• How is the fact that web readers are now web users (listeners, viewers, interactive contributors as well as readers) affecting publications in translation?
• How are we, translation scholars, responding to this change? Online publishing is not only growing; recent research shows that web users are attracted to specialised sites rather than large portals.
• How does this manifest in Translation Studies? Traditionally, academic publications have been scholarly rather than vocationally oriented. Does the move toward electronic publication change this balance?
We shall attempt to answer these questions discussing a range of current electronic publications in Translation Studies, with particular focus on JoSTrans, The Journal of Specialised Translation.
