30 Jun Workshop – Overcoming language barriers to academic publishing
We are happy to announce that we will be organising a workshop on language barriers to academic publishing at 9:00 – 11:00 am AEST on Wednesday the 7th July 2021.
Please find more details in the flyer below and register (https://forms.gle/xNTXGCdAaeRrtbKY8; limited to 100 people max.) to obtain the zoom link.
In the second half of the workshop, we will have a discussion session on how we can measure the level of journals’ commitment to addressing language barriers and what might explain differences among journals. From this discussion, we will develop a collaborative project to collect relevant information from as many journals in organismal biology as possible and write a paper. Anyone who is willing to join this collaboration needs to register beforehand (https://forms.gle/9K6oscf4nsRwJ48N9; limited to 50 people max.).
The workshop is open to anyone; participation of both non-native and native English speakers in both sections are strongly encouraged, as the issue of language barriers would not be solved without concerted efforts by the entire scientific community. Look forward to discussing this important issue with many people!
