The journal Laboratory Phonology is the official journal of the Association for Laboratory Phonology. It publishes reports on the scientific study of all phonological / phonetic aspects of spoken and signed language through scholarly exchange across disciplines, including all domains of linguistics (phonology, phonetics, syntax, morphology, semantics, pragmatics) as well as from related disciplines, including psychology, speech & hearing science, communication science, computer science, electrical & computer engineering, and other related fields.
The journal started in 2010. The first six volumes were published by De Gruyter Mouton. The articles in these volumes are freely available here.

We at Laboratory Phonology are pleased to announce that we are now accepting submissions of registered reports.
A registered report is a type of publication in which the methods and analysis methods are proposed and peer-reviewed prior to data collection. Authors of registered reports initially submit a “Stage 1” manuscript providing the Introduction of the article, detailing the methods of the proposed study along with the results of any pilot experiments that motivate the research question(s), a sketch of how potential results will be interpreted in the General Discussion of the eventual article, and the intention to conduct the research within 1.5 years. Following assessment of the protocol by editors and reviewers (which may encompass more than one review round), the manuscript can then be offered in-principle acceptance, meaning that the journal virtually guarantees publication if the authors conduct the experiment in accordance with their approved protocol, and interpret/discuss the data as indicated. This “Stage 2” document should be submitted within 1.5 years after acceptance of the registered report. If the investigators depart significantly from their Stage 1 protocol in their Stage 2 resubmission, the Journal is under no obligation to accept the paper.
Registered reports may be submitted via the “Start Submission” button on the Submissions page on the journal’s website. Authors should indicate in the “Cover Letter” field that the submission is a registered report.
