Publishing a journal in English: tips for journal editors who are non-native English speakers

Ravi Murugesan | Mar 25, 2014 | 19,272 views

This article discusses tips for journal editors who are non-native English speakers and interested in transitioning their journal from a regional language to English.



Scientific researchers around the world are increasingly publishing in English. In parallel, local or regional scientific journals are also perhaps increasingly becoming English periodicals. I congratulate the editors of Science Editing for their efforts to bring this journal to the international stage by publishing articles in English. Nowadays, researchers who are non-native English speakers often recognize that they need some kind of assistance with the English language to become successful communicators of their work. Similarly, non-native English speaking (NNES) journal editors who wish to start publishing their journals in English may also benefit from more awareness of the language aspect of publishing. This article is aimed at NNES journal editors who wish to improve the standard of English in their journals.
