Autism is a major international forum for research of direct practical relevance to improving the quality of life for people on the autism spectrum.

The journal's success and popularity reflect the recent worldwide growth in the research and understanding of autism and the consequent impact on the provision of treatment and care.

Autism is published eight times a year by SAGE Publications, in January, February, April, May, July, August, October and November. The journal aims to:

  • encourage research into practice in the field of autism spectrum disorders
  • encourage theoretical and academic researchers to consider the implications of their findings for practice.

Articles include substantive research reports, as well as smaller-scale action research and case studies. Critical reviews of recent experimental work, and its relevance to intervention and care provision, are also a core feature of the journal.

To view a sample copy of the journal, please visit the SAGE Publications website.
