Welcome to the Journal of Social Science & Allied Health Professions. We are a registered, free, open access international and interdisciplinary journal for the dissemination of social science articles in the allied health professions. Our aim is to publish original research articles (both empirical and theoretical), literature reviews, position papers and commentaries on health and practitioner issues, to inform current research, policy and clinical practice in all areas of common interest to social scientists, health practitioners and policy makers. We welcome pilot studies, post-graduate research work and digital posters that can contribute to these aims and be readily available online. This source welcomes material relevant from any allied health profession (diagnostic radiography, therapeutic radiography, podiatry, physiotherapy, operating department practice, speech and language practice and occupational therapy), as well as material relevant to social sciences concerned with physical and mental health, health care, health psychology, clinical practice, and health policy and organisation. We encourage material, which is of general interest to national and international readership.
This site publishes the following types of contribution:
1) Peer-reviewed original research articles and critical or analytical reviews in any area of the allied health professions research relevant to health. These papers may be up to 8,000 words including abstract, tables, and references as well as the main text.
