Disability and Rehabilitation publishes 26 issues a year and, in addition, a further 6 issues in a separate volume of Disability and Rehabilitation: Assistive Technology.

Disability and Rehabilitation and Disability and Rehabilitation: Assistive Technology are international, multi-disciplinary, peer-reviewed journals, which seek to encourage a better understanding of all aspects of disability and to promote the rehabilitation process. The Journal publishes Review Articles, Experimental and Clinical Research Papers, Case Studies, Clinical Commentaries, reports on Rehabilitation in Practice and major Book Reviews.

The Journal encourages submissions covering the widest range of topics on disability and rehabilitation, including the severity and magnitude of disability, clinical medicine, gerontology, psycho-social adjustment, social policy issues, vocational and educational training, studies on pain, broad rehabilitation medicine topics along with papers on assistive technology and rehabilitation engineering. Papers should be directed at a wide range of professional groups, including medical practitioners, occupational therapists, physiotherapists, speech and language therapists, clinical and rehabilitation psychologists and those professionals involved in nursing, education and ergonomics. Those involved in engineering and assistive technology now have an exclusive volume of Disability and Rehabilitation.

Disability and Rehabilitation: Assistive Technology is devoted specifically to the broad range of technological developments and related supports and issues which enhance the rehabilitation process. Cutting across the full range of topics published in Disability and Rehabilitation, the assistive technology papers are characterised by their inter-disciplinary base and varied methodologies.

Disability and Rehabilitation and Disability and Rehabilitation: Assistive Technology are responsive to changing paradigms and perspectives within the broad field of disability and rehabilitation. Special Issues, devoted to key topics and edited by leading experts, are published on a regular basis. Collectively, the two volumes represent an important forum for the dissemination and exchange of ideas amongst global health practitioners and academics.

Disability and Rehabilitation and Disability and Rehabilitation: Assistive Technology are official journals of the International Society of Physical and Rehabilitation Medicine (ISPRM).
