In response to the rapidly changing translation training environment, New Voices in Translation Studies cordially invites research letters which explore the impact of COVID-19 on translation and interpreting training and offer innovative approaches and practices that are of interest to the translation and interpreting community. These letters will be published alongside the full-length articles already submitted to New Voices in Translation Studies earlier in the year for this Special Issue. With such contributions, the issue will represent the widest possible range of input from around the world on this rapidly changing environment, leading towards further research and debate.
Different from full research papers, research letters are concise and focused, consisting of 2500-3000 words (excluding references). They do not need to include either detailed background information or a comprehensive evaluation. Instead, the focus is on quick and timely publication of preliminary results and key elements of a research study. Research letters for this issue should contain a short abstract (50-100 words), a very limited introduction or discussion of the literature and a focus on the method and results. The number of references should not exceed 15.
