Autism Spectrum Quarterly is an outstanding and highly unique international publication that represents a new genre in the field of autism spectrum disorders (ASD). As the one and only MAGAJOURNAL®, ASQ’s mission is to serve as the information leader and bridge between the research and general autism communities. Its aim is to bring its readers the high-interest articles they want AND the reader-friendly, cutting-edge science news they need. To accomplish this, ASQ brings together outstanding researchers, well-respected professionals, exceptional parents, and highly articulate individuals with ASD. With its well-respected and extraordinarily knowledgeable editors and its world-renowned advisory board, ASQ is your one-stop, gold-standard resource to keep family members, professionals, and people on the spectrum up-to-date and on the same page!
For Apple iPad and iPhone users, go to the Apple App Store ICON and search for Autism Spectrum Quarterly or Autism Magazine. Android users can download the app directly onto their smartphones and android tablets by going to the Google Play Store. To read ASQ on your Kindle Fire, just go to Amazon and search on Autism Spectrum Quarterly digital. In addition to the free sample magazine and the summer and fall 2013 issues, readers will also find all of the 2012 issues (at a lower-priced, single-issue rate). Additional back issues will follow soon.
Autism Spectrum Quarterly digital offers several interactive features with easy-to-follow instructions for use. For example, the Clipping feature enables readers to clip portions of articles they would like to post on Facebook or send to family, friends, and others—perhaps professionals working with children, adolescents, or adults—via Twitter and/or email. Even more exciting is the live-link feature that not only gives readers access to websites and/or videos that enhance information in articles and research columns, but also enables readers to obtain additional information—on-the-spot—regarding products and services that interest them.
As noted on the home page, we will continue to offer the print version of ASQ as well as the digital one so that we can provide readers with a choice of reading formats. In fact, we urge our print subscribers to download the Autism Spectrum Quarterly free app so that they are able to take advantage of “breaking news” alerts on a variety of subjects, as well as forthcoming special supplemental digital issues of ASQ, some of which will be offered on a complimentary basis.
Both single digital issues, as well as digital subscriptions of ASQ are available for purchase via the Autism Spectrum Quarterly app.
ASQ is described as "THE MAGAJOURNAL®" to underscore that it combines the readability and interest of a high-level magazine with the substance and depth of a professional journal. It is this combined focus that distinguishes ASQ from other publications of its type, and creates an important niche in the world of autism publications that has heretofore been lacking. Each issue features a line of research and commentary aimed at helping parents, teachers, and clinicians to translate this research into practice.
