As announced in the Editorial in the April 2023 issue of The Journal of the Acoustical Society of America (JASA), JASA Express Letters is now partnering with JASA for joint Special Issues.
Authors now have the option to select which journal they would like to submit a paper to for a Special Issue. Accepted papers will be published in the next available regular issue of the selected journal and identified as belonging to the Special Issue. After all papers have published for the Special Issue, they will be included in a cross-journal online collection at the JASA and JASA Express Letters websites.
Verification and Validation of Source and Propagation Models for Underwater Sound
This Special Issue invites papers on the verification (model-model comparison) and validation (model-measurement comparison) of marine sound source and propagation models, as well as papers on metrics for calculating the dose on marine species. …Read More!

Acoustic Cue–Based Perception and Production of Speech by Humans and Machines
This Special Issue invites interdisciplinary submissions on modeling human speech perception and production in difficult and varying conditions, papers that aim at bridging the gap between speech science and engineering by attempting to improve machine-based systems, and especially welcome submissions in the spirit of Stevens’ approach to accounting for and/or integrating articulatory, acoustic, and phonological theory, and studies that address fundamental unsolved issues in human speech processing. …Read More!

Wave phenomena in periodic, near-periodic, and locally resonant systems
This Special Issue presents recent advances on periodic, near-periodic, and locally resonant vibroacoustic systems, covering fundamental aspects of the theory of multiple wave scattering to experimental studies that demonstrate performance and potential applications of the systems. …Read More!

Iconicity and Sound Symbolism
This Special Issue aims to advance our understanding of the rich and complex nature of sound symbolism. We invite interdisciplinary contributions that go beyond the investigation of dichotomous phonological categories and embrace sound symbolism as a continuous phenomenon of acoustic and/or articulatory properties in human and non-human communication and their resemblance with all kinds of properties. …Read More!

Advances in Soundscape: Emerging Trends and Challenges in Research and Practice
This Special Issue invites submissions that focus on the human perception of sounds in built or natural environments, or the impacts that human activities can have on those, and help advancing the field either theoretically or methodologically. …Read More!
Guest Editors: Francesco Aletta, Bhan Lam, Cynthia Tarlao, Tin Oberman, Andrew Mitchell

Assessing Sediment Heterogeneity on Continental Shelves and Slopes
This Special Issue presents recent advances in experimental measurements, theoretical models, and application of information-based signal processing and machine learning to assess the degree to which seabed heterogeneity can be characterized. …Read More!
