Survey of journal editors and authors

What challenges do East Asian authors face in the publication process and what perceptions do journal editors have of submissions from East Asian countries? This study, published in Learned Publishing of The Association of Learned & Professional Society of Publishers, presents and discusses the survey results, highlights gaps in the perspectives of authors and journal editors, and makes recommendations to bridge these gaps.

Abstract

Countries in East Asia—specifically China, Japan, and South Korea—are rapidly emerging as major contributors to global research output. However, owing to barriers in language and culture, it is possible that authors from these countries face unique challenges in getting published. Moreover, as submissions from these countries increase, journal editors may be able to spot some trends in the problems encountered when processing these submissions. This study presents the results of two surveys—one involving non-native English-speaking authors from East Asia and another involving international journal editors. The surveys were designed to throw light on the challenges East Asian authors face in the publication process and the perceptions journal editors have of submissions from East Asian countries. Here, we present and discuss the survey results, highlight gaps in the perspectives of authors and journal editors, and make recommendations to bridge these gaps.
