The Review of Disability Studies: An International Journal (RDS) will publish a special issue of the journal to mark the Pacific Rim International Conference on Disability and Diversity to take place in May, 2015. The special issue will be published in the Fall of 2015.
Works considered for inclusion may take the form of academic and creative works, as well as reflections on international disability-specific policies, practices, pedagogies and developments. To be considered, authors must first submit their abstracts using the Pacific Rim International Conference on Disability and Diversity submission process (http://www.pacrim.hawaii.edu/call-proposals-application-form). Authors of abstracts that are accepted for inclusion in the Pacific Rim Conference Program and that address disability-related strands within the Conference themes Exploration, Foundation and Innovation will be invited to submit a paper for consideration for inclusion in this special issue of RDS.
Abstracts will undergo peer-review as part of the submission process for the Pacific Rim International Conference on Disability and Diversity. Acceptance of an abstract does not guarantee publication in RDS. Authors are encouraged to review previous issues of RDS in preparing their abstract and to subscribe to the journal. Authors can refer to the website, www.rds.hawaii.edu, for more information about the journal and for formatting guidelines. Full paper submissions must be formatted according to RDS publication guidelines to be considered.
RDS is a peer-reviewed, multidisciplinary, international journal. Founded by the late Dr. David Pfeiffer, RDS is published by the Center on Disability Studies at the University of Hawai‘i at Manoa. The journal contains research articles, essays, creative works and multi-media relating to the culture of disability and people with disabilities.
A call for papers for this special issue with detailed information is forthcoming. For additional information please email the Forums Editor at firstname.lastname@example.org.
