The Journal of Neurologic Physical Therapy (JNPT) is an indexed resource for dissemination of research-based evidence related to neurologic physical therapy intervention. High standards of quality are maintained through a rigorous, double-blinded, peer-review process and adherence to standards recommended by the International Committee of Medical Journal Editors. With an international editorial board made up of preeminent researchers and clinicians, JNPT publishes articles of global relevance for examination, evaluation, prognosis, intervention, and outcomes for individuals with movement deficits due to neurologic conditions. Through systematic reviews, research articles, case studies, and clinical perspectives, JNPT promotes the integration of evidence into theory, education, research, and practice of neurologic physical therapy, spanning the continuum from pathophysiology to societal participation.
The Journal of Neurologic Physical Therapy (JNPT) is the primary peer-reviewed, indexed resource for advancing neurologic physical therapy practice through the dissemination of definitive evidence, translation of clinically relevant knowledge, and integration of theory into education, practice, and research.
JNPT is the official quarterly publication of the Neurology Section of the American Physical Therapy Association and of our sister society the Associação Brasileira de Fisiotherapia Neurofunctional (ABRAFIN). Prior to September 2003, JNPT was known as Neurology Report. Back issues of Neurology Report are available in the Previous Issues archive
Unique Features Distinguishing JNPT
JNPT exists to disseminate knowledge to advance the science and clinical practice of neurologic physical therapy. The readership of JNPT is primarily comprised of neurologic physical therapist clinicians and movement science research experts. This is a uniquely dedicated community and JNPT is their journal. The reviewer pool draws heavily from specialists in this community with demonstrated content expertise, and for that reason the reviewers have a strong dedication to the quality of journal content. This dedication manifests as outstanding reviews and guidance intended to maximize the impact of the journal content. The core journal articles include original research as well as integration and interpretation from the diverse areas of study that contribute to the science underlying the physical therapy management of persons with functional deficits due to neurologic conditions. To augment the core article content, JNPT also offers digital media in the form of on-line videos, audio podcasts, journal clubs, and blogs that further the goal of translating knowledge from the bench to the bedside.
