Marginalization of Published Scholarship on Students with Disabilities in Higher Education Journals
Pena, Edlyn Vallejo
Journal of College Student Development, v55 n1 p30-40 Jan 2014
While numbers of students with disabilities continue to rise in postsecondary education, little is known about the extent to which the scholarship on this student population has kept pace. A critical content analysis was conducted to review articles on students with disabilities published in top-tier journals of higher education between 1990 and 2010. Topical and methodological trends and limitations were examined, revealing that the depth and breadth of research on students with disabilities is vastly limited in mainstream journals of higher education. Recommendations are made for future research to fill gaps in methodology and topic areas.
