"The Journal of Intellectual Disabilities provides evidence of inter-professional scholarship in this applied area. The Journal combines a unique and eclectic blend of evidence of scholarly activity that combines practice development innovation with robust research methodology. The result is a publication that aspires successfully to provide pragmatic solutions to service change and advances in professional practice, based upon best evidence and intellectual rigour. Furthermore, the Journal continues to provide a forum that makes a significant contribution to enhancing the quality of life for people with intellectual disabilities and their supporters'. Professor David Sines, London South Bank University

"Multi-disciplinary research in the field of learning disabilities is much needed but hard to realise. The Journal of Intellectual Disabilities plays a major role in making this a reality to the benefit of both practitioners and researchers." Professor Roy McConkey, University of Ulster

"The Journal of Intellectual Disabilities appears to provide genuine recognition of a multidisciplinary trend in professional practice and seeks to promote research and scholarly work to advance activities of the caring professions. It draws upon several academic disciplines although its focus is practice-oriented. It would appear to fill a market gap insofar as the other major journal in the area is strongly rooted in the discipline of psychology. Published articles are varied yet have in common a shared concern to enhance professional policies and practice." Professor Nigel Malin, University of Derby
