Call for Papers
Studies of Translation and Interpretation
Volume 26 (2023)

Deadline: November 30, 2022

  1. About the Journal:
    Studies of Translation and Interpretation is published by the Taiwan Association of Translation and Interpretation. Since 1997 it has published one Spring volume annually and is currently indexed in TCI-HSS (Taiwan Citation Index - Humanities and Social Sciences) hosted by the National Central Library of Taiwan and ACI (Academic Citation Index). The journal has published exclusively online since Volume 16.
  2. Mission and Scope:
    We are an open-access journal that welcomes submissions on a rolling basis. Articles we accept include: original research and translation/book reviews. While our volume is not thematic, we would like to especially encourage submissions that challenge or subvert conventional thinking on the theory, practice, and pedagogy of translation and interpretation. We thus look forward to submissions that demonstrate bold and provocative alternatives—new concepts and different framings—that instigate change in how we valorize, evaluate, and teach the processes and products of translation and interpretation.
