Ear & Hearing is Going Green!
Did you know that Ear & Hearing is going green in January of 2015 and will only be available as an online-only journal?
Online-only publication is better for you as you get articles:
  • faster
  • integrated with datasets and audio files (if available)
  • accessible forever in a digital format
  • available on mobile channels everywhere (including the Ear & Hearing App for iPad)

and no trees are harmed in the production process!


In 2015, only AAS members will be able to choose to keep receiving a print copy for an additional $82.50 payable to the AAS.


Look for 2015 membership renewal information coming in September!

2014 Conference Summary

We recently completed our 2014 meeting and are pleased that we added another success to a history that builds on many years of a world-class gathering of clinicians and scientists.  With the support of a Grant from the National Institute on Deafness and Other Communication Disorders of the NIH, the program included outstanding interdisciplinary Translational Research Lectures and an inspiring Young Investigator Lecture.  Another highlight of the meeting was the Carhart Memorial Lecture, a long-standing tradition of the AAS. Dr. Eric D. Young, PhD, presented an outstanding lecture on 'Changes in Central Auditory Processing Following Acoustic Trauma'.


More information about the 2014 meeting along with the full program and all abstracts for podium and poster presentations can be found on the AAS website.
