News and Announcements


Starting tomorrow on August 1, 2023, the Journal of Clinical Education in Physical Therapy (JCEPT) will require all existing users and anyone who registers a new JCEPT account to sign in using an ORCID Identifier. Using ORCID enhances security and connects you and JCEPT to other journals, researchers, and funding resources. 

Sign up for an ORCID ID now to submit, revise, review, and edit any JCEPT article. Go to, select Sign In/Register on the upper right of the screen, and follow the prompts. See all instructions here. Once you have an ORCID ID, link your JCEPT and ORCID accounts.
Select ORCID two-factor authentication in settings under securityTwo-factor authentication must be activated on your ORCID account, such as DUO Mobile used at Columbia University or another two-factor authentication app.

The integration of ORCID into the JCEPT website is an important step as we move towards our goal of PubMedCentral indexing.
