16 free articles for World Autism Awareness Week

By Eleanor Howell, Marketing Manager, SAGE Publishing

At least 1 in 100 people in the UK have autism. World Autism Awareness Week (running from 27 March–2 April 2017) is an initiative set up by the National Autistic Society (NAS) in order to raise awareness about autism and make a difference to the lives of autistic people across the UK. At SAGE Publishing, we know that innovative scholarly research is key to providing a platform for developing conversations around key areas of research and debate, including that of better understanding autism.  In support of raising awareness around this developing medical field and body of research, we are highlighting sixteen articles from across SAGE Journals that are free to access until 30th April 2017, as well as making the whole of Autism, NAS’ society journal, free to access for a month.*
