Topical Collection Information

Dear Colleagues,

For many decades, translational science has linked basic science discoveries with their clinical translation. The translational approach is also widely used in audiology, but the term “translational audiology” is much less commonly employed.

This Topical Collection aims to bring together publications on the latest developments and applications of translational audiology, both in the clinic and the research laboratory. The focus is on multidisciplinary research, as we can only progress by working together: audiologists, physicians, biologists, physicists, and representatives of many other scientific disciplines.

Additionally, in this current collection, we will pay special attention to the reproducibility of published data. We support increasing reproducibility through rigor and transparency as a key to implementing new research solutions through translational audiology. Following the guidelines of local, national, and international Reproducibility Networks is strongly encouraged.

We encourage submitting papers that address approaches for diagnosing, monitoring, and treating auditory or vestibular disorders via a translational approach. A rigorous translational approach to audiological studies is expected to accelerate progress in developing and implementing new innovative solutions for patients with hearing and balance disorders.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the collection website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.

Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Audiology Research is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.

Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1400 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
