Autism provides a major international forum for research of direct and practical relevance to improving the quality of life for individuals with autism or autism-related disorders. The journal's success and popularity reflect the recent worldwide growth in the research and understanding of autistic spectrum disorders, and the consequent impact on the provision of treatment and care.

Autism is interdisciplinary in nature, focusing on evaluative research in all areas, including:

  • intervention
  • diagnosis
  • training
  • education
  • neuroscience
  • psychological processes
  • evaluation of particular therapies
  • quality of life issues
  • family issues and family services
  • medical and genetic issues
