This report looks great, but Firefox isn't letting me access it - it's
saying that the disabilitystudies.nl website is configured improperly
and therefore not "safe".
I managed to get to it via Chrome on my other computer, but still had
to go through a similar warning message, so I'm guessing others might
not be able to access it, and whoever is your webmaster needs to do
Are there any plans for journal publications?
