Main Document

Quote: "Autism in Adulthood will meet the imperative for research and better coordinated services targeted to youth with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) who are transitioning to adulthood and throughout the life cycle."

Mary Ann Liebert, Inc., publishers announces the launch of Autism in Adulthood, a new peer-reviewed journal dedicated to biological, neurological, psychological, cognitive, emotional, and behavioral research and scholarship on the most pressing issues affecting adults on the autism spectrum, from emerging adulthood to later life. Launching in early 2019, the Journal will be the premier source for authoritative original research, in-depth analysis, and inter-professional dialogue, providing new insights and evidence to promote practice, systems, and policy change. A special mini-preview issue of the Journal will appear in Spring 2018.

A half million youths with ASD will become adults in the United States over the next decade and there is a global unmet need for dissemination of data pertaining to adults on the autism spectrum, with most research having been focused on the pediatric population. Autism in Adulthood will meet the imperative for research and better coordinated services targeted to youth with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) who are transitioning to adulthood and throughout the life cycle.

Autism in Adulthood will be led by Editor-in-Chief Christina Nicolaidis, MD, MPH, who co-directs the Academic Autism Spectrum Partnership in Research and Education (AASPIRE) and has joint appointments at Portland State University and Oregon Health & Science University.

Dr. Nicolaidis will guide an established group of thought leaders on the Editorial Board of Autism in Adulthood, including Simon Baron-Cohen (University of Cambridge, UK), Akio Wakabayashi (Chiba University, Japan) Clarissa Kripke (University of California, San Francisco), Alexia Rattazzi (PANAACEA, Buenos Aires, Argentina), Lisa Croen (Kaiser Permanente Northern California), Jeremy Parr (Newcastle University, UK), Scott Robertson (US Department of Labor), and Associate Editor Dora Raymaker (Portland State University).

Autism in Adulthood will publish fully peer-reviewed, evidence-based original articles, review articles, advances in methodology, and perspectives, as well as an array of frontmatter content including editorials, analysis, and commentary, including some from adults on the autism spectrum.

An interdisciplinary community of autism researchers, scholars, and practitioners from multiple fields, including bioethics, biology, cognitive science, disability studies, education, family medicine, geriatrics, gerontology, internal medicine, neurology, neuroscience, nursing, occupational science and therapy, physical therapy, psychiatry, psychology, public health, rehabilitation counseling and medicine, social work, sociology, and speech language pathology; adults on the autism spectrum and their families; and policy-makers and health and social services administrators are invited to participate in this new resource.
