The Journal of Postsecondary Education and Disability: From Past to Present
Madaus, Joseph W.; Lalor, Adam R.; Gelbar, Nicholas; Kowitt, Jennifer
Journal of Postsecondary Education and Disability, v27 n4 p347-356 Win 2014
To recognize the 30th anniversary of the "Journal of Postsecondary Education and Disability" ("JPED"), every journal publication was analyzed to determine topics covered and characteristics of the samples studied. This article describes the development of a taxonomy to classify the topical areas examined in the field of postsecondary education and disability, as well as within "JPED." Results indicate that most articles were concentrated at the program or institution level, followed by articles on students, then articles focused on the development of new constructs in the field, and, last, articles about faculty and non-disability support staff members. Trends over time and implications for future researchers are presented.
