The Journal of Science Education for Students with Disabilities (JSESD) has been providing a peer-reviewed venue for the dissemination of research and practice related to the education of students with disabilities in the science classroom and laboratory since 1998. Volumes #1 through 11 were published in a print format. Starting with Volume #12, the journal has been published as Open Access and online- free of charge to authors and readers. We are pleased to announce that the journal will now be indexed in ERIC (in addition to the Directory of Open Access Journals (DOAJ) and Google Scholar).
