The concept of neurodiversity is exerting a powerful influence in academia and the real world. There has been a sharp increase in publications referring to ‘neurodiversity’ since 2000 (Figure 1), many people now identify as ‘neurodivergent’, and there are worldwide public initiatives such as Neurodiversity Celebration Week that actively promote the concept. In light of this growth, we are pleased to announce the launch of Neurodiversity – a new journal that will focus on interdisciplinary approaches to improving understanding of neurodiversity and its application in real-world settings. Following in the spirit of the emergence of the neurodiversity concept from the autism rights movement, Neurodiversity represents an exciting new addition to Sage academic journals, like Autism, dedicated to advancing understanding and improving the lives of neurodivergent people.
