Although the journal’s nature and aims call for inclusiveness, it is our belief that this need not be at the expense of quality and rigour. In terms of writing style, our emphasis shall be on readability, and in terms of content, it shall be on well thought-out and novel contributions to the field. The journal’s scope will be broad in the sense that it will cover all areas within translation studies, understanding translation in its broadest sense – including, but not restricted to, human and computer-aided translation, machine translation, oral and sign language interpreting, dubbing and subtitling. The journal will not be restricted to any particular school of thought or methodology.
New Voices in Translation Studies will publish high quality, fully refereed articles which have gone through the processes of peer review and, where appropriate, such revision as is recommended by the reviewers. Articles submitted to New Voices will be reviewed by one new researcher and one established scholar, both of whom shall be members of the Advisory Panel. Alternatively other qualified researchers will be selected by the panel. Only whole articles will be reviewed - not abstracts or summaries. Articles for review will be anonymised wherever possible. The comments provided to authors by the reviewers will be constructive and helpful and designed to aid authors in producing articles of a publishable standard.
In accordance with our aims, preference will be given to articles submitted by new researchers, although we may occasionally publish articles by more established scholars. We understand the concepts of 'new' and 'established' in relation to 'researcher' not as two distinct and opposed categories but as degrees in a continuum reflecting the amount of experience gained by the researcher in the course of their career. Any attempt to establish concrete limits around each concept would not only be extremely difficult but also counter-productive, given that the aim of the journal is to bring the two extremes of the continuum closer and not to reinforce their differences. However, for reasons of transparency and clarity, we have established a set of criteria to help us make decisions regarding the issue of who qualifies as a 'new researcher':
The above shall serve only as guidelines and not as strict rules. The editors shall reserve their right to make decisions according to the particularities of each case under consideration.
The language of the journal will be English. However, in line with the IATIS's multilingual policy, we would like to encourage authors to submit the abstracts of their articles as well as PhD abstracts in another language in addition to English. If provided, the abstracts will not only be published in the journal but also will be contributed to the expanding TraduXio-IATIS Space, an online collaborative and multilingual translation tool set up by IATIS to create, store and share abstracts on academic conference papers and articles.
The book review should be written in English and should be of 1500 to 2000 words in length. It should be composed of a summary of the contents of the book and a critical evaluation showing its relevance to specific areas of translation studies. Please follow the guidelines in the style-sheet of New Voices. To download the style-sheet, click HERE.
The following details of the book reviewed should be provided:
All reviews should be submitted by email to [newvoices(at)dcu.ie].
Please note that, as specified in the Editorial Policy, preference will be given to contributions by researchers new to the field. However, contributions from more experienced researchers will also always be welcome.
The advisory panel will always keep a balance of new researchers and established scholars. The composition of the panel will be reviewed regularly to make sure that this remains the case.

Since it was launched at the inaugural conference held in Seoul in August 2004, the International Association for Translation and Intercultural Studies (IATIS) has put in place a number of publication initiatives under the general editorship of its Publications Committee.

Please note: IATIS conferences do not publish proceedings; conference panel chairs may call for papers for inclusion in an IATIS yearbook however, and conference participants are also encouraged to publish their work in refereed journals, or in any publication that is appropriate to their own academic environment.
The IATIS Yearbook 2005, Translation and the Construction of Identity, is one of the two types of volumes based on papers presented at the IATIS Inaugural Conference, held in Seoul in August 2004. It consists of a thematically coherent collection of papers on the theme of‘Identity’ edited by Professor Juliane House (Hamburg),>Dr Rosario Martín Ruano (Salamanca) and Dr Nicole Baumgarten(Hamburg).
This book examines the role of translation as a politically and socially active phenomenon which moulds and potentially alters the outcome of many types of communicative event. The contributors examine the effect of translation and intervention in a range of situations and case studies including the European Union, marginalized literature in India, Arabic historical texts and interpretation in the South African courtroom. The result is a comprehensive examination of this key question in translation studies: to what extent and in which ways does the translator, and those involved in the translation process, intervene in the discourse he or she translates? Translation as Intervention is a fascinating collection of essays discussing this most central of topics in translation studies. It will be of interest to postgraduates and academics researching in this area.
As a research area, education in the fields of translation and interpreting has received growing attention in recent years, with the increasing professionalization of the language-mediation sector demanding ever more highly trained employees with broader repertoires. This trend is evidenced in the present collection, which addresses issues in pedagogy in a variety of translation and interpreting domains. A global range of contributors discuss teaching, evaluation, professionalization and competence as they apply to an array of educational and linguistic situations. Translator and Interpreter Training: Issues, Methods and Debates presents an in-depth consideration of the issues involved in this area of translation and interpreting studies, and will be of interest to all students and academics working and researching in the field.
