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.
Laboratory Phonology has received an Impact Factor of 1.0 for the 2017 release (0.87 without self-cites, both up from 0.667 for last year; data from Journal Citation Reports), and is ranked 73/181 in the category of Linguistics (up from 90/182).

The program for LabPhon16 has been posted, along with the schedule for the five satellite workshops on June 19 and 23. The overarching theme of the conference is "Variation, development and impairment: Between phonetics and phonology" and the topics of the satellite workshops range from a "Tutorial on ultrasound evidence in phonology" to a workshop on "The role of predictability in shaping human sound systems". As the official journal of the Association for Laboratory Phonology, Laboratory Phonology is an ideal venue for work in this area, and the General Editor invites submissions of work presented at LabPhon16 or at its satellite workshops, as well as ideas for special collections of papers arising from the themes of the conference.
