Last week, we talked about how Lay Language papers are a great steppingstone towards writing a POMA, but did you know that the publication “path” can go even a bit further? As it turns out, publishing research in POMA is not considered prior publication for JASA or JASA Express Letters. That means you can build on the effort you made with your POMA, reaping the benefits of both publishing in POMA and in one of the ASA’s peer-reviewed journals.
Here are some recent examples of POMAs that helped pave the way for JASA or JASA Express Letters publications (pun intended).
- POMA: Time-domain simulation of acoustic scattering and internal propagation from two gas bubbles, by Jiacheng Hou, Zhongquan Charlie Zheng, and John S. Allen
JASA Express Letters: Time-domain immersed-boundary simulation of acoustic propagation between two spherical gas bubbles, by Jiacheng Hou and Zhongquan Charlie Zheng
- POMA: Low-frequency directional characteristics of a gamelan gong by Samuel David Bellows, Dallin T. Harwood, Kent L. Gee, Timothy W. Leishman
JASA: Directional characteristics of two gamelan gongs, by Samuel D. Bellows, Dallin T. Harwood, Kent L. Gee, and Micah R. Shepherd
- POMA: Design and realisation of a directional electric vehicle warning sound system, by Nikolaos Kournoutos and Jordan Cheer
- JASA: Investigation of a directional warning sound system for electric vehicles based on structural vibration, by Nikolaos Kournoutos and Jordan Cheer
- POMA: Applying unsupervised machine learning clustering techniques to hospital soundscapes, by Kenton Hummel, Erica Ryherd, and Bethany Lowndes.
JASA: Relating clustered noise data to hospital patient satisfaction, by Kenton Hummel, Erica Ryherd, Xiaoyue Cheng, and Bethany Lowndes
Give it a shot yourself! The next time you present at an ASA meeting (maybe Sydney?), write a POMA, then use it as a jumping off point for a JASA or JASA Express Letters article. Your research can start making an impact almost immediately in POMA, then be developed further in a peer-reviewed JASA or JASA Express Letters article. Don’t miss out on any of the options available to you! If you have any questions about the process of turning your POMA into a JASA or JASA Express Letters article, reach out to Liz Bury, Senior Managing Editor of the ASA.
