International Journal

The International Journal of Speech-Language Pathology (International Journal) is the Association’s principle academic publication. The International Journals is produced six times a year in February, April, June, August, October and December, and is distributed in conjunction with Speak Out.

The International Journal promotes discussion on a broad range of current clinical and theoretical issues. Submissions may include experimental, review and theoretical discussion papers, with studies from either quantitative and/or qualitative frameworks.

Articles may relate to any area of child or adult communication or dysphagia, furthering knowledge on issues related to etiology, assessment, diagnosis, intervention, or theoretical frameworks. Articles can be accompanied by supplementary audio and video files that will be uploaded to the journal's website. Special issues on contemporary topics are published at least once a year. A scientific forum is included in many issues, where a topic is debated by invited international experts.
