Perspectives Publications Ordering Procedures

Special Interest Group Affiliation

ASHA Members

The opportunity to join a Special Interest Group (SIG) is a value-added benefit of ASHA membership and affiliation. Subscription to Perspectives, the SIG publication, is free to affiliates. Information about individual groups and SIG benefits and fees can be found on the ASHA Web site.

Access to full-text content of Perspectives is provided through an account. Once an individual has joined a SIG, an account is created. The affiliate then activates the account online to gain full-text access.


SIG affiliation is not open to individuals who are not ASHA members or affiliates; information on membership categories can be found on the ASHA Web site.

Only individuals can join a Special Interest Group (there are no organizational/institutional memberships).

Individual/Organizational Subscriptions

Cost of Subscriptions

Perspectives subscription prices are available for institutions and individuals. Archives are also available for purchase.

Note that subscription to Perspectives on Audiology is not an independent publication. Access to this publication is included with subscription to any one of the four groups devoted exclusively to audiology issues.


All current subscriptions to Perspectives include:

  • 3 years of online content, defined as the current year plus the previous 2 years (i.e., a 2015 subscription includes 2014 and 2013 online content).
  • ongoing, perpetual access to this online content regardless of whether a subscription is renewed in subsequent years.
  • complimentary subscription to Perspectives on Audiology for any subscription to Perspectives published by any one of the four audiology-focused groups(SIGs 6, 7, 8, and 9).

The Online Archive is defined as back issues of Perspectives.

  • The archive contains online content from 1997 up to 3 years prior to the current subscription. For example, an Online Archive purchased in 2015 contains content from 1997 through 2012.
  • The archive is a one-time purchase that gives the customer perpetual access to the above content.
  • In addition, because the archive is a one-time purchase, the customer will be given access to an additional year of content, at no additional cost, as the archive grows each year.
  • A current subscription is not required to gain access to the archive once it is purchased. In other words, you may purchase the Online Archive as a stand-alone product. Each year, an additional year's worth of content will be added to the archive, at no cost.
  • A complimentary subscription to the archive for Perspectives on Audiology is included for any subscription to an archive of Perspectives published by any one of the four audiology-focused groups (SIGs 6, 7, 8, and 9).
