Journal of Speech Sciences

Editors: Plínio Almeida Barbosa & Renata Regina Passetti


The Journal of Speech Sciences (JoSS) is an open access journal which follows the principles of the Directory of Open Access Journals (DOAJ), meaning that its readers can freely read, download, copy, distribute, print, search, or link to the full texts of any article electronically published in the journal. 

The JoSS covers experimental aspects that deal with scientific aspects of speech, language and linguistic communication processes. Coverage also includes articles dealing with pathological topics, or articles of an interdisciplinary nature, provided that experimental and linguistic principles underlie the work reported. Experimental approaches are emphasized in order to stimulate the development of new methodologies, of new annotated corpora, of new techniques aiming at fully testing current theories of speech production, perception, as well as phonetic and phonological theories and their interfaces.

The JoSS is supported by the initiative of the Luso-Brazilian Association of Speech Sciences (LBASS) . Founded in the 16th of February 2007, the LBASS aims at promoting, stimulating and disseminating research and teaching in Speech Sciences in Brazil and Portugal, as well as establishing a channel between sister associations abroad.



JoSS was offline for some months, a period that was necessary to the migration of the entire database to a new placement hosted by the Institute of Language Studies of the University of Campinas, Brazil. Commercial issues and a gain in security and stability motivated our decision. The journal will be made completely operational during this first semester of 2016. All past papers are online. Two new issues will be available as soon as possible. We apologize for any inconvenience this decision may have caused. Please, continue to support our journal.
