The call for expressions of interest has gone out this week and is here
Here is the summary
In 2018 the world will celebrate the 70th anniversary of Universal Declaration of Human Rights (http://www.un.org/en/universal-declaration-human-rights/). Article 19 supports communication as a human right and states "Everyone has the right to freedom of opinion and expression; this right includes freedom to hold opinions without interference and to seek, receive and impart information and ideas through any media and regardless of frontiers."The email conversations I have had to date with potential authors has been very exciting.
The International Journal of Speech-Language Pathology will join the world in celebrating the 70th anniversary of this important document by publishing a special issue acknowledging that communication is a human right and exploring issues surrounding this claim.
Expressions of interest are sought from authors across the world in a variety of disciplines including (but not restricted to) speech-language pathology, linguistics, disability, multilingualism, law, journalism, literature, and communications.
