We’ve made some important changes to our esteemed peer-reviewed journal, the Canadian Journal of Speech-Language Pathology and Audiology (CJSLPA).

Here's what's new:
 

NEW PUBLICATION PROCESS AND FORMAT

CJSLPA will be moving from a quarterly publication to a rolling publication, where articles will be published online as soon as they have gone through the final step in the peer-review process. This new format aims to shorten the time from submission to publication and ensure that we are publishing the latest research in speech-language pathology and audiology as quickly as possible. 

NEW SUBMISSION CATEGORIES

Recognizing that different types of articles can be useful to individuals working in different professional, clinical and/or academic settings, we have expanded our manuscript categories to include the following: research articles, research notes, clinical focus articles, case studies, tutorials and review articles. 

We have included the clinical focus and case study categories to increase the direct clinical impact of our publications. We encourage clinicians and researchers to consider these new categories when determining where to publish their work. You can read more about all of the submission categories here
