Participating in Academic Publishing:

Consequences of Linguistic Policies and Practices

Language Policy journal 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 (mjcurry at warner.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. Language Policy is a peer-reviewed journal included in
the Institute for Scientific Information (ISI) database.
