This guide aims to demystify the practices of scholarly journal publishing in English. The book focuses on practices, institutions and politics rather than language and writing. Drawing on 10 years of research into academic publishing and writing practices, it provides a guide for readers to relate to their own contexts and situations as they consider publishing.
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.

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.
