You might notice just a little extra weight in your hands right now. We haven’t gone to card stock…we’re just enjoying a great deal of success at the offices of the American Journal of Speech-LanguagePathology. Closing our third volume with this issue, we now find ourselves living that mixed blessing of too many wonderful manuscripts waiting in the publication queue, and too few issues (not to mention pages per issue) to get all of them in print. This “problem” has set several solutions in motion.
First, the ASHA publications division went the extra mile to add an entire signature (that is, 32 print pages) to this issue. This is no small undertaking and represents increased staff and fiscal resources on the part of the National Office. Second, a number of outstanding clinical scholars had to receive word, and then to exert patience upon its hearing, that their accepted manuscripts would not reach the readership until 1995 (Volume 4). I want to take this opportunity to express my appreciation to these authors for graciously accepting the downside of this growth spurt at AJSLP. Finally, the Legislative Council approved a resolution from the Publications Board at its November 1993 meeting. It allowed the Publications Board to move the Journal to a quarterly when the time was appropriate and the number of manuscripts made it necessary. At its recent meeting (July 28–31), the Publications Board sent forward a resolution to the Executive Board indicating that the time is indeed right, and requesting that financial support be granted to allow a quarterly publication in 1995. In case this decision, by any of these three legislative bodies, seems an easy one to make to you, it might be of interest to note that adding just one issue per year results in an expenditure of approximately $35,000 to $40,000 annually. The serious consideration that must be given such a decision reflects the diligent oversight that is given to the use of membership revenue, as well as the responsiveness of these bodies to the needs of the ASHA membership. At AJSLP, we’re simply ecstatic that the combined efforts of ASHA scholars, educators, and/or practicing clinicians brought such respect, visibility, quality, and readership to the Journal.
