Aims & Scope

Aims & Scope

Autism in Adulthood is the home for research and scholarship on the most pressing issues affecting adults on the autism spectrum, from emerging adulthood to later life. Using original research, in-depth analysis, and inter-professional dialogue, Autism in Adulthood provides new insights and evidence to promote practice, systems, and policy change. This innovative journal integrates the contributions of autistic adults - as Editorial Board members, authors, peer-reviewers, and readers - into the peer-reviewed literature. 

Autism in Adulthood welcomes research and scholarship from multiple disciplines, professions, methodologies, and paradigms. Coverage includes:

  • Physical and mental health of adults on the autism spectrum
  • Employment, housing, education, community participation, economic well-being, and quality of life
  • Sexuality, gender identity, relationships, and caregiving
  • Autistic intelligence, sensory processing, communication, executive functioning, and flexibility
  • Healthcare and social services
  • Identification, treatment, and accommodation of co-occurring conditions
  • Basic science research with implications for autism in adulthood
  • Biological, neurological, psychological, cognitive, emotional, behavioral, and social changes with aging
  • Policies and programs affecting adults on the autism spectrum
  • Human and disability rights and advocacy
  • Portrayal of adult autism in society and the media
  • Ethical issues in research, practice, or policy on autism in adulthood
  • Intersectionality of autism and race, ethnicity, nationality, gender, sexual orientation, disability, class, trauma, discrimination, and other social determinants of health
  • Transitions across the lifespan, including transitions to and through adulthood
  • Insights about autism from adults on the spectrum
  • Participatory approaches to research, practice, and policy, in partnership with individuals on the spectrum
  • Methodological advances for conducting research on autism in adulthood

Autism in Adulthood is under the editorial leadership of 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.
