Sharing and Using Your Research
ASHA recognizes the importance of authors’ use of their work in furthering the scholarship and research. Although a copyright transfer is signed by authors at submission, authors should be aware that they retain many rights for noncommercial use of the material. Express permission for use is required only in circumstances stipulated on the copyright transfer form.
Reproduction, Re-publication, and Dissemination: Authors may, for professional purposes, make copies of the final, published article, provided that copyright is attributed and that no commercial use is made of the material. Authors may share by e-mail the PDF file of the final, published article for the purpose of dissemination to professional colleagues. Authors may also reuse in their own future works, without permission from ASHA, tables and figures from their article, provided that a full bibliographic citation is provided, including the Web address of the ASHA journal in which the article was originally published.
ASHA is working with a free service called GrowKudos to help our authors maximize the impact of their published work. You can use GrowKudos to
- Open up research to new audiences
- Track the most effective networks for getting your work read, discussed, and cited
- Learn where to focus your efforts to make best use of time
- Improve the metrics by which your reach is evaluated.
Altmetric data is now available on articles published in the ASHA journals (the American Journal of Audiology; the American Journal of Speech-Language Pathology; the Journal of Speech, Language, and Hearing Research; and Language, Speech, and Hearing Services in Schools), as well as on articles in Perspectives of the ASHA Special Interest Groups.
The Altmetric data available on the journal articles allows you to
- See the attention that each article is receiving from nontraditional sources, including mainstream and social media, published policy documents, and online reference managers
- Explore the conversations surrounding the content
- Identify recent papers your peers think are interesting.
