Voice Classics Introduction

The Journal of Voice was launched in 1987 as successor to the transcripts of The Voice Foundation’s Annual Symposium: Care of the Professional Voice which were edited by Van L. Lawrence, MD and published by The Voice Foundation from 1977-1985. Over a period of more than three decades, the Journal of Voice has become the preeminent peer-reviewed publication in the field of voice. Its interdisciplinary content reflects the collaborative and creative nature of our field. Much of the evolution of voice as a discipline is reflected in seminal papers that were published in JOV. This series was created to make those publications available more easily for students and experts by collating articles by topic and publishing them as collections. A few articles cross disciplines and appear in more than one book in this series.

A reader interested in everything of consequence that has been published in JOV over the first three decades can turn to the book on his/her topic of interest (vocal fold motion disorders, therapy, history of the field of voice, and many others) and have available immediately all of the articles of consequence published on that topic in our journal over the first 30 years. These include many of the seminal articles that have functioned as keystones in the construction of our field.

We are indebted to the many members of the Editorial Board of the Journal of Voice and others who have volunteered their time to review everything published in the journal, select relevant articles and create the books in this series. We trust that these source readings will be valuable to our colleagues who are already experts in various fields within the discipline of voice, but especially to students seeking to understand how various disciplines within the field of voice evolved and to have access to the original works that led to the advances that we and our patients have enjoyed over the last few decades.
