It is with excitement and optimism that we write this foreword as we begin our tenure as Co-Editors-in-Chief for Seminars in Speech and Language (SSL). The purpose of this foreword is to introduce ourselves as well as apprise readers of forthcoming changes to the journal. Before that, we want to extend a special thanks to the outgoing editors, Stacy Wagovich and Heather Harris Wright, who have been generous and kind with their time as we transition editorship. We also want to thank the editorial team at Thieme Publishers for their assistance with this transition while also seeing to transitions in the leadership at the publication office. We have special thanks for Kate Chaloux at Thieme Publishers who is the Executive Editor of SSL and has made this transition a team experience. We would like to acknowledge and extend thanks to the Editorial Board (, some of who are continuing in their role while others have recently joined.
