Loquens is a scientific journal published by CSIC and related to the Phonetics Laboratory of the CCHS, 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.

The Editors welcome proposals for specific subjects, and also offers from experts to act as guest editors for thematic issues.

Founded in 2014, it was born directly as an electronic journal publishing in PDF, HTML and XML-JATS.

Loquens is covered by Web of Science: Emerging Sources Citation Index (ESCI), SCOPUS, ERIH Plus, REDIB and other national and international databases. It is indexed in Latindex Catalogue 2.0 and has obtained the FECYT Seal of Quality.
