Translation Studies

A subject guide for the UCL Centre for Translation Studies (CenTraS) at SELCS

Journals and e-journals

Translation studies journals are primarily available electronically and they can found by searching the library catalogue.

Here a list of key journals in your subject area:

The library subscribes to print journals, also referred as periodicals, for some subjects such as languages. Print Journals are usually Reference only, this means they cannot be borrowed. You can find recent issues of print journals on the open shelves while older volumes are kept at STORE and have to be requested, in advance, either via the library catalogue or the Stores request form.

More on journal articles

If you know the title of the article you need, you can enter it directly in the Explore search box. If UCL Libraries have an electronic subscription to the journal in which the article is published, this will appear in your results list and you can download the full-text following the instructions provided.  The same applies if you're looking for a journal article using one of the many article-specific UCL Databases. 

Can't find full-text?

UCL has an amazing collection of electronic resources, but no library can have full-text access to everything. If you identify a piece of information that would be beneficial to your research, the library will try and source a copy for you via the Inter Library Loans service.You can make a request by logging into UCL Explore and then clicking on the three dots 'show more' menu to access the Inter Library Loan Request form.
