Seemingly axiomatic, the idea that the work that we publish should impact patients, processes, drug and device development, and myriad other relevant factors is central to what journals do... Behind the scenes, we have worked to improve the visibility of the Journal to respiratory therapists and the research community at large... We are continuing to work on additional opportunities for indexing, ensuring that our visibility grows... Readers will also note that the Journal is now declaratively open access – a commitment to ensuring that the results of the research that we publish (and authors conduct) is highly visible, easily retrievable and accessible to all readers, regardless of ability to pay... This process is governed by a Creative Commons Non-Commercial Attribution (CC-BY-NC), which protects authors’ and the Journal’s rights, ensuring that proper credit is given and that the work is used only for non-commercial purposes, unless explicit permission is given to do so... This approach helps maintain the integrity of the work that we publish while ensuring it can be widely disseminated to those who use it... The cumulative effect of these endeavours is a stronger, more visible journal with greater reach and impact... This work is being done to ensure that the articles that are submitted to us are accessible to those who can integrate them into patient care, and the development of new technologies and approaches for improving the respiratory health of patients in Canada and elsewhere, and we continue to build the Journal to have a maximum impact on all aspects of respiratory therapy... While a goal is certainly to establish a measurable impact for the Journal by way of a quantification of citations and other metrics, we also view our responsibility more holistically, linking clinicians with researchers and with the field of respiratory therapy research, to support improvements in translating knowledge that we publish into clinical practice changes... Ultimately, this is the lasting impact that the Journal – and we as respiratory therapists – should seek to have.
