Since becoming editor of AJSLP, I have received a number of inquiries from authors relating to issues that bear on ethical standards for the publishing of scientific articles. A sample of the questions would include the following: Can two different articles emphasizing different questions directed to different professions be published using the same data set and the same tables? Can an article that has already been published on the Internet be submitted for publication in AJSLP so as to receive the imprimatur of peer review? Can an article be submitted for publication if it expands upon a previous article that used a limited data set and was already published in conference proceedings? Does a conflict of interest exist when an author submits an article based on work completed while previously employed by the publisher of the materials that were the focus of the study? These questions are not unlike those received by the editors of the other ASHA journals. In some instances, the answers may seem to be straightforward. But in others, they may require some debate before reaching a consensus on the appropriate response for the situation.
