Disability Studies Quarterly (DSQ) is the flagship publication of the Society for Disability Studies (SDS, It is an interdisciplinary, multidisciplinary, and international journal of interest to social scientists, scholars in the humanities and arts, disability rights advocates, and others concerned with questions of interest to people with disabilities and the disability community, representing the full range of methods, epistemologies, perspectives, and content that the field of disability studies embraces. DSQ is committed to developing theoretical and practical knowledge about disability and to promoting full participation of disabled people in society. DSQ is published in an online, open access format that has been hosted by The Ohio State University Libraries as part of its KnowledgeBank initiative since 2006. However, its history predates this format, as DSQ is the oldest scholarly journal devoted to Disability Studies, publishing its first paper volume in 1980.
