How to publish in this journal


In today's academic and professional environment, the growth of specialised translation has resulted in the development of a significant area in Translation Studies. JoSTrans aims to create a forum for translators and researchers in specialised translation, to disseminate information, exchange ideas and to provide a dedicated publication outlet for research in specialised, non-literary translation. This international journal is indexed with the main abstract and citation databases of peer-reviewed literature, including the MLA International Bibliography (listed in the Directory of Periodicals), Translation Studies Bibliography, SCOPUS, and ERIH PLUS. Since 2016, it has also been indexed and abstracted by Clarivate (formerly Thomson & Reuters) in Arts and Humanities Citation Index, Current Contents/Arts & Humanities, Social Sciences Citation Index, Journal Citation Reports/ Social Sciences Edition, Current Contents/Social and Behavioral Sciences. JoSTrans is double-blind peer-reviewed. It is web-based to allow maximum flexibility and access. We accept contributions in a range of languages, including minority languages, to provide a publishing opportunity for researchers of all nationalities.
