Call for papers


Dear fellow researchers,

We are happy to announce a call for papers for our journal, INContext: Studies in Translation and Interculturalism.

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.

Since its launch in November 2021, INContext has published four issues, including a special issue in August 2022 dedicated to the theme of “Teaching and Practice of Distant Interpreting in the Pandemic Era,” guest-edited by Andrew K. F. Cheung.

We are open to submissions all year long, and suggestions on themes for special issues as well as ideas for manuscripts are always welcome.

For inquiries or suggestions, please contact our editor-in-chief, Ho-Jeong Cheong ( or our editorial team (
