Multilingualism in Scholarly Communication

Multilingualism Survey

On behalf of the OPERAS-P project, Task “Innovative Models of Bibliodiversity in Scholarly Publications”, we would like to invite you to participate in a survey regarding “Multilingualism in Scholarly Communication”.

Given the growing need to strengthen the bonds between stakeholders involved in scholarly communication and multilingualism, this survey has a two-fold purpose:

(i) to have a better understanding of the role of multilingualism as an expression of bibliodiversity in scholarly communication;

(ii) to make a contribution to the conceptual design of a platform prototype for community-owned translation services at the scholarly communication level, involving the needs of publishers, translators, and researchers.

You may answer the survey by selecting a single profile, but you may also select two or even three, in the case that they all apply to your particular situation.

Each selected profile takes about 5 minutes to be filled. 

Link to the survey:

Your collaboration in answering and helping to disseminate the survey would be most appreciated. The survey is open until July 15

For further questions, please contact Delfim Leão (leo[a], also on behalf of the team members of OPERAS-P, Task “Innovative Models of Bibliodiversity in Scholarly Publications”
