How do we produce the monthly collection of plain-language research reviews for speech–language pathologists? Learn more below.
Read & Write
Scout: We first hand-search hundreds of journals each month, reading abstracts, and identifying all the newly-published research within our scope of practice.
Read & Write: We then read the articles, keeping only the ones that have clinically actionable take-homes. We review (write up a commentary on) them, and provide links to the original research.
Quality Control: Before sharing with you, all content goes through 2–4 additional internal staff. Reviews are additionally sent to the original journal article author (other content categories, below, are not).
Publish: By the end of each month, we have new issues ready for you, available in print, audio, and online formats!

This happens when journals repeatedly publish one or fewer articles relevant to speech–language pathology, across four+ months of scouting. Journals that publish no articles relevant to speech–language pathology over the course of a year are removed from the list entirely.
We search keywords each month as well and have Google Scholar alerts set up to find articles. Over time, these searches give us the data needed to add more journals to the list above. However, we search certain terms every single month, as some topics are published in so many different journals that keyword searches make more sense than adding those journals to our scouting list.
All journals were added to our list via one or more of the following methods:
So do you review ALL the articles published in each of these journals, every month?
Once TISLP points me toward an article I should read, how do I get the full-text article?
The reviews describe original research. How do I know that the research is interpreted correctly? What are your quality control procedures?
What if I have questions or input regarding your procedures?
Why do you need my billing address?
Our records indicate your billing address is not on file, and we need this for tax purposes. We will not use your address for anything other than tax record keeping. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions.
