Review of Disability Studies: An International Journal - Volume 1 Issue 2

Welcome to the second issue of The Review of Disability Studies: An International Journal.  This issue includes a forum on “Postsecondary Education,” as well as research articles from a variety of fields, essays, commentary, and book reviews.  Thank you to all of our subscribers for your support and patience as we establish ourselves as a new journal!  We realize that the first two issues have been produced rather sporadically, and our aim is to produce four issues a year and to establish a regular publication schedule.  All subscribers will receive four issues (a year’s subscription), regardless of when their subscription started.

If you are not yet a subscriber and are viewing this issue online, note that this is the last issue of The Review of Disability Studies that will be available for free online. Our next and subsequent issues will require a subscriber password to access the online version of the journal (subscribers also receive a print edition).  See the front cover of the journal for information about how to subscribe or go to www.rds.hawaii.edu.

A final note, although there are several contributions from authors outside of the United States in this issue, our aim is to increase the international flavor of the journal. So let your friends and colleagues around the world know about the journal and encourage them to submit articles, essays, creative works and commentary.  Submission guidelines can be found on the back cover of the journal and are also available at www.rds.hawaii.edu.

So please, sit back and enjoy this issue of The Review of Disability Studies.

The Editors,

Robert A. Stodden, Megan A. Conway, Steven E. Brown
