Recent issues of this journal have included a significant number of articles with direct relevance to clinical practice. For instance, the November 2009 issue (Volume 18, Number 4) included the report of one randomized controlled trial on the effectiveness of computer-based language intervention, two systematic reviews on specific clinical techniques used to treat speech and swallowing disorders, and a comprehensive literature review on the use of augmentative and alternative communication in schools. These types of scholarly and empirical activities represent “translational” efforts, because they seek to transform basic scientific discoveries into clinical activities (National Institutes of Health, 2009). The increased number of articles published in this journal that provide directly usable knowledge to speech-language practitioners is a particularly welcome development that I hope continues well beyond my editorship.
