The JOI reflects a broad, interdisciplinary approach to the interpretation and translation of languages.

Here is what one recent author had to say about publishing with the JOI:

“What was a real surprise to me was the quality of assistance, guidance, encouragement and know-how of everyone on your team. Even with the necessary anonymity, the reviewers' personal touches were evident. Together you and the team made this a remarkable process for me.” -Arlyn Anderson
