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.
