ACPRC Journal

The Journal of the ACPRC is a UK based peer-reviewed journal that aims to publish original research and facilitate continuing professional development for physiotherapists with an interest in respiratory care.

The journal is dedicated to the development of best practice in respiratory physiotherapy clinical care, education, policy, and leadership and management of services.

We are pleased to receive articles reporting original scientific research, systematic, scoping reviews or meta-analyses, work-based projects including service improvement and service evaluations, case reports, commentaries, brief reports, technical reports and study and review protocols. All papers should demonstrate methodological rigour. We are especially keen to support new authors to publish their work.

The ACPRC Journal offers authors and its readers: open access; articles are indexed and retrievable on Google Scholar; we are a member of CrossRef, and all articles will have a DOI (a DOI is a permanent link to any electronic article, and therefore the link will not change). 

The journal also employs a double-blind peer review process for all original articles, which means that both the reviewer and author name(s) are not seen by one another for a manuscript under review.

The journal accepts submissions throughout the year.  We aim to have two online publications each year. For more information regarding submission for the ACPRC Journal please contact the current editors at

Current and previous issues of the ACPRC journal are available to download below, and if the issue you require is not listed then please get in touch.
