About the Journal

The Journal of Interprofessional Practice and Collaboration (JIPC) is an open access peer-reviewed online journal by the faculty of the College of Health Sciences (COHS) at the University of Louisiana Monroe (ULM). The Journal’s mission supports the development and dissemination of original research, interprofessional and clinical practice, evidence-based knowledge, patient-centered healthcare, and innovative ideas to inform health professional students, educators, healthcare leaders, and practitioners for best practice.

The Journal seeks manuscripts that contribute to clinical and educational efforts that enhance higher education program planning in the allied health professions and improve the health of populations in our community. The Journal’s priorities are papers in the fields of counseling, dental hygiene, health studies, kinesiology, marriage and family, medical laboratory science, nursing, occupational therapy, physical therapy, radiologic technology, and speech-language pathology. Relevant articles from other disciplines of other allied health professions may be considered for publication. Articles can be submitted in the form of research articles, reviews, conceptual articles, short papers, topic synopsis, patient-centered essays, and letters to editor or commentaries.

The Journal is currently published semi-annually in October and May. The journal seeks, on average, to provide authors with initial feedback within 30 days from date of submission.

The Journal follows the publishing standards and ethics set by the International Committee of Medical Journal Editors (ICMJE), Recommendations for the Conduct, Reporting, Editing, and Publication of Scholarly Work in Medical Journals, and the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE).

The Journal is indexed by EBSCO and Google Scholar.
