American Journal of Audiology, June 2006, Vol. 15, 2. doi:10.1044/1059-0889(2006/001)
Over the past several years, we have seen the American Journal of Audiology (AJA) emerge as a world-class platform for audiologists interested in staying up to date in a rapidly changing technological field. The direction of the journal has maintained a unique focus toward state-of-the-art coverage of clinical and applied aspects of audiology and hearing science, and therefore it is highly relevant to seasoned professionals and students alike.
In keeping with this spirit, AJA has embarked on a new format focusing on information exchange and debate, which is in addition to the standard types of articles already in place. Indeed, the December 2005 issue showcased this new mechanism for the discussion of important issues pertaining to audiology in a point-counterpoint-rebuttal format. The initial example focused on the topic of central auditory processing disorder. However, many other topics are well suited for this exposition of the issues and thus can be explored in a similar manner. Also encouraging was the fact that this concept was endorsed by the journal and by the Publications Board at ASHA. While endorsements are the starting point in this process, for it to be successful this new format requires someone to write a primary article on a specific topic of interest and, equally important, it needs others to respond and provide commentary. We now take this opportunity to invite and encourage others in the field to pursue this powerful format of information exchange and debate.
