The Journal of Interactional Research in Communication Disorders aims to provide a unique forum for qualitative research relating to speech and language disorders, therapeutic and educational interactions, and for research into the contextual issues involved in these interactions. Additionally, the journal will include quantitative studies in the area of social interaction. The journal will publish wide-ranging, well-formulated clinical studies employing ethnographic methods, conversation analysis, grounded theory, case studies, phenomenology, biographical studies, and historical methodology. Research involving systemic functional linguistic theory or relevance theory, systemic and cognitive phonology, and interactional phonetics, is also encouraged. This journal is intended to fill a gap in the existing market of periodical literature. The journal will publish work that examines social interactions or institutional discourses that relate to clinical and educational populations and contexts. The emphasis will be on the areas of communication and socialization but this is seen as encompassing both verbal and non-verbal semiotic systems as well as issues of social roles and interactional dynamics. It is anticipated that research articles and reports will be the typical form of presentation in the journal. However, articles focusing on relevant theoretical issues and review articles will also have a place. Particularly in a journal with such cross-disciplinary potential, such extended reviews of certain background issues or theories may be very useful to the readership.
