APCP Journal

The APCP Journal is the first journal in the UK to focus on paediatric physiotherapy - it aims to disseminate original research, facilitate continuing medical education and to provide an opportunity to debate controversial issues in paediatric physiotherapy.   


We welcome submissions from APCP members and other paediatric physiotherapists and other professionals with an interest in paediatric physiotherapy.  The submission guidance lists the types of submissions that will be considered for publication and gives advice about writing and formatting your work, as well as the submission process.
The APCP Editorial Board is also happy to give pre-submission advice to support you in this process.
Please send Journal submissions and queries to
