“Mary Jane Curry, associate professor and director of language education at the University of Rochester’s Warner School of Education, together with Theresa Lillis, professor in English language and applied linguistics at The Open University in the United Kingdom, have co-authored the book A Scholar’s Guide to Getting Published in English: Critical Choices and Practical Strategies (Multilingual Matters, November 2013). Looking beyond linguistic and rhetoric strategies, the guide offers support to scholars in exploring the larger social practices, politics, networks, and resources that affect academic publishing. The guide also contributes to ongoing global debates around broader practices and politics about academic writing in a global context. For example, one of the widely debated issues addressed in the book is the growing open access movement to publish scholarly journals online…”

 Reviews:

This guide comes as a most welcome and useful complement to the majority of linguistic and rhetorical guides to writing for scholarly publication in that it focuses on helping scholars explore, identify and understand the social practices, politics, networks and resources involved in academic publishing. – Françoise Salager-Meyer, University of The Andes, Venezuela

If you wish to publish your research in English, or perhaps more of your research in English, then this succinct and practical guide will help you to ask the right questions and to come up with appropriate responses. – John M. Swales, University of Michigan, USA

This very clearly organised and written guide provides an excellent overview of the larger social practices, politics, networks and resources involved in academic publishing. In the process, it shows readers how to formulate and situate their research and gain access to publication in international refereed journals. I thoroughly recommend this book to more or less experienced scholars, both Anglophone and non-Anglophone, wanting to publish in international refereed journals. – John Flowerdew, City University of Hong Kong, Hong Kong
