JAT is published two times per year, with one open issue (continuous publication) and one special issue (published in December).

The Journal of Audiovisual Translation occasionally publishes thematic sections in the regular issue which contain 3-6 articles. The aim of thematic sections is to bring out articles on a particular theme in order to enable new insights into topics relevant to audiovisual translation and media accessibility.

The language of publication is English. Submissions should be approximately 5,000 to 7,500 words. JAT does not publish reviews at this stage.
