Overview

Mental retardation is defined as a condition in which an individual exhibits below-average intellectual abilities and immature behavior, characterized by an IQ below 70. Some studies have suggested that approximately 1% of the world's general population is mentally retarded. As such, mental retardation presents a major challenge to social, educational, health, and economic systems across the globe. This serial was established under the editorship of Dr. Norman R. Ellis in 1966. As a result of his editorial effort and the contributions of many authors, the serial is now recognized as the best source of reviews of behavioral research on mental retardation. From its inception, active research scientists and graduate students in mental retardation have looked to this serial as a major source of critical reviews of research and theory in the field.
