The journal, Sexuality and Disability, continues to be a professional home and a place of professional rejuvenation for study. Many have followed the journal over the decades since the 1970s. If you are new to the journal, we give to you a “BIG WELCOME” and invite you to participate as a reader, author, academician, clinician, educator, service provider, researcher, advocate, or person seeking information. Over the years of contribution to the literature on sexuality and disability healthcare, we have been a part of the growth, understanding, and advocacy. Most important, we continue to be a part of the change in how we look and examine the topic, the needs, and the response in terms of best practice- evidence based approaches. With the intelligence, experience, motivation, and supportive dedication from our authors, readership, international peer reviewers and editorial board members, and resources combined with valuable guidance from the Springer Staff; our journal’s mission continue to be strong and meaningful.
This international effort continues as a strength in the field of sexuality and disability. The dynamic flow and complex layers of knowledge, from a global perspective, allows us to add an open window of opportunity to learn not just what we are taught and experience, but to also learn what we do not know. The hallmark of academic growth in any field is the sharing of information, the presentation of questions and answers, and the promise of further directions for inquiry. The awareness and acknowledgement of varying viewpoints and perspectives provides the synergy that drives us forward.
Since 1978, Sexuality and Disability continues to cultivate our knowledge to have impact on education, research, and practice. Sexuality and Disability makes available original impact articles addressing the mental health and medical healthcare aspects of sexuality in relation to rehabilitation, hospital, academic, and community settings, publishing up-to-date articles, case studies, clinical practice reports, reviews, featured articles, historical articles, special grand rounds topics, brief research reports, and survey data reports. Value benefit is provided to authors through worldwide electronic exposure and professional access, while readership gains knowledge from scholarly contributions which advance the field through research, evidence-based, best-practice and educational articles. Individual contributions from the local and international community delivers a wealth of information with broad perspectives on the topic of sexuality and disability.
