Medwave and Kriyadocs: A technology-based workflow for bilingualism from submission to publication for a medical journal, Ravi Venkataramani, CEO, Kriyadocs; Dr. Vivienne C. Bachelet, Founder and Editor-in-Chief, Medwave Medwave, a bilingual, peer-reviewed, open access biomedical and public health journal, and Kriyadocs, an ecosystem for scholarly publishers that manages publishing workflows end-to-end, collaborated to design a fully bilingual peer review and production platform that enables the simultaneous publication of Spanish and translated English articles. This collaboration streamlines the publication process and ensures consistency throughout the production of articles, making medical research accessible to a broader audience. Additionally, this partnership promotes cross-cultural exchange and understanding within the scientific community by providing a comprehensive platform for Spanish and English-language publications. The bilingual workflow model also serves as a blueprint for future endeavors in multilingual publishing, paving the way for more accessible, collaborative, and culturally diverse scientific communities.
Multilingualism in Ibero-America Scholarly Publishing: Translation, Regions and Languages, Édgar García Valencia, Universidad Veracruzana Academic publishing in Ibero-America has been the subject of research within the project "Cartography of Academic Publishing", which examines the editorial production documented by ISBN agencies in Latin America and Spain since 2013. Among the various topics investigated by the project, multilingualism holds particular significance. Therefore, this study aims to provide an overview of scientific publications in Spanish, their coexistence with other regional languages, and the extent to which books from other countries are incorporated through translation into Latin American markets. Can we consider this an exchange? Is it possible to discuss the market for books in their original or translated languages? These are some of the questions that we will address in this exploration.
