The American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA) is actively seeking applications for open positions in their five ASHA journals. We are looking for enthusiastic researchers and scholars who will support ASHA Journals’ collective mission. Our goal is to disseminate research findings, theoretical advances, and clinical knowledge in the discipline of communication sciences and disorders by overseeing and maintaining the editorial direction of the journal.
