The Journal of Assistive Technologies (JAT) is issuing a call for papers on the following general themes:

  • User focus on current and new assistive and enabling technologies
  • Telecare
  • E-inclusion

More information on the journal and full guidelines for contributing.

About the journal
JAT debates definitions and concepts and addresses ethics, policy, legislation and issues for day-to-day practice. Articles focus on how people use digital/electronic assistive and enabling technologies, rather than solely on the technology itself, with the aim of raising awareness of available technologies and their uses for a wide and varied readership. The users of such technology could be people with learning disabilities, older people, people undergoing medical treatment or children in schools. The journal does not seek to limit the areas from which it receives submissions, provided that the submitted article describes a use of assistive technology within health, support, care or education.

Journal of Assistive Technologies welcomes the submission of articles from researchers and users of assistive technologies. All articles should have a clear user focus. The target audience of professional practitioners, researchers and academics requires a wide view but the journal’s aim is to enable research to influence practice. Authors are asked to address this issue in their articles.

Articles will fall into one of the following categories:

  • Peer-reviewed articles (3,000-7,000 words in length)
  • Policy and debate pieces, case studies and project descriptions (c. 2,000 words in length)
  • Book/resource reviews (500-1,500 words in length)

Submission details
All submissions should be sent to the editor Dr Chris Abbott.
