Doletiana is an on line international journal edited since 2007 by the research group ‘Étienne Dolet’ of the Department of Translation at the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. The aim of the publication is to stimulate critical thought about translation and to provide an impulse to discourse, creation and debate from a transdisciplinary perspective.
It publishes only thematic issues. Contributions should be submitted once we have defined and announced the theme of the issue. We also publish special issues proposed by guest editors (see below).
Doletiana accepts unedited contributions, written in French, English, Catalan or Spanish.
Manuscripts are subject to a double-blind peer review process.
The journal has an advisory board, consisting of distinguished experts in various scientific, literary and artistic fields, who collaborate in revisions and evaluations of the proposed work for publication.
Doletiana is listed in: Dialnet, DICE (Difusión y Calidad Editorial de las Revistas Españolas de Ciencias Sociales y Jurídicas), Latindex, MIAR (Matriu d’Informació per a l’Avaluació de Revistes), RACO (Revistes Catalanes amb Accés Obert), REBIUN.

Guest Editor Requirements
The main condition for accepting a guest editor’s proposals is that the content must deal with subjects related to translation in a transdisciplinary perspective and that the contents reflect cultural diversity and international languages and adapted to the criteria of the editorial. Priority is given to proposals which demonstrate originality of approach and are based on literary or interartistic corpus (*?), or connected with the creative aspect of writing.
Interested candidates must submit a 1-3 page summary detailing the characteristics of the project and an index of authors and titles planned in the initial phase (please fill in the proposal form below)
Proposals will be evaluated by the editorial board of Doletiana, which, if accepted, will stipulate the deadline for the synopsis of the issue to be submitted, the definitive list of contributors, as well as the date of delivery of the completed number.
If it is anticipated that some of the contributions of articles have a format that is different from the standard, it is the responsibility of the guest editor of the issue to present the materials already prepared for publication, and in all cases the candidate will mention this in the summary so that the advisory board may consider the feasibility of the proposal.
As guest-editor you will be expected to procure 2 double-blind peer reviews for each paper in the issue (this is not required for any introduction to the issue). These must be submitted along with the final version of the papers.
The peer review must be written using our pre-formatted forms which you will be provided with if your proposal is accepted.
All the papers must conform to our guidelines (see above)
As a general rule, an issue should contain no more than 12 papers.
The issue should be clearly organized around a theme which the Editor(s) will outline in the introduction.
The Editors of Doletiana reserve the right to reject any paper that they don’t consider to be of sufficient quality.
