Journal (JAIC)

Abstract Translations

JAIC abstracts are translated into three languages, Spanish, French, and Portuguese, by teams of dedicated volunteers. With the transition in our publishers and a change in process, the 2015 abstract translations have not been published with the articles. We will publish these translations on our website until they can be published along with the articles on the publisher website.

Translation Editors
  • Beatriz Haspo (Library of Congress, USA) 
  • Bruno Pouliot (Winterthur Museum Garden and Library, USA)
  • Amparo Rueda (APOYOnline, Colombia)
