Introduction: The purpose of this study is to describe and characterize the international scientific output relating to "attitudes towards disability in education", using a battery of bibliometric indicators that make it possible to analyze and monitor international scientific activity. Method: This "ex post facto" retrospective study analyzed 925 papers published in the "Social Sciences Citation Index" (SSCI) database during the period 2000-2011. Results: The number of publications increased steadily between 2006 and 2010. The results reported here include the most productive authors, the journals that deal with this topic, and the articles cited most often. An analysis of research types showed a tendency toward empirical studies. A total of 18 categories were identified when considering article content, and the distribution of the research studies across stages of education was found to be uneven. Discussion and Conclusion: The results reveal a topic that is highly current in today's scientific community, and offer us a view of the traits that have characterized research on "attitudes towards disability in education" for the last eleven years.
