JASA will be a fully-online journal


Here is an announcement received from our colleague (and former president of the CAA),  Stan Dosso: JASA will be a fully-online journal by 2025!





I am writing to give you advance notice that the Acoustical Society of America (ASA) will cease publication of printed (paper) issues of the Journal of the Acoustical Society of America (JASA) in January 2025, after which JASA will be a fully-online journal.


There are several reasons for this:

  • The number of ASA members and institutions choosing JASA in-print has been steadily decreasing over many years and is now very small relative to the total number of subscriptions;
  • Discontinuing JASA in-print will provide a significant cost savings for the ASA in printing and postage charges;
  • Discontinuing JASA in-print will also eliminate the in-print color figure charges, making the journal more author-friendly and better configured for Read & Publish institutions;
  • Reducing paper printing is more environmentally friendly.


Please also note that the ASA will also no longer print paper issues of conference programs for similar reasons. PDF versions of the full programs will be available, and the ASA website and interactive apps will be available for improved meeting information.


Acoustically yours,
