Summary:Sally Burgess is a Lecturer in English at the University of La Laguna, Spain
The editors of this timely volume are to be congratulated on assembling a rich series of insider accounts of early career scholars’ frequently non-linear trajectories toward academic publication. The diverse voices of these emerging scholars will encourage the next generation to persevere on their chosen route despite setbacks and challenges. At the same time, these deeply-layered autoethnographies expand our understanding of just what is at stake in the unequal world of global academic publishing. - Sue Starfield, University of New South Wales, Australia This collection provides a much-needed focus on the publishing experiences of early-career scholars. The reflexive analyses of challenges and successes provide important personal insights into the attitudes and strategies of scholars from diverse languages and cultures. These richly embodied autoethnographies advance the evolving scholarship on diversifying academic publishing.
-Suresh Canagarajah, Pennsylvania State University, USA This edited book addresses the complex topic of writing for scholarly publication by early-career scholars. Drawing on self-study and auto-ethnographic perspectives, a group of international early-career researchers share their personal histories, narratives and first-hand accounts of their scholarly publication practices. The book helps paint a richer and more nuanced picture of the experiences, success stories, failures, and challenges that frame and shape academic trajectories of both Anglophone and English as an additional language (EAL) scholars in writing for publication. This book will be of particular interest to scholars of Applied Linguistics, English for academic purposes (EAP), and second language writing, but it will also be of use to other early-career scholars embarking on their first attempts at writing for publication. Pejman Habibie is Assistant Professor of Applied Linguistics at Western University, Canada.
