SAGE to publish Research and Practice for Persons with Severe Disabilities

June 20, 2014

Published in association with TASH

Los Angeles, CA - SAGE and TASH are delighted to announce that SAGE will begin publishing Research and Practice for Persons with Severe Disabilities (RPSD) beginning June 2014.

Published quarterly, RPSD is an internationally acclaimed journal that publishes research on the full array of issues related to individuals with disabilities including: augmentative and alternative communication, inclusion, supported living, supported employment, early childhood issues, self-advocacy, positive behavioral supports, disability rights and issues of concern to families.

"RPSD is the most influential vehicle for progressive research in the disability field," said Barbara Trader, Executive Director of TASH.  "We are thrilled to be working with SAGE whose extensive experience in the publication of education journals and solid reputation in this field will bring new light to the journal."

RPSD includes both scientific and value-oriented approaches to disability research. With contributions from leading scholars in the field, its progressive research promotes dialogue on meaningful, often controversial real-world issues.

RPSD is an important resource for disability researchers that has enhanced the quality of life for people with severe disabilities and their families,” said Bob Howard, Vice President of Journals Editorial, SAGE. “As the new publishers of the journal, we support both its experimental integrity and its commitment to the highest standards of scholarly excellence.”
