Aims and scope

JARO is a peer-reviewed journal that publishes research findings from disciplines related to otolaryngology and communications sciences, including hearing, balance, speech and voice.   JARO welcomes submissions describing experimental research that investigates the mechanisms underlying problems of basic and/or clinical significance. 

Authors are encouraged to familiarize themselves with the kinds of papers carried by JARO by looking at past issues.  Clinical case studies and pharmaceutical screens are not likely to be considered unless they reveal underlying mechanisms.  Methods papers are not encouraged unless they include significant new findings as well.  Reviews will be published at the discretion of the editorial board; consult the editor-in-chief before submitting. 

Papers appear on-line at as soon as the author's galley proofs are returned to the publisher, and later in a print version.
