Editorial Notes

The journal of Sexuality and Disability continues to be a professional home and foundation for many, and a place of professional rejuvenation and exploration for many more. If you are new to the journal, we give to you a “BIG WELCOME” and invite you to participate as a reader, author, academician, clinician, educator, service provider, researcher, advocate, individual or individuals seeking information. Over decades of contribution to the literature on sexuality and disability, we have been a part of the growth and understanding. Now most importantly, we continue to be a part of the change in how we look and examine the topic, the need, and the response in terms of best practice- evidence based approaches. With the intelligence, experience, motivation and supportive commitment from our authors, readership, peer reviewers and editorial board, and resources with guidance from the Springer Staff, our journal’s mission continues to be strong and meaningful. This international team effort continues as a strength in the field of sexuality and disability.

Sexuality and Disability continues to provide original impact articles addressing the mental health and medical aspects of sexuality in relation to rehabilitation, hospital, academic and community settings, publishing up-to-date articles, case studies, clinical practice reports, reviews, featured articles, historical articles, special grand rounds topics, brief research reports and survey data reports. Value benefit is provided to authors through worldwide electronic exposure and professional access, while readership gains from scholarly contributions to advance the field through research, evidence-based, best-practice and educational articles.

The refined lens of individual contributions from the local and international community continues to deliver a wealth of information with broad perspective on the topic of sexuality and disability for the reader. Thank you for joining our professional efforts.

We look beyond the local horizon, to find what has always been there. We speak with mutual respect to build channels of communication. And the more we listen to what is being said with an open mind, the more we can learn and contribute. - Sigmund

As we start a new year, special recognition with appreciation is given to the current and previous Editorial Board Members, Reviewers, Springer and Staff members, and our International Community that includes Readers and Authors.
