About this book

This book draws on the perspectives of authors, supervisors, reviewers and editors to present a rich, nuanced picture of the practices and challenges involved in writing for scholarly publication. Organized into four sections, it brings together international experts and junior scholars from a variety of disciplines to examine both publishing experiences and current research in the field. In doing so, it challenges the view that Native English speakers have a relatively easy ride in this process and that it is only English as an Additional Language (EAL) scholars who experience difficulties. The volume highlights central themes of writing for publication, including mentoring and collaborative writing, the writing experience, text mediation, the review process, journal practices and editorial decision-making, and makes a strong case for taking a more inclusive approach to research in this domain. This edited collection will appeal to students and scholars of applied linguistics, English for academic purposes, academic writing, and second language writing.

Reviews

“The diversity of authorial, mentor, and editorial perspectives within the book will be of interest to a wide audience of stakeholders connected to academic publishing, none more so than novice (emerging) scholars. … For emerging scholars looking to get their research published in academic journals, this volume provides interesting reflections from experienced scholars (including journal editors), as well as emerging-experienced co-author teams.” (James N. Corcoran, ESP Today, Vol. 8 (2), 2020)

“This volume provides valuable insights into scholarly publication and will be an engaging and stimulating read for practitioners and researchers in the field of English for research publication purposes and beyond. It can serve as a useful guide for novice scholars and supervisors engaging or planning to engage in scholarly publication. It can also provide a valuable starting point for researchers interested in exploring issues related to scholarly publication.” (Lei Jun, Journal of English for Research Publication Purposes, Vol. 1, 2020)

“This book is no doubt a valuable resource for readers and researchers, particularly doctoral students and junior scholars, who are interested in issues related to writing for scholarly publication. The book will be most useful to research students and early career researchers, but it seems to have something for everyone who is interested in writing for international publication.” (Kimkong Heng, Australian Review of Applied Linguistics, Vol. 42 (3), 2019)
