A colleague shared a link with me several weeks back showing top journals, and more specifically within the realm of physical therapy. Worth the share out to readers. You can find the link here to see what journal you follow and it’s impact factor.
On the other side of the coin, I ran across this post explaining why a prestigious journal (in this case New England Journal of Medicine) may not guarantee something is true.
Needless to say, you need to be able to critique research. That’s the science behind our art of treatment. Having your argument from a well recognized journal helps! Next time you go to a course and they present research behind their approach….good to look for RCTs but the actual journal too.
Are the journals you follow, or better yet, use as your basis for EBP, top 10?
