Auditio : Announcements <p>After 20 years committed to the dissemination of hearing research in Spanish, AUDITIO | The Spanish Journal of Audiology is relaunching as a bilingual journal, and <strong>accepting contributions in the English language</strong>.</p> <p>AUDITIO considers for publication original research articles as well as acceptable secondary contributions (“Research Reports”) in the field of audiology and hearing sciences. Due to AUDITIO’s diverse readership, contributions should emphasize their significance for the <strong>scientific and clinical community</strong>, and the writing style should be adequate for a broad and multidisciplinary audience.</p> <p>To increase the outreach of our publication, since 2021 all articles published in AUDITIO are <strong>open access</strong> under a creative commons license and available <strong>both in English and Spanish</strong>. Contributions can be submitted in the two languages, with the translation being carried out by our team of professional scientific translators.</p> <p>AUDITIO evaluates the submissions in a <strong>rigorous and transparent peer-review</strong>. Furthermore, AUDITIO ensures the publication of articles of interest for the broad audiological community by having a <strong>"third reviewer"</strong>, usually a hearing care professional, who provides additional feedback in the peer-review process.</p> <p>AUDITIO is preserved using LOCKSS and PKP PN, registered in Sherpa/Romeo and has a detailed plan for full indexation in PubMed, DOAJ, REDIB, Web of Science by 2023 and Scopus by 2024. <strong><a href=""></a></strong></p> <p> </p> <p>Indexed in: <a href=";as_epq=&amp;as_oq=&amp;as_eq=&amp;as_occt=any&amp;as_sauthors=&amp;as_publication=Auditio&amp;as_ylo=&amp;as_yhi=&amp;hl=es&amp;as_sdt=0%2C5">Google Scholar</a>, <a href=";from_ui=yes">Crossref</a>, <a href=";_indexrecordidentifier=&amp;creator=&amp;repositoryname=Auditio&amp;f%5B1%5D=title%3AAuditio&amp;items_per_page=10">Recolecta</a>, <a href="">CORE</a>, <a href="">Dialnet</a>, <a href="">ICI World of Journals, </a><strong><a href="">Scilit, </a><a href=";q=&amp;fq=dt%3Aart&amp;source=Auditio">WorldCat</a>, <a href="">MIAR, </a><a href="">Dulcinea, </a><a href="">Sherpa/Romeo, </a><a href="">ROAD, </a><a href=";lookfor=auditio&amp;ling=0&amp;oaboost=1&amp;name=&amp;thes=&amp;refid=dcresen&amp;newsearch=1">BASE, </a><a href="">Publons, </a><a href=";search_text=Auditio&amp;search_type=kws&amp;search_field=full_search">Dimensions</a>, <a href="">OpenAire Explore</a>, <a href="">SemanticScholar</a>, <a href="">Livre!</a>.</strong></p> <p> </p> en-US Sun, 03 Apr 2022 14:10:24 +0200 OJS 60 Call for papers: Special Collection: "Advances in implantable hearing devices" - Call for papers <p>The objective of this special collection is to present the latest advances related to diagnostic audiological assessments necessary to indicate cochlear implantation, surgical approaches, rehabilitation as well as the latest technologies in implantable hearing devices, from the processor to the design of electrodes for implantable hearing aids.</p> <p>Cochlear implants (CI) have proven to be the best option for rehabilitating severe and profound hearing loss in children and adults, providing better access to the acoustic environment and, especially, to speech.</p> <p>The first trial using electrical stimulation of the auditory nerve was conducted in 1953 by Djourno and Eyries operated on a patient with chronic otitis media and facial paralysis. In 1970, William House, in California, reported that a deaf subject could perceive sound after receiving the first implant based on auditory nerve stimulation using a single electrode. Since then, CI technology has continuously advanced: in 1984, multichannel CIs were developed and speech processing strategies were progressively improved. At the beginning of the century, CIs were approved for use in children as well, and they are now considered the standard for treating profound congenital bilateral hearing loss. Based on clinical results, the audiological criteria for implantation have been progressively expanded to include adults with asymmetric hearing loss, unilateral deafness or high-frequency hearing loss ("ski slope audiograms"). In addition, children with disabilities in addition to hearing loss also can regain hearing through CI.</p> <p>Today, new surgical techniques combined with new electrode developments and together with the great development of medical imaging allow to preserve better and better the delicate structures of the cochlea after cochlear implantation. In addition, speech rehabilitation methods have evolved, new coding strategies continue to be developed allowing the improvement of noise listening and localization for CI users. However, results with HF can vary significantly due to a wide variety of factors influencing performance. It is imperative to identify the factors responsible for this variability to maximize the benefits that will affect the CI user throughout their lifetime. Besides, implantable hearing devices ,such as bone-anchored hearing devices, middle-ear active implants , electro-acoustical stimulation or auditory brainstem implants, have emerged and showed their benefits in patients with specific types of hearing losses.</p> <p>The set of articles published within the special collection <strong>"Advances in Implantable Hearing Devices"</strong> are expected to address different aspects, including:</p> <ul> <li class="show">Surgical advances related to the implantation of these devices.</li> <li class="show">Advances in the criteria of cochlear implantation.</li> <li class="show">Advances in hardware and software, including new coding strategies.</li> <li class="show">Benefits observed in terms of functional hearing and quality of life.</li> <li class="show">Improvements in different aspects of auditory perception, such as speech intelligibility or sound localization, etc.</li> </ul> <p><img src="" alt=""></p> <p>Manuscripts must be submitted to the AUDITIO submission system before <strong>July 31<sup>st</sup> , 2022.</strong> &nbsp;Manuscripts can be submitted in Spanish or English, and accepted contributions will be translated into the other language by professional translators. The articles will be accessible in open access and the article processing charges (APC) will be covered by AEDA by 70% (so the APCs will be only € 150). The articles will be published as "Research Articles", so they will have a maximum length of 4000 words and the style and content must be suitable for the multidisciplinary community of researchers and hearing health professionals (<a href=""></a>).</p> <p><strong>If you wish to participate in this call, we ask that you send us a summary of your contribution by May 31<sup>st</sup> , 2022 to the email </strong><a href=""><strong></strong></a><strong>.</strong></p> <p>AUDITIO is a scientific journal published in both Spanish and English, with a rigorous peer review, open access and with an emphasis on dissemination and research in the field of audiology.

By analyzing the FFR it is possible to read neural traces from the scalp as sounds are transcribed in the neuronal aggregates and how these neural sound traces are shaped by different auditory experiences, context, and challenging conditions, such as listening in noise, with age and in speech and language disorders. Moreover, the number of developmental studies recording the FFR during the first years of life in healthy and clinical conditions are growing exponentially, as the FFR provides a neurophysiological correlate of language acquisition and processing.<br><br>Despite its popularity, a lot remains unknown about the FFR: what are the underlying processes involved in generating the response and what do the components making up the FFR reflect exactly? What kind of analyses are most appropriate to characterize the response? And what does inter-individual variability in the FFR signify? The aim of this workshop is to bring the FFR community together and to open up the discussion on the origins and interpretation of the response, explore new recording and analysis techniques, and discuss hot topics in this rapidly evolving field.<strong><br></strong></p> Wed, 16 Mar 2022 21:05:32 +0100 News: AUDITIO, a bilingual scientific journal for the multi-disciplinary community of researchers and professionals interested in audiology <p>The article <a href="">"Preliminary results of the enriched acoustic environment as personalized sound-therapy for tinnitus"</a> is now available in open access both in English and Spanish.</p> <p>We want to thank all the people involved in the publication process: P.
