Abstract

Introduction:The empirical and theoretical knowledge of a discipline is often published in the format of peer-reviewed journal articles. Over the years, Australian occupational therapist authors have made significant contributions to the profession’s knowledge base. This begs the question, what are the most cited journal articles authored by Australian occupational therapy authors?Aim:to identify and profile the most cited articles written by Australian occupational therapy authors published in peer-reviewed journals Method:Using a combination of Harzing’s Publish or Perish, Google Scholar Profile and Microsoft Academic Search software packages to extract data, the articles written by one or more Australian occupational therapy authors that had 100 or more lifetime citations were retrieved and reviewed. Journal articles were organised according to the following: total number of citations, year of publication, research design, number of authors, and topic/focus of article.Results:279 articles were initially retrieved and 63 were cited>100 times and thus were included in the final review. The 63 selected articles were published between 1989 to 2010; had a mean of 16.32 (SD=14.87) citations per year of; and a mean age of 15.2 (SD=5.5) years. In the 63 highly cited articles, the three most frequent research designs were qualitative (17.6%;n=11) and literature review and opinion piece both at 15.6% (n=10). The most common focus of the articles were intervention(34.4%;n=22) and theory/models (23.4%;n=15). Australian occupational therapy authors most often published in journals originating from the United States (40.6%;n=26), or Australia (35.9%;n=23). The most frequent journal type where Australian authors published were occupational therapy specific journals (56.3%;n=36) fol-lowed by medical journals (25%;n=16).Conclusion:Australian occupational therapy authors have made a significant and sustained contribution to the discipline’s body of knowledge domestically and inter-nationally. Their publishing achievements are to be applauded
