Doctoral Studies Committee

The Doctoral Studies Committee aims to gather information on doctoral studies (structure, content, procedures, expectations) in Translation Studies worldwide, in order to facilitate networking and joint degrees. The focus will be on research training programs (research methods , academic skills and transferrable skills).  In collecting and comparing information, the committee seeks to propose standards of good practice to the Executive Board.

This committee builds on the work done by the TS-DOC working group from 2007 to 2010. It works in two sections: a Steering Committee and an international Advisory Committee.
