Translation Matters, from CETAPS’s strand Translationality indexed in SCOPUS

CETAPS’s strand on Translationality is delighted to inform you that its Translation Matters journal has been successfully indexed in SCOPUS, which is the leading abstract and citation database for peer-reviewed literature. This important milestone guarantees that the journal’s articles can be readily located when conducting searches related to translation and interpreting. Moreover, it empowers our authors to monitor the frequency of citations their work receives from other researchers. Huge thanks to our authors, peer-reviewers, copy-editors and advisory board for making all this possible!
Founded in 2019, Translation Matters explores all aspects of translation, ranging from the theoretical and descriptive to the practical and technical. It has worked, above all, as a platform for young researchers, a staging post in their trajectory to the wider world of international Translation Studies. Irrespective of the editorial decision, all authors are given constructive advice about how their articles can be improved. We look forward to your submission!

In 2024 CETAPS and IHC (NOVA FCSH) will host a conference dedicated to

Queen Elizabeth II: Life, Times, Legacies


The reign of the late Queen Elizabeth II (1952-2022) was the longest so far in the history of the British monarchy. Partly due, without doubt, to its exceptional duration, her seventy-year reign witnessed momentous events with far-reaching consequences, such as the end of the Empire; the decline of Britain on the international political scene; the ‘troubles’ and unrest within the British Isles and the prospect of a DisUnited Kingdom; the emergence and consolidation of popular and youth cultures and the relationship between the Crown and the media, to name but a few. The period is also of particular interest for Anglo-Portuguese Studies, as it raises issues such as the political relations between the two oldest allies during the Salazar/Caetano regime, the official visits, the impact of World War II, decolonisation, and the Revolution of the 25th April 1974, amongst others. This International Conference seeks to analyse and assess Elizabeth’s life, times, and legacies across a broad range of disciplines, themes and topics. (more)
