development in the field of study suffer. The aim of this paper is to find out whether
publications in the area of speech and language therapy are adequate. A computer-aided
electronic search was made using Ebscohost database. Scientific articles published within
2011 and 2016 in the area of speech and language therapy were sought in three
representative developed as well as three developing countries. Results show that
publications in the area of speech and language therapy are not adequate. It is therefore
