The Journal of Humanities in Rehabilitation (JHR) is a scholarly peer-reviewed journal dedicated to cultivating a dialogue between rehabilitation professionals and the disability community to explore the human condition as people experience the impact of illness or disability. We seek to bring a more humanistic approach to health care by encouraging an enlightened level of understanding between patient and practitioner. We do this to help enable each individual’s maximum healing process.
Connecting the Disability Community
JHR does not charge for author submissions or reader subscriptions. We depend on sponsorships, grants, and donations from community members to build this singular platform that supports engagement with the disability community and embraces the intersection of the humanities and the health sciences.
Giving Advances Our Vision
Giving to JHR helps to support critical operating costs, including copy editing, IT/web development and maintenance, and payment to graduate assistants on our editorial staff.
Additional support will:
- Allow development of innovative digital projects
- Support creation of interdisciplinary graduate assistantships in digital health humanities
- Fund scholarship programs to engage rehabilitation-related visual and performing artists
- Facilitate involvement of community and patient/caregiver advisory councils
- Support teaching and research missions of the journal
- Expand domains of expertise in humanities scholarly work
- Invest in engaging technology in pedagogy and research
- Foster awareness of the integration of humanities into rehabilitation care.
How to Donate
