Journal of Disability Studies in Education (JDSE) is an interdisciplinary journal that focuses upon the experiences and outcomes of people with disabilities in education. DSE focuses upon the overt and covert barriers to access to, and presence, participation and success in education for people with disabilities. JDSE will therefore examine the architecture and cultures of education across all sectors: early childhood education; elementary education; secondary education; higher education; vocational training and informal and alternative education provision.
This is a fully Open Access journal, which means that all articles are freely available online, ensuring maximum, worldwide dissemination of content, in exchange for an Article Publication Charge.
As the journal receives a subvention for publication from the University of South Australia the Article Publication Charge is waived. For more information visit the
Brill Open dedicated webpage.
JDSE will publish 8 - 10 papers per volume per year. At the end of each volume, the papers will be published as a monograph for purchase. The papers will be published online at regular intervals to maintain the journal’s impact. Manuscripts will be subject to a rigorous anonymous peer review process.
