Physiopedia now offers an open opportunity for you to publish your research.
The open and collaborative nature of Physiopedia offers an ideal opportunity for the publication of physiotherapy and physical therapy research, including work that might otherwise not get published. We are happy for you to publish your original research in Physiopedia, include a summary of your research prior to publication in a peer reviewed journal or to publish your student dissertation.
This is a great way of publicising student work, supporting new researchers and bridging the gap between completing research and publication. We welcome all types of research to be published in Physiopedia including randomised controlled trials, systematic reviews and meta-analyses, and case studies.
As a wiki which can be edited by physiotherapists and physical therapists from all over the world, Physiopedia lends itself as a good solution to open peer review of research. Each piece of research in Physiopedia has it’s own page, at the bottom of this page is a section for Physiopedia users to make comments and discuss the research.
