Many universities worldwide now require established and novice scholars, as well as PhD students, to publish in English in international journals. This growing trend gives rise to multiple interrelated questions, which this volume seeks to address through the perspectives of a group of researchers and practitioners who met in Coimbra, Portugal in 2015 for the PRISEAL (Publishing and Presenting Research Internationally: Issues for Speakers of English as an Additional Language) and MET (Mediterranean Editors and Translators) conferences.

The volume offers truly global coverage, with chapters focusing on vastly different geo-social areas, and disciplines from the humanities to the hard sciences. It will be of interest to applied linguists, particularly those working in the area of English for Research Publication Purposes, and to language professionals working in research writing support, research supervision and academic publishing, as well as to journal editors and managers.

About the Editors

Margaret Cargill is an applied linguist specialising in the development of research communication skills for scientists who use English either as a first or an additional language. She has 25 years' experience working intensively with international research students and their supervisors, including in the University's internationally recognised Integrated Bridging Program (1995-2008).

Sally Burgess is a lecturer in English at the University of La Laguna. Her main research interests are in cross-cultural rhetoric, the contribution of language professionals to the preparation of research publications, the teaching of writing in the university context and, most recently, the effects of research evaluation policies on Spanish scholars’ publishing practices.
