We invite submission of original research, as well as commentary or conceptual papers that address key issues for people with intellectual disabilities in regional, remote or rural communities. Submissions due by 31 August 2020.

Research and Practice in Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities Special Issue: Regional, Rural and Remote Service Access and Delivery

Research and Practice in Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities (RAPIDD) is a journal of the Australasian Society for Intellectual and Developmental Disability, published twice yearly by Taylor and Francis. It is indexed in Scopus. The Journals aims to inform thinking about disability and mainstream services that facilitate social inclusion and enhance the quality of life of people with intellectual disabilities and generate informed debate on contemporary issues that matter to their lives. The Journal publishes new empirical research, policy or practice commentaries, evaluations and conceptual discussion pieces. Papers are usually between 4000-6000 words.

A special issue on regional, rural and remote service access and delivery will be published in July 2021. People with intellectual disabilities and their family members from regional, rural and remote geographic areas experience specific challenges in accessing services to support their participation in communities and live the lives they want. People with intellectual disabilities from Indigenous backgrounds, and particularly those living in remote communities, experience significant additional barriers to inclusion and self-determination associated not only with geographic isolation, but also with lack of cultural understanding. Similarly, organisations delivering services in regional, rural and remote geographic areas, face challenges to the scope, delivery mode and cost of services. At a policy level, the geographic challenges experienced by people with intellectual disabilities, family members and service providers are often underestimated or unacknowledged.

This special issue of RAPIDD will focus on the broad range of issues associated with ensuring people with intellectual disabilities in regional, remote or rural communities access quality support services to meet their needs. Papers may focus on lived experience of people with intellectual disabilities, the design and delivery of services, staff training or retention, and policy or practice issues. We invite submission of original research, as well as commentary or conceptual papers that address key issues for people with intellectual disabilities in regional, remote or rural communities.

Papers should not exceed 6000 words and be submitted by 31 August 2020 via the Journal’s website [https://www.tandfonline.com/loi/rpid20].   For further details please contact Associate Professor Angela Dew angela.dew@deakin.edu.au  or Professor Christine Bigby c.bigby@latrobe.edu.au

Image of Journal coverResearch and Practice in Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities

Research and Practice in Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities (RAPIDD) is a journal of the Australasian Society for Intellectual and Developmental Disability published by Taylor and Francis twice a year. Its primary aim is to draw out the implications of research for practice and policy. The journal also aims to generate informed debate on contemporary issues that matter to lives of people with intellectual disability and their families. The focus is not only new empirical research, but also ideas and commentary about existing studies, the literature, policy and practice. Everything we publish aims to inform thinking about the design and delivery of specialist support and mainstream services that facilitates social inclusion and enhances quality of life of people with intellectual disability.

The Australasian context and people with intellectual and developmental disability are the core focus. However, comparative perspectives that explore similarities and differences with other countries or other groups of people with disability are also of interest. Such comparison helps to draw out both the unique and common issues that confront people with intellectual disability and Australasian practitioners.

The journal aims to create a constructive dialogue between the sometimes differing perspectives of managers, practitioners, academics, families, people with intellectual disability, advocates, funders and policy makers. It will provide space to consider the interface and respective roles of communities, families and service systems, both disability and mainstream.

Image of Journal coverDisability & Society

Disability & Society is an international journal published 10 times a year by Taylor & Francis. It provides a focus for debate about such issues as human rights, discrimination, definitions, policy and practices. It appears against a background of change in the ways in which disability is viewed and responded to.

Definitions of disability are more readily acknowledged to be relative; segregated approaches are seen as inadequate and unacceptable - placing greater emphasis on community care and inclusion. However, policy intentions may not have the desired effects on the realities of everyday practice and policy changes themselves may be merely cosmetic, or appropriate but unfounded.

The journal publishes articles that represent a wide range of perspectives including the importance of the voices of disabled people.
