A JSLP contains a number of unique formats designed to give contributors flexibility in presenting scholarly work of clinical importance to its readers. Most notably, World View, Clinical Consult, and Second Opinion have no clear parallels in other ASHA scholarly publications in speech-language pathology. These publication categories have well-defined features that make them readily distinguishable as can be witnessed in the present edition.
The boundaries between other formats are sometimes a bit fuzzy, and as a colleague recently pointed out to me, this lack of clarity can sometimes have significant implications. The issue in this particular case was our Research category. A glance at almost any issue makes it clear that contributors have found AJSLP to be a good home for their clinical research. The problem is, because we have a designated section for Research, articles that fall in other sections seem to have been considered by the editor as, well, not research. Even a cursory examination of articles published in our Clinical Focus section over the first six editions will demonstrate that this section has sometimes been the repository for research articles; in some cases, the research was even experimental in nature.
