The Internet Journal of Allied Health Sciences and Practice, now in its 13th year of publication, is an internationally peer-reviewed, open-access, scholarly, on-line journal dedicated to the exploration of allied health professional practice, research, and education.

The IJAHSP was established in response to a growing interest in the advancement of allied health professionals as integral members of the health care team. The first publication of the Journal was in January 2003 with Volume 1 Number 1 and continues as a quarterly publication. Our goal is to help first-time and seasoned authors to publish  information of relevance to all practitioners.

The IJAHSP provides a global interdisciplinary forum where initiatives involving the science, practice, and education of allied health professionals are shared. 

All articles have been peer reviewed by members of the editorial and review boards. Articles are approved for publication by the Editorial Board, and the Editor-in-Chief. All articles are recognized, registered, and on file with The Library of Congress Catalog of Publications as submitted on CD-ROM in html and pdf.
