Points of Pride

OJOT milestone

In August 2023, the Open Journal of Occupational Therapy recorded its 1 millionth full-text download from ojot.org. OJOT is the world's first and only open-access online journal in OT.

Dr. Diane Powers Dirette, professor in the Interdisciplinary Health Sciences Ph.D. Program, has been the managing editor since volume 1, issue 1 in fall 2012. The editorial board features several other OTs, professors and instructors from WMU and other institutions across the country. The editors offer special thanks to Fred Sammons and Barbara Rider, tremendous supporters of the occupational therapy profession and all of the work carried out by the OT department at WMU.
