Upcoming Changes to the Journal

Posted on October 5, 2022

Dear Academy of Pelvic Health Members,

We are excited to announce two important changes to the Journal of Women’s Health Physical Therapy. Beginning in 2023, the journal will be renamed the Journal of Women’s & Pelvic Health Physical Therapy (JWPHPT). The new title brings the journal into alignment with the Academy name and the broad scope of current practice in this area while maintaining our commitment to women’s health.

Earlier this year, the APTA Academy of Pelvic Health Physical Therapy Board of Directors voted to follow the lead of PTJ: Physical Therapy & Rehabilitation Journal, and other APTA academy journals and move to online-only beginning in 2023. The transition to an online format ensures that the journal will continue to provide Academy members with accessible, timely research while also being environmentally and fiscally responsible.

As the premier resource informing women’s and pelvic health physical therapy practice and research, JWPHPT will continue to publish its valuable, not-to-be-missed content on a quarterly basis. You will continue to receive the same great high-quality content – and even more with an increase in digital pages and supplemental digital content!
