19 Jul Workshop on language barriers to academic publishing now available on YouTube
We successfully organised a workshop on language barriers to academic publishing on 7th July.
The workshop had two major objectives. In the first half, Editors-in-Chief from three journals (Evolution, Biotropica, and Ornitología Neotropical) discussed how their journals try to address language barriers to publishing and how non-native English speakers can improve publication processes. In the second half, we discussed how we can measure journals’ commitment to addressing language barriers and what might explain differences among journals. Based on the discussion we are now developing a collaborative project to collect more information from journals and write a paper.
Thanks very much everyone who attended the workshop, especially the three Editors-in-Chief, Prof. Tracey Chapman, Prof. Jennifer Powers, and Dr. Paulo Pulgarín-R for their very inspiring talks!
The recording of the firstpart of the workshop is now available here.
