SAGE Publishing participates in World Autism Awareness Week

Autism affects 700,000 people in the United Kingdom, although it is well-researched there is still a need for more to be done to raise both awareness and make a difference to the lives of autistic people living in the UK.1 This is what World Autism Awareness Week (26 March – 2 April 2018) sets out to do. Here at SAGE Publishing, we believe that engaged research is one way to help start conversations, raise the debate and create a platform for building awareness globally about disorders such as autism. To help start that debate we have freed up a selection of articles relating to autism research and have also opened up the National Autistic Society’s society journal Autism.

If you also want to get more actively involved in Autism Week, please remember that you can also donate or raise money to help the NAS provide support to autistic people and their families.

So all that is left to do is sign up for free access to Autism here and see all our highlighted research below:
