Journal of Visual Impairment & Blindness (JVIB)
Published/Hosted by American Foundation for the Blind.
JVIB is the premiere international, interdisciplinary journal of record on blindness and visual impairment that publishes scholarship and information and serves as a forum for the exchange of ideas, airing of controversies, and discussion of issues. JVIB is a monthly publication that includes research articles, as well as shorter pieces of interest to practitioners and extensive news coverage about the field of visual impairment. Two sections of JVIB are available free online to the public: Speaker's Corner and Perspectives. These columns are platforms for members of the blindness field who are invited to express their points of view about timely, important, and controversial issues. Readers of these columns are encouraged to visit the JVIB online message board, and voice their opinions on these important topics. The journal was first published under the name Journal of Visual Impairment & Blindness in January 1977. The journal's purpose, as conceived by the AFB Publications Advisory Committee, was to foster an exchange of information between the research and practice communities in the field of visual impairment and blindness. JVIB joined two periodicals representing each discipline, the New Outlook for the Blind, which had primarily served practitioners since its inception in 1907, and the AFB Research Bulletin.
