Loquens is a scientific publication put out by the Phonetics Laboratory of the Spanish National Research Council (CSIC) and dedicated to analyzing speech from all angles and considering all points of view. The approach is clearly interdisciplinary and is proposed as a tool for the diffusion of the developments from those areas of study where speech analysis is the focus.

The Journal welcomes theoretical and applied papers in the areas of experimental and general phonetics and theoretical and experimental phonology, vocal science, information and communication technologies related to voice and speech sciences, speech pathologies and clinical phonetics, forensic phonetics, pronunciation teaching, voice performance and radio / TV broadcasting, etc. Special attention is given to those papers with a strong interdisciplinary and cross-curricular emphasis, since the journal's primary goal is to highlight the possible interconnections between the abovementioned fields and to state the advantages gained from addressing speech from various perspectives. Furthermore, squibs (short studies, comments or answers to previously published papers) are provided to facilitate the discussion of ideas among the collaborators.

Loquens is an open-access journal available under the terms and conditions of the Creative Commons License. Articles are double-blind peer- reviewed by at least two independent experts.

Loquens is a biannual online publication with issues in January and July. One of these two issues is occasionally devoted to a particular subject. The editors welcome proposals for specific subjects, and also offers from experts to act as guest editors for thematic issues.

The Journal is covered by ERIH Plus and REDIB.
