Asia Pacific Journal
The Asia Pacific Society for the Study of Speech, Language and Hearing, was relaunched with a new format in 2007, and is the official journal of the Asia Pacific Society for the Study of Speech, Language and Hearing.
Edited by Professor Michael Robb, PhD., Professor and Head of Department of the Department of Communication Disorders, University of Canterbury, Te Whare Wananga O Waitaha, Christchurch, New Zealand, assisted by an editorial board of leaders in research in the fields of speech, language and hearing drawn from the global community, the journal provides an international and interdisciplinary forum where scientists and clinicians with interests in communication impairments can share their knowledge and expertise. Given the special problems posed by the specific languages and cultures encompassed by the different Asia Pacific nations, the provision of such a forum for researchers and clinicians in the Asia Pacific region is necessary.
The Asia Pacific Society for the Study of Speech, Language and Hearing is an archival journal that publishes peer-reviewed experimental and clinical research papers, reviews, clinical notes, comments and critiques on any aspect of normal or disordered speech, language or hearing. Although the majority of articles published come from researchers and clinicians located in the Asia Pacific region, manuscript submissions are warmly welcomed from the global community.
The journal is multidisciplinary in nature with manuscripts being accepted from all professional and scientific disciplines but particularly those of speech pathology, audiology, education, linguistics, psychology and medicine.
