The Triological Society and John Wiley and Sons, Inc. announced today the launch of a new open access publication, Laryngoscope Investigative Otolaryngology. Laryngoscope Investigative Otolaryngology is a peer-reviewed open access journal focused on the rapid dissemination of the science and practice of otolaryngology head and neck surgery. The new title is a companion journal to The Laryngoscope and will publish high-quality, original research across the spectrum of basic and clinical otolaryngology.
The journal will publish contributions in the form of comprehensive reviews, research articles, clinical trials, short reports, in-depth perspectives, open-peer commentaries, theoretical and/or translational papers. Negative results and confirmatory studies may also be published as short communications. Laryngoscope Investigative Otolaryngology joins The Triological Society portfolio alongside the highly ranked journal The Laryngoscope as well as the monthly newsmagazine ENTtoday.
“Wiley is proud to extend its long-standing partnership with The Triological Society into the vital and rapidly growing area of open access publishing,” said Shawn Morton, Director of Society Journal Publishing, Health Sciences at Wiley. “Our aim is to work with the society to advance its mission of educating physicians involved in caring for patients with ear, nose and throat disorders. An open access journal enables rapid transfer of research findings into clinical practice.”
“For well over a century, Triological Society publications and presentations have served as bellwethers for the latest scientific and clinical information impacting Otolaryngology,” said Dr. Myles Pensak, Executive Vice President of The Triological Society. “In serving our colleagues, we recognize the importance of the widest delivery of contemporary scientific information in our field. It is with great excitement that we introduce Laryngoscope Investigative Otolaryngology and welcome our new Editor, Brad Welling MD PhD. On behalf of the Society, the efforts of many individuals committed to bringing this endeavor to fruition are sincerely recognized and appreciated.”
Dr. Welling currently serves as the Walter Augustus LeCompte Professor and Chair of the Harvard Department of Otology and Laryngology and is the Chief of Otolaryngology at Massachusetts Eye and Ear Infirmary and Massachusetts General Hospital.
