Students are the future of service development and research. The Tizard Learning Disability Review (TLDR) is widely used in educational settings and we have published a number of articles based on work carried out by students. Nonetheless, students are often reluctant to submit their work for publication. They may be concerned, for example, about their work being rejected or receiving critical reviews. This is a shame. The new ideas and enthusiasm brought by students often mean that their work would be of great interest to others. Publishing success at the beginning of a professional or research career may be significant in terms of encouraging future work. The editorial board would like, therefore, to encourage the publication in TLDR of work carried out by students.
Initially, we seek submissions for an occasional “Student Section” of the journal. Articles of 2000-3000 words are sought which describe work carried out by student professionals or researchers. This might include those undertaking professional training in clinical psychology, nursing, social work, speech and language therapy, occupational therapy, medicine, applied behaviour analysis and other relevant disciplines; existing professionals/practitioners undertaking courses related to their continuing professional development; and research students undertaking Master’s or PhD degrees.
