Black History Month publications

Acoustics is a field that thrives on diverse perspectives, and the Acoustical Society of America (ASA) is steadfast in its commitment to fostering inclusivity. In alignment with this vision, the ASA asserts that everyone, regardless of their racial identity, ethnic background, gender, age, disability, religion, or national origin, deserves equal opportunities in the realm of acoustics, including access to published research. As a celebration of Black History Month, the ASA Publications Office is making select JASA articles authored by Minority/James West Fellows free to read throughout the month of February. ASA established a Minority Fellowship in 1992 with the goal of supporting minority students in their pursuit of graduate-level degrees in acoustics. The fellowship was renamed the James E. West Fellowship in 2018.



These articles not only contribute valuable insights to acoustical research, but also highlight the exceptional accomplishments of Minority/James West Fellows. The ASA looks forward to fostering continued inclusivity, collaboration, and dialogue within the acoustics community beyond Black History Month. Help us highlight the voices of black acousticians!
