Language and Speech provides an international forum for communication among researchers in the disciplines that contribute to our understanding of the production, perception, processing, learning, use, and disorders of speech and language. The journal accepts reports of original research in all these areas.

Interdisciplinary submissions are encouraged. Corpus-based, experimental, and observational research bringing spoken or written language within the domain of linguistic, psychological, or computational models are particularly welcome.

Purely clinical, linguistic, philosophical, or technological offerings should be sent elsewhere. The journal may commission book reviews, theoretically motivated literature reviews, conference reports, and brief tutorial introductions to new areas of research.

Starting in 2014 we encourage authors to submit either Short Reports or Full Reports. Short Reports should be approximately 4000 words (excluding title page, abstract, author affiliations, acknowledgments, reference section, figures and tables). Despite the brevity of a Short Report, it should describe original empirical findings that make substantial contributions to the field, and that will be of broad interest to the readership of the journal. For Full Reports, authors are encouraged to clearly convey the necessary information using a maximum of 20,000 words.

This journal is a member of the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE).
