Call Information:
Call for Papers
Journal of Speech Sciences (JoSS)
volume 3, number 2 (regular issue)

Indexed in Linguistics Abstracts and the DOAJ (Directory of Open-Access Journals)
http://www.journalofspeechsciences.org

This is the call for the sixth issue of the Journal of Speech Sciences (JoSS). JoSS covers experimental aspects dealing with scientific aspects of speech, language and linguistic communication processes. Coverage also includes articles dealing with pathological topics, or articles of an interdisciplinary nature, provided that experimental and linguistic principles underlie the work reported. Experimental approaches are emphasized in order to stimulate the development of new methodologies, of new annotated corpora, of new techniques aiming at fully testing current theories of speech production, perception, as well as phonetic and phonological theories and their interfaces.

The contributions should be sent through the journal website (www.journalofspeechsciences.org) until September 10th, 2013. The primary language of the Journal is English. Contributions in Portuguese, in Spanish (Castilian) and in French are also accepted, provided a 1-page (between 500-600 words) abstract in English be given. The goal of this policy is to ensure a wide dissemination of quality research written in these three Romance languages. The contributions will be reviewed by at least two independent reviewers, though the final decision as regards publication will be taken by the editors.

For preparing the manuscript, please follow the instructions at the JoSS webpage. If accepted, the authors must use the template given in the website for preparing the paper for publication.
