Pakistan Journal of Languages and Translation Studies
Call Deadline: 15-Apr-2016
The Pakistan Journal of Languages and Translation Studies (PJLTS) is an annual peer refereed publication of the University of Gujrat, Pakistan, and its Centre for Languages and Translation Studies. Dedicated to provide an independent and trans-disciplinary forum for discourse on issues in Translation, Linguistics and related disciplines, PJLTS is recognized by Higher Education Commission, Pakistan. It deals with the rising questions in theoretical and practical translation and their social significance in the enrichment of national cultures of Pakistan. The trans-disciplinary nature of Translation Studies encourages researchers from fields like Art and History of Translation and its applications to various fields of knowledge and human endeavour, Linguistics, Language Learning, Comparative Literature, Literary History and Theory, Computational Linguistics, Machine Translation and Localization. We welcome research articles, empirical reports, reviews from the authors interested in any of these areas.
Paper Submission and Selection
The PJLTS is interested in the articles on emergent and challenging issues. All submitted papers are acknowledged quickly and reviewed as rapidly as possible. They are initially scrutinized by the Editors who decide whether they meet certain basic standards with respect to, for example, length, presentation, clarity and level of scholarship. Those papers that pass this initial scrutiny are sent out to referees who are carefully selected on the basis of their expertise. Once suitable referees are identified, they are normally asked to reply within a month. We follow blind peer-review system; the papers are reviewed by two researchers, one national and the other international; the reviewers' identities remain anonymous to authors. The review process may take up to two months.
Authors may contact the Editors at any time for information on the status of their papers. Submission of an article implies that the work described has not been published previously (except in the form of an abstract or as part of a published lecture or an academic thesis); it is not under consideration for publication elsewhere; its publication is approved by all authors and tacitly or explicitly by the responsible authorities where the work was carried out; and, if accepted, it will not be published elsewhere in the same form, in English or in any other language, without the written consent of the Editors. The Editors reserve the right to edit or otherwise alter all contributions. Manuscripts should be submitted electronically in MS-Word format to:
