Scientific Truth in Audiology: The process - Prof. Ross J. Roeser, Professor of Audiology, Callier Center for Communications Sciences and Disorders, University of Texas at Dallas.

In general, truth is considered to be fact or reality; truth implies fidelity. Scientific truth is considered one of the highest levels of knowledge, because it is revealed through a well-defined, structured system that brings what was previously hidden into the open. Valid scientific truth is derived through a peer review process, which should be carried out with the utmost care and consideration. The peer review process as it is applied to audiological truth dates back more than a century when the Journal of the Acoustical Society of America was first published. Through the peer review process selected experts are asked to judge the quality and validity of work submitted by peers, with the goal of allowing the work to be disseminated to the public. This presentation will review the intricate processes of peer re-viewing, as it relates to audiology.
