Product Description

Review

"...a highly valuable volume which serves as an eye-opener for a broad readership. Most importantly, language professionals can be informed about the diversity of academic writing support which in turn empowers them in managing communication with their clients."--Journal of Second Language Writing, Supporting Research Writing

"...offers valuable insights into the increasingly important work of language professionals in the publication of academic knowledge in English-medium journals...this book is a most relevant contribution."--Ibérica, 28-14

"…an in-depth look at the roles and relationships between researchers for whom English is a second or additional language and the language professionals who help them to develop their writing for an Anglophone audience…an intriguing volume examining an aspect (multilingualism) of academic publishing not often addressed. It is highly recommended for academic and research libraries to help diversify academic content."--The Australian Library Journal, Vol. 63, No. 1, 2014 "A MUST for anyone who supports research writing through editing, translation, or teaching…the authors of this book have succeeded in meeting their goal to clarify and define the full spectrum of roles and responsibilities involved in research writing support services and in making such services more visible at a European level."--Medical Writing, Vol. 22, No. 4, 2013

Format: Paperback
International collaboration in many research areas is on the rise, and the proportion of researchers for whom English is not the first language is growing worldwide. The need for more training to enable international researchers to communicate their results effectively is widely recognized, but the resources to provide high-quality training in research writing and publishing fall far short of current needs. This timely book is a valuable source of knowledge and guidance for those who work with international researchers. The authors, all active language, writing and publishing professionals and researchers in scholarly communication, explain the challenges international researchers face and provide a wealth of insights that can enhance the effectiveness of efforts by authors' editors, translators, publishers' editors, educators and trainers to support international researchers as their role in the worldwide research enterprise intensifies.
