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 Scandinavian Journal of Disability Research (SJDR) is the journal of the Nordic Network of Disability Research (NNDR), and it is the network’s board that appoints the journal’s editors. In September 2019, the journal finalised the transition to a new Editor-in-Chief.
Hanna Bertildotter-Rosqvist is resigning after three years of service, and Professor Inger Marie Lid takes over the responsibility for the journal. The current Co-Editors – Janice McLaughlin and Hisayo Katsui – continue in their position. As President of the Nordic Network of Disability Research, it is a great pleasure for me to welcome our new Editor-in-Chief and to extend the network’s gratitude to our resigning Editor.
