Rolling Publication

What is it?
Article-based publishing as opposed to issue-based publishing 

How Does it Work?
Rather than waiting for accepted material to be in a print issue, articles are published immediately on the homepage

How does this affect readers?
Readers get new information faster. Be sure to check the homepage often for new content! Every three months (quarterly), the issue is “closed,” and placed in the CJRT Archives.

Why is this better for authors?
The benefit to authors is that acceptance to publication time will be reduced and there is no more waiting for the article to appear in a finalised issue.

Message from the Editor in Chief

J Sorge 2


Are you attending the CSRT conference in Vancouver? I will be at the CJRT booth outside the Exhibit Hall during the Welcome Reception (17:30-18:30, Thursday May 24th). I welcome all questions on potential submissions, the review process, or any thoughts or comments you may have on the journal that represents your profession.

Can’t make it to the conference? Be sure to check out the proceedings here: Full HTML. I encourage you to review the abstracts and connect with the authors to collaborate, share, and engage as we build our own body of knowledge.


We are pleased to introduce curated collections featuring all published articles from the CJRT archives related to a selected topic of interest to RTs. The CJRT will be announcing a new article collection every 3 months. For our second quarter of 2018, we have created a collection on the topic of Airway Management / Tracheostomy - check it out today at the “Article Collections” tab above.


The CJRT is always recruiting interested volunteers to participate in the peer review process. Create a profile today at: http://manuscript.cjrt.ca! You get to read the latest papers in your area of expertise and practice your critical review skills. After each completed review, the peer reviewer receives educational credit letters that can be applied to your provincial CPD program. New to research? We are happy to start you off slowly and pair you with experienced reviewers for your first review.
