It includes original papers, reader-friendly study summaries, university degree and research group communications, event reports, calendar of events, and book reviews. One of the aims of the journal is to support the academization of the profession in Germany, Austria and Switzerland. The German-language publications of university and research papers show which topics occupational therapy currently addresses and encourage readers from practice, teaching and research to exchange ideas and discuss discourse. The original papers undergo a double blinded peer review process. An international editorial team consisting of eight occupational therapists ensures the scientific quality and timeliness of the articles. The team receives support from an international scientific advisory board, currently consisting of 26 occupational therapists." (Schulz-Kirchner-Verlag, transl.)
Journal of Occupational Science

  • Contents: "The Journal of Occupational Science publishes articles that build understanding of occupation, which is understood to be a complex biological, cultural, spiritual, temporal, political, and historically situated phenomenon. Humans are viewed as occupational beings, who shape themselves and are shaped through their singular and shared occupations, in transaction with their society, culture, and environment.

    Occupation is viewed from multiple perspectives, including its substrates, form, function, performance, and meaning. Particular focuses are occupation in context, issues of inclusion/exclusion from participation, and occupation’s reciprocal relationship with well-being, health, and ill-health. Studies of occupation at population, community, group, and individual levels are welcome, as are explorations of occupation in relation to lifespan development, adaptation, temporal and spatial patterns, societal structures and barriers, sustainability and environmental impacts. Humanist, Indigenous, population, transactional, evolutionary, biological, ecological, historical, socio-political, philosophical, critical, and biographical perspectives of occupation will be considered."
