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.
Authors may use the final published article in classroom teaching and similar academic settings, provided that the recipients are made aware that the material is copyrighted and is not for further dissemination. An article provided for classroom use must include a link to the Web address of the journal in which it has been published (or is to be published).
Personal Websites and Institutional Repositories
Authors may post on their personal web sites, on department or university intranets, or in university repositories, the final, accepted manuscript along with the abstract from the final, published article when available, provided that the publication information (including the Web address of the journal site) is provided as applicable.
Presentation of Work
Authors may present their accepted manuscripts orally in whole or in part and may use elements of the accepted manuscript as needed to support the presentation.
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; Language, Speech, and Hearing Services in Schools; and 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.
