Mission

AUDITIO | The Spanish Journal of Audiology is an international scientific publication, edited in Spanish and English, with rigorous peer review, open access and with an emphasis on dissemination and research in the field of audiology in an inclusive way in which professionals from different disciplines can contribute and share knowledge within the audiological community.

AUDITIO considers for publication any contribution of interest to the audiological community. For this, the contents are divided into different sections with innovative editorial policies. The editorial team's mission is to eliminate language, economic and academic barriers in order to promote research and generation of knowledge in audiology in Spanish-speaking countries and in the rest of the world. In addition, the articles follow a rigorous evaluation process in a transparent way, giving added value to the indispensable work of evaluating scientific content. As a final goal, AUDITIO wants to make the members of the Spanish Audiology Association participate in the magazine, promoting scientific pedagogy in all editorial processes and appreciating the contributions of members from different disciplines.
