AUDITIO | Research Articles
This section contains the types of articles that often appear in academic publications. The main difference of AUDITIO is that, apart from the traditional peer review, there will be a non-academic reviewer as a “Third-party reviewer" (e.g. a clinical professional in the field of audiology). In addition, published articles will recognize the work of reviewers (contain the identity of reviewers) and the evaluation will be public (numerical evaluation of different aspects of the article). Evaluation reports and the author's response may also be included as supplementary content. All articles will contain a text box titled "Clinical Implications" where authors must emphasize the importance of the article and its connection to a better understanding, diagnosis or rehabilitation of hearing loss.
- Research Reports: Presentation of the results of a project or collection of articles that includes material already published in other academic publications. The objective is to disseminate the results of the research to a wider audience and connect the different studies that form it. The authors must have been involved in the project, but they do not necessarily have to be the first authors of the studies discussed in the summary.
- Original Articles, which report original unpublished data.
- Replication studies, which confirm or not results previously reported.
- Reviews, which present a critical analysis of the existing literature.
- Perspectives, which present a new point of view about an existing problem with focus in a future and unexplored direction.
AUDITIO | Research Communications
The content of this section will be considered "expanded material" of academic publications. This is:
- Clinical Reports: Presentation of the results of a student project or MSC thesis with a clear clinical component. Reports with research questions, hypothesis, and statistical analysis are considered "research reports" (see above).
- Commentary: Articles reviewing a scientific article published in AUDITIO, providing critical content or a different point of view. Commentaries will contain a summary of the original article, a summary of its findings, and a critical discussion about the content. "Third-party reviewers" of published articles are encouraged to generate such comments based on their assessment.
- AEDA Journal Club: This type of article presents an analysis, similar to a commentary, of a preferably recent article published in other publications in the audiology area. Authors are encouraged to analyze Open Access articles published in in scientific journals such as Trends in Hearing, mdpi Audiology Research, Ear and Hearing, International Journal of Audiology and Hearing Research among others.
- Technical Notes, Protocols, Book Reviews and Tutorials: Technical reports on a new technology, diagnostic test or new methods will also be considered for publication. The article must be written objectively and not contain commercial elements. The approach should be descriptive and rigorous, containing an introduction with relevant information and a discussion. The objective is to share practical or theoretical knowledge with the audiological community both scientific and clinical.
