About This Journal
OCCUPATION is a journal created to serve as a medium of inquiry for students, faculty and other practitioners working to advocate for improved health in the community through studies of human occupation. This electronic scholarly journal publishes articles from current students, recent graduates, occupational therapy practitioners and professionals from a variety of disciplines on a variety of topics intended to explore, analyze and advocate for issues related to occupational participation, justice, and health. OCCUPATION and its corresponding virtual community, CHAOS, were founded in 2014 by six 3rd year entry-level doctoral students in occupational therapy at Nova Southeastern University’s Tampa Campus. As part of their work in their specialized occupational science course they recognized the need for dissemination of scholarly research related to health and human occupation. In response to that need they began what would later become known as the “Legacy Project”. The Legacy Project refers to the inception of the journal OCCUPATION, and CHAOS. Thus began the tradition of passing down the task of maintaining and editing these platforms to each incoming cohort of students enrolled in the occupational science course.
