The mission of the American Journal of Audiology is to offer a peer-reviewed forum for presentation and discussion of clinical audiology research, methods, and issues, and to serve as an outlet for discussion of related professional and educational issues and ideas. The clinical orientation of the journal allows for the publication of reports on audiology as implemented nationally and internationally, including novel clinical procedures, approaches, and cases.
The 2011 Impact Factor is 0.867. AJA ranked 17th of 21 journals in the Audiology and Speech-Language Pathology category and 29th of 41 journals in the Otorhinolaryngology category.
An Editors' Award is presented yearly to the AJA editor's choice of the most meritorious single article appearing in the journal during the preceding calendar year. All winners since 1992 can be found in the AJA Editors' Awards collection.

The American Journal of Audiology (AJA) annually publishes summary statistics of acceptance/rejection rates and manuscript processing times. These summary statistics provide data on acceptance/rejection rates, frequently used by tenure/promotion committees, as well as average manuscript processing times, often of interest to contributing authors.
Table 1 shows the rates for acceptance and rejection for manuscripts receiving a final decision in 2009 through 2011, regardless of the year the manuscript was submitted originally. Accepted manuscripts are those for which a final decision to accept has been made. Rejected manuscripts are those that have been judged unsuitable for publication and for which no further revision or resubmission has been requested.
Figure 1 presents data for manuscripts that had completed the review process as of year-end 2011. The submission-to-decision interval is calculated from the date the editor's office receives the new manuscript to the date a first decision is made on the manuscript.
