AJOT Authors & Issues Series

What goes on behind the scenes in a research setting? Can I ask questions directly to an author? How can I find out more about a topic covered in one of AJOT’s "The Issue Is" columns?

AJOT’s Authors & Issues series answers those questions, and more! Led by Stacey Reynolds, AJOT’s editor-in-chief, one article for each issue is selected for a deep dive into the content with the authors and invited guests. The interviews are posted to AJOT’s YouTube channel. The recordings are also posted to CommunOT for viewing and asynchronous discussion. Authors and guests moderate the online discussion and answer questions for one week. The recordings and discussions are archived on CommunOT.

Below you’ll find each interview in the series followed by the names of the authors and guests who were interviewed and a link to the published AJOT article.
