Selection Process for Conference Papers

At The Together Conference for Sign Language Interpreters and Translators, we upheld rigorous standards in selecting papers for presentation. Our selection process was designed to ensure diversity, relevance, and excellence in the topics addressed during the event. The original call for papers was open from the 8th of November 2023- the 8th of January 2024. 

Anonymous Review Rrocess

All submitted papers underwent a blind review process. This meant that reviewers evaluated the submissions without knowledge of the authors' identities, ensuring impartiality and fairness.

Alignment with Conference Themes and Aims

Each paper was assessed based on its alignment with the overarching themes and aims of the conference. We prioritised submissions that contributed meaningfully to the advancement of sign language interpreting and translation practices, as well as related topics in line with the conference theme of 'Moving our Professions Forward'.

Criteria-Based Evaluation

Our diverse panel of experienced deaf and hearing British Sign Language (BSL) and Irish Sign Language (ISL) interpreters and translators evaluated papers based on predefined criteria. These criteria encompassed factors such as originality, clarity, methodological rigour, and potential impact on the field.

Expert Panel

Our panel comprised individuals with considerable expertise in various domains within sign language interpreting and translation. Their collective experience ensured a comprehensive and insightful evaluation of each submission.
