Dear Colleagues,
It’s our pleasure to introduce the first issue of our new journal:  Arab World English Journal for Translation & Literary Studies (AWEJ-tls) http://awej-tls.org/  which will be devoted to publishing high quality original articles in the field of translation and literary studies around the globe. AWEJ-tls is a new online sister journal to AWEJ. As a publication whose goal it is to generate new knowledge about translation, literature and related fields such culture and linguistics. It is a refereed international journal which follows a double-blind peer review process and it is based upon an Open Access Model that provides free availability of research papers and It is hosted by Arab Society of English Language Studies (ASELS). http://asels.org/
We emphasize that AWEJ-tls is open to all scholars throughout the entire world, no matter  what their nationalities or background. We believe that AWEJ-tls will better meet the needs of more authors and readers in the fields of translation and literature than AWEJ can achieve alone. We hope AWEJ-tls will meet our community’s needs in the region and beyond. We now aim to expand our circle of readers and contributors.  It is our hope that you will take this opportunity to notify other scholars at your institute of our presence.
Last, I would like to take this opportunity to extend our heartfelt thanks to our hard-working and dedicated team for their great efforts, useful contributions and constructive comments towards the development of the journal. At the same time, I am pleased to warmly welcome those colleagues who joined us on the Board of Editors and the Board of Reviewers.

Kind Regards,
