OpenPhysio is an open access, peer-reviewed academic journal with an emphasis on innovative approaches to teaching and learning in physiotherapy.  We accept papers that deal with the classroom, community and clinical contexts and encourage authors to take a critical perspective on physiotherapy education and share their ideas on different ways to think about teaching and learning. OpenPhysio offers a unique opportunity to share your findings with the world immediately, and a peer review process that is both open and transparent.
