Call Deadline: 15-Apr-2011

Second and final call for Papers on Participating in Academic Publishing:
Consequences of Linguistic Policies and Practices

Language Policy is planning a thematic issue on how policies at local,
national, and transnational levels are enacting and enforcing the high
status of English academic publishing and the impact of such policies on
scholars and students, research and teaching, and institutional practices
in different geographical contexts. English is often viewed as the lingua
franca of scholarly publishing in many disciplines, particularly in the
sciences and social sciences. The rise of English as the presumed global
medium of scholarly publication has resulted in both obvious and less
obvious consequences for individual scholars and for the enterprise of
knowledge production. We invite empirical and theoretical papers that
examine the effects and enactments of these policies and explore the
consequences for knowledge making globally.

Deadline for abstracts: April 15, 2011

For consideration for this issue, please send an abstract of up to 300
words to Mary Jane Curry (mjcurrywarner.rochester.edu), who will co-edit
the issue with Theresa Lillis. For empirical papers, the abstract should
identify the geolinguistic context of the research, the research
question/focus, the theoretical framing, and a synopsis of findings. For
theoretical papers, the abstract should describe the issue under
consideration, the theoretical framing, and the conclusions to be drawn. If
the abstract is accepted, you will be invited to submit a paper due January
1, 2012, which will undergo normal peer review procedures. The issue is
scheduled for publication in early 2013.
