Two new awards, the AJLD Eminent Researcher Award and the AJLD Early Career Researcher Award, were initiated in 2012. These Awards, funded by Routledge, publishers of the the Australian Journal of Learning Difficulties, are designed to recognise significant contributions to research and to encourage submissions of high quality research papers to the Australian Journal of Learning Difficulties, and in this way to raise the profile of the AJLD. These awards are decided by the Journal Editors in consultation with the Editorial Board and LDA President.
