Scandinavian Journal of Disability Research is an international peer-reviewed journal aiming to disseminate innovative, high quality, social research on disability, which enables critical reflection on the position of people with disabilities in different societal contexts.
The journal’s defining characteristic is a focus on the relationship between people with disabilities and their environments. It is multi-disciplinary in scope, incorporating research from a variety of perspectives - such as sociological, historical, cultural studies, health and social policy - which share a commitment to recognising that disability is not a property of the individual person, but something shaped by social relations and structures.
The journal was established by the Nordic Network on Disability Research (NNDR), an association who actively facilitate the sharing and dissemination of social research on disability in the five Nordic countries.

The world is facing massive challenges in light of the current pandemic. This is raising many issues for people with disabilities who are facing both heightened risk associated with the virus and also removal of care and support. The problems created by this will be felt by many people who submit to our journal and who review for us. At this stage, we wish to continue to accept manuscripts into the system, due to the impact closing submissions would have on early career researchers. However, we acknowledge that the difficulties many of us now face are likely to mean that review processes can be slower.
If you have a paper in the system and have concerns or questions, then do be in touch with the editor looking after your paper.
We offer solidarity to everyone during this time and hope people can stay safe and stay cared for.
