About the Journal
INContext is a unique international and interdisciplinary journal that encourages innovative research in language-related subjects, including but not limited to technical or literary translation and conference interpretation as well as intercultural issues.
Aim and Scope
INContext is a collaborative journal bringing together the Korean Association for Public Sector Translation and Interpretation (KAPTI), the Language and Intercultural Studies Institute (LISI), Universitas Gadjah Mada (UGM) and the Hong Kong Polytechnic University (PolyU).
INContext is a unique international and interdisciplinary journal that encourages innovative research in language-related subjects, including but not limited to technical, scientific and literary translation and conference interpretation as well as intercultural studies such as cultural studies, gender studies, race and cultural identity.
INContext publishes original research articles with a theoretical, empirical or applied approach. Specifically, submissions will be appreciated to widen the scope of research; propose innovative research methodology; offer meta-reviews of theoretical formulations and prospects of different approaches; link translation studies with intercultural studies; and provide a macro perspective of issues we are already familiar with. In addition to the regular issues, proposals for special issues will be considered by the editor.
Only quality papers that meet the standards of INContext will be reviewed. After an initial screening by the editor, all submissions will undergo a rigorous double-blind peer review. While the official language of INContext is English, submissions in other languages will be considered by the editor.
Guidelines for Contributors
INContext welcomes articles relevant to the Aim and Scope of the Journal throughout the year. The submission instructions and guidelines can be found on the Journal’s Submissions page.
