It is with great pleasure that I welcome you to the Journal of the International Academy of Physical Therapy Research (JIAPTR), the inaugural journal for physiotherapists in South Korea.  This is an exciting turning point for South Korean Physiotherapists, providing them with a forum to both report and direct Physiotherapy practice nationally and internationally.  Importantly, the JIAPR will contribute to the expanding evidence underpinning Physiotherapy practice.  The presentations will span interesting case studies to reports from formal research projects, all of which will contribute to best practice. Other forms of communications will include letters to the editors, methodological advances and brief reviews. As physiotherapy practice is routinely informed by research from both within and without the Physiotherapy profession, contributions from all researchers who provide findings and reports that will inform physiotherapy practice will be welcomed. In conclusion, I congratulate Prof. Min, Kyung Ok, Chairman  and the editorial board, including Prof. Jin, Maei Wha and Dr. Mi-Joung Lee for producing the first issue of this exciting new journal.  Forthcoming issues, biannually, will continue to inform clinical practice.
