as the avenue for sharing findings of research studies. However, this can be daunting task and researchers can experience a wide variety of challenges along the way to completing it. Over time, with each experience, researchers develop ways to get around these challenges and grow in confidence. Key to this is understanding the peer review process and interpreting feedback on the submitted paper.

The ROTOS strategic plan (https://www.rotosfoundation.eu/2020/11/29/strategic-plan/) includes a number of objectives that would be advanced by an increase in the extent of research dissemination. With this in mind we have arranged this online event. Two members of The ROTOS Foundation Board will share tips on their experience publishing their work. Additionally, we will have two Editors from Occupational Therapy Journals - Dr Caroline Hills from the Irish Journal of Occupational Therapy (https://www.emeraldgrouppublishing.com/journal/ijot) and Professor Anita Björklund Carlstedt of the Scandinavian Journal of Occupational Therapy (https://www.tandfonline.com/toc/iocc20/current) . Both will share their tips on how to overcome the common obstacles to getting published and successfully navigating the road to publication.
