Communication sciences and
disorders (CSD) encompasses speech-language pathology, audiology, and
speech, language, and hearing science—fast-growing fields where interdisciplinary
collaboration is the norm. Access to research in top-tier journals in
CSD is vital to that collaboration.
Journals from the American Speech-Language-Hearing
professional, scientific, and credentialing organization for more than
140,000 clinicians and researchers in CSD—have been the pre-eminent
sources for the research guiding the discipline for more than 75 years.
