JARO is a peer-reviewed journal that publishes research findings focused on the auditory and vestibular systems. JARO welcomes submissions describing original experimental research that investigates the mechanisms underlying problems of basic or clinical significance.
Clinical case studies, pharmaceutical screens and methods papers are not encouraged unless they include significant new findings as well. Commentaries and reviews are published at the discretion of the editorial board; consult the editor-in-chief before submitting.
Accepted papers are copyedited and rapidly published in Online First, from which they are accessible via the Springer website and on PubMed before being bundled in an online issue (six per year beginning in 2011), with notification to subscribers. For the convenience of authors, Springer deposits all final manuscripts with PubMed Central at the time of Online First publication, with a one- year embargo. Alternatively, one may participate in Springer’s Open Choice program for full open access privileges.
