Abstract

INTRODUCTION: The Internet Journal of Allied Health Sciences and Practice is a peerreviewed, open-access, multidisciplinary, international journal, published by the College of Allied Health and Nursing at Nova Southeastern University. Since 2003, the journal has been visited by an increasing number of countries and has published authors from around the globe.

PURPOSE: The purpose for developing the IJAHSP was to create a journal that was credible, peer-reviewed, and free to the healthcare audience, that would allow for more time spent with the first-time author. The purpose of this presentation is to present the history, methods and successes of the journal as well as the management and ongoing development of a web-based journal.

OUTCOMES. Over the past 7 years, the journal has published over 200 manuscripts from counties around the globe. The journal is regularly visited by readers in more than 100 countries. Both first time and seasoned authors have published and many remain affiliated as review board and editorial board members.
