Babel is a scholarly journal designed primarily for translators, interpreters and terminologists (T&I), yet of interest also for nonspecialist concerned with current issues and events in the field. The scope of Babel is intentional and embraces a multitude of disciplines built on the following pillars: T&I theory, practice, pedagogy, technology, history, sociology, and terminology management. Another important segment of this journal includes articles on the development and evolution of the T&I professions: new disciplines, growth, recognition, Codes of Ethics, protection, and prospects. The creation of Babel was proposed on the initiative of Pierre-François Caillé, founding president of the Fédération Internationale des Traducteurs (FIT) and approved by the first FIT Congress of 1954 in Paris. Babel continues to be published for FIT and each issue contains a section dedicated to THE LIFE OF FIT. Articles for Babel are normally published in English or French but we also accept articles in Arabic, Chinese, German, Italian, Russian and Spanish. Babel is published for the International Federation of Translators (FIT).
Target promotes the scholarly study of translational phenomena from any part of the world and welcomes submissions of an interdisciplinary nature. The journal’s focus is on research on the theory, history, culture and sociology of translation and on the description and pedagogy that underpin and interact with these foci. We welcome contributions with a theoretical, empirical, or applied focus. We especially welcome papers on topics at the cutting edge of the discipline, as well as shorter positioning statements which may encourage discussion by contributors to the “Forum” section of the journal. The purpose of the review section is to introduce and discuss the most important publications in the field and to reflect its evolution. Target now also publishes translations of its articles and reviews into multiple languages which are linked to the original article, bringing into practice the journal’s core topic and honoring multilingualism.
Dietética e Nutrição
The most highly rated peer-reviewed, primary research journal in nutrition and dietetics, The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition (AJCN) publishes the latest research on topics in nutrition, such as obesity, vitamins and minerals, nutrition and disease, and energy metabolism.
The purpose of AJCN is to publish original research studies relevant to human and clinical nutrition. Well-controlled clinical studies that describe scientific mechanisms, efficacy, and safety of dietary interventions in the context of disease prevention or a health benefit will be considered. Public health and epidemiologic studies relevant to human nutrition, and innovative investigations of nutritional questions that employ epigenetic, genomic, proteomic, and metabolomic approaches are encouraged. Solicited editorials,book reviews, solicited or unsolicited review articles, invited controversy position papers, and letters to the Editor that relate to prior AJCN articles are essential components of the AJCN. All submitted material with scientific content will undergo peer review by the Editors or their designees before acceptance for publication.
With more than one quarter of all occupational therapists currently working in educational settings, the absence of a comprehensive resource on research and issues related to school-practice has been a problem for practitioners who don’t have ready access to university libraries. The Journal of Occupational Therapy, Schools & Early Intervention provides a much-needed single source for articles that examine innovative practice methods, strategies for effective decision-making, and the latest evidence-based research findings consistent with current professional policies and guidelines. This unique, peer-reviewed journal focuses on early intervention and schools but also includes other settings (home, clinics, juvenile justice system) to help promote the seamless transition of effective services for children and adolescents.
The Journal of Occupational Therapy, Schools & Early Intervention translates policy into practice with research findings, opinion pieces, and “how-to” articles that examine topic areas including early intervention, preschool, elementary, and secondary, as well as general areas including administration, theory, continuing competency, and advocacy. In addition, the journal presents regular features on documentation tips, grants and funding, adaptive equipment, therapy activities, administration and work design, and Internet resources, reviews therapy “tools” (books, software, etc.), and keeps you posted on disability updates, as well as policy changes and changes in legislation.
The Journal of Occupational Therapy, Schools & Early Intervention also devotes entire issues to vital topics that require more in-depth examination, including:
- assistive technology in early intervention and schools
- evidence-based practice
- play and leisure
- communities of practice and collaboration
The Journal of Occupational Therapy, Schools & Early Intervention is an essential resource for OTs working in early intervention and schools, an invaluable training tool for OT educators and administrators, and a helpful guide for anyone involved in the service design and implementation of programs for children and adolescents with disabilities.
Peer Review Policy: All research articles in this journal have undergone rigorous peer review, based on initial editor screening and anonymous refereeing by two anonymous reviewers.
