Transition to Thieme Medical Publishers

The Journal of the American Academy of Audiology is published by Thieme Medical Publishers and produced with the help of publishing partners located throughout the world.

Publication delays have occurred as a result of the transition to a new publisher, which required the reformatting of all existing JAAA content, all content already in production and all new content entering the production stream. In addition, across the globe, in locations where JAAA publication processes are occurring, lockdowns and workplace requirements related to halting the spread of COVID-19 and resulting supply-chain issues are continuing to contribute to unexpected delays in the release of journal articles and issues.

We sincerely apologize for the delays in publication. We are working as swiftly as possible with our publisher to make content available in a timely and accurate manner.

We appreciate your patience in these challenging times.
