Important Announcement - August 2,
IEEE and ACM are pleased to announce that
the IEEE Transactions on Audio, Speech, and Language
Processing and the ACM Transactions on Speech
and Language Processing will be published jointly as
the IEEE/ACM Transactions on Audio, Speech, and
Language Processing, starting January 2014.
Papers from the new Transactions will appear in both IEEE
Xplore and the ACM Digital Library. Publication will be
managed by IEEE as a hybrid journal, allowing either
traditional or open access manuscript submission. The new
journal welcomes novel contributions in all areas covered
by the two journals, which includes audio, speech, and
language processing and the sciences that support them.
Charter and Scope
ACM Transactions on Speech and Language Processing
practical areas of the design, development, and evaluation
and text-processing systems along with their associated
publishes application-oriented research, survey papers,
descriptions of novel applications. TSLP reviewers place
the originality and the applicability of submissions.
Example topics within TSLP's scope include:
- Natural language understanding, generation, and parsing
- Dialog management
- Machine translation
- Document summarization
- Question answering
- Detection and tracking of entities, relationships, topics, and novelty
- Language modeling for machine translation and speech recognition
- Speech prosody
- Audio indexing
- Spoken document retrieval
- Machine learning and pattern analysis applied to the above
TSLP is an electronic quarterly journal with an annual printed volume for library archival. TSLP editors will try to return reviews for a submission in each review cycle within three months of receipt of the submission. It is expected that the average turnaround time will be even shorter.
Papers will appear online, without page numbers, immediately upon acceptance ahead of quarterly publication dates. They will become part of the ACM Digital Library after the publication date of the issue in which they appear.
New options for ACM
manage rights and permissions for their
work: ACM introduces a new publishing license
copyright transfer agreement, and a new author-pays option
for perpetual open access through the ACM Digital Library.
