What is ENTRECULTURAS?

ENTRECULTURAS is a journal which has its origins in the Grupo Interuniversitario de Investigación en Traducción, Comunicación y Lingüística Aplicada (HUM 767) (Interuniversity Research Group on Translation, Communication and Applied Linguistics). Its intention is to contribute to the dissemination of translation studies in the Spanish language at international level.

In principle, for this first stage, we have adopted a number of decisions on the content of the journal and its editorial line as follows.

 

THE DISSEMINATION OF THE JOURNAL

The journal will in principle be disseminated on-line. With the publication of each journal number a mass email will be sent to Translation and Interpretation institutions, professors, students and professionals as to the effect of the availability of a new journal number and web address at which it can be consulted.

 

JOURNAL FREQUENCY

Number 1 (presentation of the journal) was published in 2009. ENTRECULTURAS is planned to publish on an annual basis, although some content of the web-portal which supports the journal will be updated monthly.

Exceptionally, several monographic numbers will be published on a half-yearly basis.

 

LANGUAGE OF PUBLICATION IN ENTRECULTURAS

The vehicular language of this journal is Spanish. However, publication proposals in English, French, Italian and Portuguese will be also considered.

All articles shall submit one abstract in Spanish and another in English without prejudice to the language in which the article is drafted.
