a stack of JVIB issues

The Journal of Visual Impairment & Blindness is the essential professional resource for information about visual impairment (that is, blindness or low vision). The international peer-reviewed journal of record in the field, it delivers current research and best practice information, commentary from authoritative experts on critical topics, News From the Field, and a calendar of important events.

Practitioners and researchers, policymakers and administrators, counselors and advocates rely on JVIB for its delivery of cutting-edge research and the most up-to-date practices in the field of visual impairment and blindness. Available in print, e-book, and online 24/7, JVIB offers immediate access to information from the leading researchers, teachers of students with visual impairments (often refered to as TVIs), orientation and mobility (O&M) practitioners, vision rehabilitation therapists (often refered to as VRTs), early interventionists, and low vision therapists (often refered to as LVTs) in the field.

Whether you're a reader, aspiring author, prospective advertiser, or would like to become a peer reviewer, you can find all the information you need in JVIB.
