Copyright Information for Health and Interprofessional Practice

Open Access and Author Rights

Evidence-based practice depends on the availability of high-quality evidence to inform clinical decision-making, patient care and practitioner education. However, much quality evidence is not easily accessible to practitioners because of high subscription costs to journals and other online resources. Open access, peer-reviewed publications dedicated to evidence-based interprofessional care can help address this issue. As such, Health and Interprofessional Practice is committed to maintaining immediate open access to all work it publishes.
