Three months. Reading lots of manuscripts. Appreciating associate editors who say yes and reviewers who say yes. Thinking about how Language, Speech, and Hearing Services in Schools (LSHSS) addresses the needs of its readers. And contemplating accessibility as an important trait or characteristic of a journal.
In putting together a course syllabus, I have a hard time deciding what to assign for readings. There's so much to choose from. As a student, I preferred reading journal articles and chapters over textbooks. I like the direct access to an author that an article and chapter provide. As an instructor, I prefer to assign journal articles and chapters. As I see it, a good journal article provides the opportunity to have a good conversation. If the author has a good story to tell, on something about which I like to hear about, I'm in. Despite computers and tablets, I still like reading from hard copy, perhaps because by the second paragraph of an article I'm typically scribbling in the margins of the paper. Great idea … But … What about … Oh I see. I'm holding up my end of the conversation. I have my favorite authors, too, ones I really enjoy having a conversation with, albeit via scribbling.
