About JSLHR

The bimonthly Journal of Speech, Language, and Hearing Research (JSHLR)—an online-only, international, peer-reviewed scholarly journal—has been published continuously since 1936. 

Online ISSN: 1558-9102
Print ISSN: 1092-4388

JSLHR has its roots in two prestigious American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA) journals. Prior to 1991, ASHA published the Journal of Speech and Hearing Research (1958–1996) and the Journal of Speech and Hearing Disorders (1936–1990). These titles were merged in 1991 to become the Journal of Speech and Hearing Research. Later, ASHA added the word Language to more accurately reflect the areas of research in the discipline.

Mission & Scope

Mission

JSLHR publishes peer-reviewed research and other scholarly articles on the normal and disordered processes in speech, language, hearing, and related areas such as cognition, oral-motor function, and swallowing. The journal is an international outlet for both basic research on communication processes and clinical research pertaining to screening, diagnosis, and management of communication disorders as well as the etiologies and characteristics of these disorders. JSLHR seeks to advance evidence-based practice by disseminating the results of new studies as well as providing a forum for critical reviews and meta-analyses of previously published work.

Scope

The broad field of communication sciences and disorders, including speech production and perception; anatomy and physiology of speech and voice; genetics, biomechanics, and other basic sciences pertaining to human communication; mastication and swallowing; speech disorders; voice disorders; development of speech, language, or hearing in children; normal language processes; language disorders; disorders of hearing and balance; psychoacoustics; and anatomy and physiology of hearing.

Impact Factor

The Journal Citation Reports® 2015 Impact Factor is 1.526, and the 5-year Impact Factor is 1.883.
