The American Speech-Language-Hearing Association is participating in an important trial initiative to gauge interest by Chinese researchers and faculty in the research published in ASHA’s four journals. The International Scholarly Publisher’s Group (ISPG), a consortium of 19 Science, Technical, and Medical publishers that includes ASHA, has reached an agreement with the National Science and Technology Library (NSTL), the primary purchaser of academic journals in the People’s Republic of China, to permit access to 49 journals for a limited trial period. From June 16 through August 31, 2011, faculty and researchers at dozens of universities across China can access the journals offered by the ISPG publishers, either through an authorized IP address or a username and password created for the trial. The usage statistics compiled during the trial period will be used as the basis by the National Science and Technology Library to negotiate longer term access to those ISPG journals consulted most frequently within China during the trial period.
It’s a simple equation: the more that ASHA’s four online journals are accessed by Chinese researchers and faculty during the limited trial period, the more likely the NSTL will want to offer them as a long-term resource to Chinese universities. Consequently, ASHA members with professional and personal connections to China are urged to ask their colleagues there to view and download online content from the Journal of Speech, Language, and Hearing Research, the American Journal of Audiology, the American Journal of Speech-Language Pathology, and Language, Speech, and Hearing Services in Schools. For those Chinese institutions requiring a username and password for access, or for those Chinese scientists wishing to access ASHA’s journals off campus, the username is 2011nstl and the password is 2011cps.
