Autonomy, the Critical Journal of Interdisciplinary Autism Studies

This new journal, the latest offshoot of the Autreach project will  appeal to the widest range of the current autism research community and foster cross disciplinary discourse between the fields of medical research, education and sociology amongst others

The  emphasis will be on encouraging contributions from autistic scholars who have hitherto had limited exposure to academic publishing. We will feature papers reviewed by respected academics in the appropriate fields, reviews and also feature an opinions section which it is hoped will stimulate a lively interdisciplinary debate.

At the present time the editorial team consists of a small core of academics, most of whom have some link with the Autism Centre for Educational Research at the University of Birmingham (UK)  though we are expanding our appeal as we progress towards a sample issue demonstrating the future potential of this journal.

Expressions of interest are encouraged and we urge you to register with us.
