Speech, Language and Hearing
We are pleased to announce some exciting changes relating to our Journal. Beginning this year, the New Zealand Journal of Speech, Language Therapy will transition to a new publication with a new title: "Speech, Language and Hearing" (SLH). This publication will become the official journal of the NZSTA.
The journal will be published by Maney Publishing, a leading publisher of academic and professional journals. This change will provide many benefits including, more resources, greater visibility, and improved financial stability while maintaining the NZSTA’s tradition of providing the membership with a high quality scientific, and clinically relevant, journal.
The journal will be published four times per year and members will receive electronic and paper versions of each issue (type of access may vary depending on membership category; further information will follow regarding this). Professor Michael Robb will be serving as Editor-in-Chief of SLH and as part of the agreement with Maney, the NZSTA will have members placed on the Editorial Board. These members will be involved in the peer reviewing of manuscripts submitted for publication. Maney has also agreed to provide an archive of several past issues of New Zealand Journal of Speech-Language Therapy to guarantee that the legacy of our previous publication lives on.
The Executive Council are confident that this new partnership will expand the visibility of the NZSTA on the web, at conferences, in libraries, and better serve clinicians and researchers within (and outside) of New Zealand who wish to publish their research. The journal has a user-friendly online manuscript submission and peer review system. I encourage you to contribute your research to SLH to showcase the quality of research occurring within the country.
Any manuscript and editorial correspondence should be directed to him. Any other correspondence or subscriptions should be directed to National Office.
