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. Language Policy is a peer-reviewed
journal included in the Institute for Scientific Information (ISI) database. For more
information on the journal, please see:
