Call for Articles

Dear FIT Community,

These continue to be uncertain times for all of us. The COVID-19 recovery will likely be longer and harder than any of us imagined. And yet, our member associations are finding ingenious ways to help their own members and share useful resources. In addition to the types of articles that we regularly publish, the Translatio Editorial Team would like to continue to use our platform to highlight FIT associations' efforts to support their members and help coordinate a response to these extraordinary circumstances.

As usual, articles can also be about initiatives underway at your association or organisation, past or upcoming conferences, Board elections, etc. Submissions should be no more than 500 words, and detailed submission guidelines may be found here. We also welcome your submissions of properly credited photos (subjects, association affiliations and photographer) to accompany your articles.

The deadline for submissions is 15 April 2020.

Past issues may be viewed here.

Please submit articles to

Thank you in advance!
The Translatio Editorial Team
