Call for Papers

Journal of Speech Sciences (JoSS)

Volume 1, number 2 (regular issue)


This is the Call for the second issue of the Journal of Speech Sciences (JoSS). The JoSS covers experimental aspects that deal 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.

Original, previously unpublished contributions should be sent through the journal website ( until July 15th. The primary language of the Journal is English. Contributions in Portuguese, in Spanish (Castillan) and in French are also accepted, provided a 1-page (between 500-600 words) abstract in English be provided. The goal of this policy is to ensure a wide dissemination of quality research written in these two Romance languages. The contributions will be reviewed by at least two independent reviewers, though the final decision as to publication is taken by the two 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.
