Professionals have relied on The
Journal of Special Education for
timely, sound research in the area of special education. JSE provides research
articles and scholarly reviews by expert authors in all subspecialties of
special education for individuals with disabilities ranging from mild to
severe. JSE’s goal is to add to current scholarship and provide a sense of emerging
directions in the field.
- reports of empirical research — descriptions of
research studies that include students with disabilities or remedial education
students, their teachers and other service providers, and/or parents. These
studies must have clear, important implications for special education research
- scholarly reviews — focused syntheses that integrate extant
research bases that are important to the improvement of the practice of special
and remedial education

special education, JSE considers research representing diverse methodologies,
including group design, single-subject research, and ethnographic studies.
