The Journal of Specialised Translation
Issue 23, January 2015
JoSTrans, The Journal of Specialised Translation, is an electronic, open-access peer-reviewed journal bringing non-literary translation issues to the fore. Published bi-annually since 2004, it includes articles, reviews, and streamed interviews by translation scholars and professionals. The journal is indexed with the main humanities bibliographies, including the ERIH (INT2), MLA, Benjamins Translation Studies bibliography, and St Jerome's Translation Studies Abstracts Online.
The Journal of Specialised Translation will publish the next non-thematic issue in January 2015. We invite innovative critical contributions dealing with any area or aspect of specialised translation, in particular:
- Features of specialised language
- General and practical issues in translation and interpreting
- Subject field translation issues, i.e. medical, legal, financial, multi-media, localisation, etc.
- Theoretical issues in specialised translation
- Aspects of training and teaching specialised translation.
We welcome contributions of full length papers (between 4k-7k words including endnotes and references), reviews (500-800 words) and shorter, more practical pieces for the Translator's Corner section of the Journal. The journal style sheet can be downloaded from http://www.jostrans.org/style.php.
We accept contributions in a range of languages, including minority languages, to provide a publishing opportunity for researchers of all nationalities. English abstracts are provided for all articles.
All contributions will be peer-reviewed.
Please send contributions to the editor-in-chief Lucile Desblache at firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line JoSTrans Issue 23 by 1st June 2014.
