The American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA) is actively seeking editor and editorial board member applications for 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.

ASHA Journals Overview

Since 1936, ASHA journals have published high-quality, impactful research that focus on advances made in the discipline of speech-language pathology, audiology, and communication sciences and disorders. Below are our journals and their brief description.

American Journal of Audiology (AJA), published quarterly, pertaining to clinical audiology methods and issues, and serves as an outlet for discussion of related professional and educational issues and ideas.

American Journal of Speech-Language Pathology (AJSLP), published bimonthly, concentrates on all aspects of clinical practice in speech-language pathology.

Journal of Speech, Language, and Hearing Research (JSHLR), monthly published, focuses on the normal and disordered processes in speech, language, hearing, and related areas such as cognition, oral-motor function, and swallowing.

Language, Speech, and Hearing Services in Schools (LSHSS), published quarterly, pertains to the practice of audiology and speech-language pathology in the schools, focusing on children and adolescents.
