About the Journal

Topics in Language Disorders (TLD) is a double-blind peer-reviewed topical journal that has dual purposes: (1) to serve as a scholarly resource for researchers and clinicians who share an interest in spoken and written language development and disorders across the lifespan, with a focus on interdisciplinary and international concerns; and (2) to provide relevant information to support theoretically sound, culturally sensitive, research-based clinical practices.

Indexing: Topics in Language Disorders is cited in Academic OneFile, Academic Search, Allied and Complementary Database, Cumulative Index to Nursing Administration and Health Literature (CINAHL), EBSCO, EMBASE, ERIC, Ex Libris, HINARI, JournalGuide, Linguistics and Language Behavior Abstracts, MLA International Bibliography, ProQuest, PsycINFO, Scopus, Social Sciences Citation Index, TDNet, and Web of Science.
