The association's journal launched a project that brings new rehab-related information to readers as quickly as possible.

The COVID-19 pandemic demands that PTs, PTAs, and other rehabilitation professionals stay on top of what's being learned about the disease and how the role of physical therapy is evolving because of it. PTJ, APTA's scientific journal, is doing its part to deliver the latest research with minimal delays. In fact, says PTJ editor-in-chief Alan Jette, PT, PhD, FAPTA, the journal's latest project is offering information in ways that are about as "real-time" as you can get.

Now available on the PTJ website: the PTJ COVID-19 Virtual Issue, a platform that allows the journal to share its latest COVID-19-related research and perspectives at a rate not possible through the normal PTJ publication process. The journal is free to members, and the virtual issue contains open-access work, free to everyone.

The virtual issue isn't a static resource. Instead, PTJ will add new manuscripts on a regular basis. The result is a collection of articles that, while not in final copyedited form, are as fresh from authors as possible.
