Abstract


This brief message from the first Chief Editor of the Journal of Blindness Innovation and Research summarizes the purpose for the creation of this new scholarly publication. The article notes, "The purpose of the Journal of Blindness Innovation and Research is not to deny the social context, sanitize our research from human contamination, human preconceptions, and beliefs, but rather to acknowledge the impact of social attitudes and assumptions and to work to counterbalance low expectations with a positive view of blindness," and goes on to say that the journal, "...broadens the community of practice by firmly welcoming those who have much to contribute but whose expertise has been sought too little."
