New Submission Deadline - September 1st 2018!

Trends in Hearing is opening a special collection on tinnitus research that will include contributions of the 11th TRI/TINNET Conference 2018. Both research papers and reviews are considered for publication. The submission deadline is September 1st 2018. Given the comprehensive presence of tinnitus researchers from around the world at the TRI/TINNET conference, we expect this collection to be a strong representation of the progress in tinnitus research today.

All articles are rigorously peer-reviewed, brought to publication as rapidly as possible, and are freely available online immediately upon publication. Production costs are covered by Article Processing Charges (APC) paid by the author/institution/funder upon acceptance of the manuscript. There is no charge for submitting a paper to Trends in Hearing. Accepted manuscripts for this collection will be charged a one-time APC of $750 (discounted from the regular APC of $1000).

To submit, please go to:

We look forward to receiving your submissions.

Best regards,
