December 12, 2017 – Rockville, MD – The American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA) announced today that it has engaged with Editage to launch author services. The ASHA author services, powered by Editage, are designed to support authors with not only end-to-end pre-submission manuscript preparation, but also post-publication research communication. All the author support services are available at a subsidized cost to ASHA authors. Authors submitting their manuscripts to journals published by ASHA will also have free access to a wealth of educational resources powered by Editage Insights, the author education arm of Editage.
On the launch of the new comprehensive author support center, Michael Cannon, Director of Serial Publications and Editorial Services at ASHA said, “We’re very pleased to work with Editage and offer holistic support to authors submitting their manuscripts to our journals. In addition to expert editorial support, the educational resources and research communication solutions will surely be valuable to many of our authors.”
Donald Samulack, President, U.S. Operations, Editage shared the motivation behind the collaboration, “Our mission is to empower every individual through effective communication, which is very well aligned with the vision of ASHA. I am certain that our services will empower ASHA’s author community in publishing world-class research papers and disseminating their published research to a wide audience.
Evolving trends and a rapid increase in the number of journals has made journal selection a complex process. Publishing research in a journal published by a scientific society has many benefits. In addition to investing back into the immediate community, scientific societies have access to experts from their niche subject area, which makes the peer review process more robust and efficient. Editage strives to empower author communities of scientific societies from all over the world through collaborations and service integrations.
