Starting in 2013 Maney will be collaborating with the Asia Pacific Society for the Study of Speech, Language and Hearing (APSSLH) to launch Speech, Language and Hearing. This is a significant development for both Maney and the Society.
Speech, Language and Hearing is the official journal of APSSLH and is provided to each member as part of their membership. The journal welcomes submissions from clinicians and researchers with expertise in the field of communication disorders, particularly those in the areas of linguistics, psychology, education, audiology, speech-language pathology, and medicine.
Frances Nan Mai Wang, PhD, President of the APSSLH, is delighted to be collaborating with Maney to establish the new title. "The launch of this journal represents a turning point for the Society, and henceforth members will receive all the benefits of a professionally produced journal."
Speech, Language and Hearing will be published quarterly (March, June, September, and December) and is edited by Professor Michael Robb of the Department of Communication Disorders, University of Canterbury, New Zealand.
Professor Robb is looking forward to working with Maney. "Maney Publishing offers an online submission and refereeing system, online publication, a new professional format, and international promotion that will establish Speech, Language and Hearing as one of the premier journals in its field. Topics to be covered in 2013 include communication competency in high-functioning autism, auditory neurophysiology, phonological awareness, as well as a range of papers on both normal and disordered aspects of speech, language and hearing."
"The publication of Speech, Language and Hearing, together with Cochlear Implants International and Deafness and Education International, confirms Maney as a publisher of choice for science and applied research in audiology, speech and language pathology," says Mark Simon, Publishing Director at Maney Publishing. "In addition to the three journals which will be available to libraries as a discounted bundle, Maney will continue to publish related stroke and rehabilitation work in other journals which will be included in relevant virtual compilations. It is a privilege to work with the Asia Pacific Society for the Study of Speech, Language and Hearing whose biennial conference is an increasingly important event."
