Out of Aotearoa.

Out of Aotearoa is a new section of the New Zealand Journal of Physiotherapy. It is a reference list of publications relevant to physiotherapy that have appeared in peer-reviewed scientific and professional journals during the previous calendar year 2005. The intent of OOA is to inform members research specifically relevant to New Zealand physiotherapy practice; to highlight the breadth and depth of expertise within (or produced by) the New Zealand physiotherapy community; to facilitate prospective new researchers in the identification of potential supervisors, role-models and mentors; and to celebrate the success of our home-grown academics on the world stage. Articles are be eligible for inclusion if they report research or scholarly activity relevant to physiotherapy, that was either:

a) conducted in New Zealand, or

b) authored/co-authored by a New Zealand physiotherapist(s) (regardless of whether the author was based locally or overseas), or

c) authored/co-authored by a physiotherapist(s) based in New Zealand (regardless of citizenship or nationality).

We invite submissions or referrals of eligible articles at any time, to
