Dr. Ross J. Roeser of UT Dallas' Callier
RICHARDSON, Texas (Jan. 13, 2004) - Dr. Ross J. Roeser, executive director of the Callier Center for Communication Disorders at The University of Texas at Dallas (UTD), has been appointed editor-in-chief of the International Journal of Audiology , a leading professional publication in the science of hearing and hearing defects and their treatment that boasts a worldwide circulation.
Roeser's appointment, which begins this month, is for a four-year term that can be renewed once. He replaces Stig Arlinger, M.D., Ph.D., of the Linkoping University Hospital in Linkoping, Sweden.
"It is an honor and a privilege to be selected editor-in-chief of the International Journal of Audiology - a publication that has already gained a worldwide reputation and is positioned to become the premier publication for audiology and hearing science in the world," Roeser said. "I look forward to working with the journal's associate editors and editorial board in their efforts to keep readers informed of advancements in audiology research and clinical programs globally."
Roeser announced that Dr. Jackie L. Clark, a senior audiologist and faculty member at the Callier Center, will assume the position of managing editor of the publication. Clark will be responsible for the day-to-day operations of the journal.
The International Journal of Audiology was founded two years ago when three well-established audiology journals – Audiology, British Journal of Audiology and Scandinavian Audiology – were merged into a single worldwide publication. The three journals represented more than 100 years of publication of scientific and clinical work in hearing, hearing impairment, hearing science and audiology.
The International Journal of Audiology is committed to "furthering development of a scientifically robust evidence base for audiology … through publication of high-quality papers of relevance to the science and clinical practice of audiology and component disciplines," according to the publication's mission statement.
Roeser serves as a professor of communication sciences as well as executive director of the Callier Center, which is renowned for its clinical, educational and research programs in communication disorders. His research interests include the application of hearing instrument technology to improving communications skills. He has helped develop and evaluate tactile aids, cochlear implants and hearing aids, and has worked to define and expand the role of audiologists in the United States. He holds a Ph.D. degree in audiology and hearing science from Florida State University.
About the Callier Center
Established in 1962, the Callier Center for Communication Disorders is nationally recognized for advances in the treatment and prevention of hearing, speech and language disorders that affect individuals of all ages, from infants to seniors. The center is located on Inwood Road in Dallas, adjacent to such major medical facilities as The University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center at Dallas, St. Paul Hospital and Parkland Hospital. The center educates future clinicians and researchers, offers state-of-the-art clinical and educational services and conducts innovative research.
In late 2003, UTD opened a 23,500-square-foot satellite facility of the Callier Center on its campus in Richardson. The new facility offers many of the same services as the original Callier Center to residents of North Dallas and Collin County with speech, language or hearing problems.
The Callier Center is part of the university's School of Behavioral and Brain Sciences.
