Title: Reading and Writing
Publisher: Springer
LL Supporting Publishers
Description: Reading and writing skills are fundamental to literacy. Consequently, the processes involved in reading and writing and the failure to acquire these skills, as well as the loss of once well-developed reading and writing abilities have been the targets of intense research activity involving professionals from a variety of disciplines, such as neuropsychology, cognitive psychology, psycholinguistics and education. The findings that have emanated from this research are most often written up in a lingua that is specific to the particular discipline involved, and are published in specialized journals. This generally leaves the expert in one area almost totally unaware of what may be taking place in any area other than his own. Reading and Writing cuts through this fog of jargon, breaking down the artificial boundaries between disciplines. The journal focuses on the interaction among various fields, such as linguistics, information processing, neuropsychology, cognitive psychology, speech and hearing science and education. Reading and Writing publishes high quality scientific articles pertaining to the processes, acquisition, and the loss of reading and writing skills. The journal publishes research articles, critical reviews, theoretical papers, case studies, and book reviews. The journal also publishes short articles under `In Brief' section. Case studies and pilot reports with preliminary results may be suitable for publication in this section. Some topics that are appropriate for publication in the journal are: models of reading, writing and spelling at all age levels; orthography and its relation to reading and writing; computer literacy; cross-cultural studies; and developmental and acquired disorders of reading and writing.
