The American Journal of Occupational Therapy announces a call for papers for a special issue on occupational therapy for military deployment-related issues, including
- Occupational therapy intervention effectiveness,
- Instrument development and testing, and
- Examination of the occupational performance needs of deployed military and returning veterans.
The objectives of this special issue are to generate empirical research supporting occupational therapy’s role in the treatment of deployed military and recently returning veterans (and their families) for use by consumers, insurers, and other health care professionals. Literature reviews will not be accepted.

Abstracts should be no more than 200 words and contain the headings Objectives, Methods, Results, and Conclusion. Abstracts can address research in progress and should indicate when the study will be completed and whether a submission date of September 2013 can be met. Papers matching the goals of this special issue will be invited for formal submission.
