Offering a nuanced examination of the complex landscape that international scholars who publish their research in English must navigate, this edited volume details 17 perspectives on scholarly writing for publication across seven geolinguistic regions. This innovative volume includes first-hand accounts and analyses written by local scholars and pedagogues living and working outside Anglophone centres of global knowledge production. The book provides an in-depth look into the deeply contextualized pedagogical activities that support English-language publishing. It also brings much-needed insight to discussions of policies and practices of global scholarly research writing. Bookended by the editors' introductory overview of this burgeoning field and an envoi by the eminent applied linguist John M. Swales, the diverse contributions in this volume will appeal to scholars who use English as an additional language, as well as to researchers, instructors, and policymakers involved in the production, support, and adjudication of global scholars' research writing.

"This volume offers a highly valuable discussion of various experiences of academic writing in English across a number of different cultures. Mainly using a case study methodology, the book provides in-depth perspectives on a wide range of research projects and pedagogic activities across seven geolinguistic areas all over the world. By providing a scholarly insight into deeply contextualized teaching and research activities that promote English-language publishing, this book makes an important contribution to the literature on cross-cultural communication in academic contexts."

"This book is a must-read for all those multilingual scholars faced with the need and challenges of disseminating their research in English. With thought-provoking contributions from seven off-network geolinguistic regions around the globe, the editors have managed to beautifully map the global context of a community of non-Anglophone researchers under increasing pressure to publish their papers in peer-reviewed Anglophone international journals. The enlightening coverage of local initiatives and pedagogical interventions in under-researched locations boosts and supports the burgeoning field of English for Research Publication Purposes and makes it an invaluable resource for multilingual novice and expert researchers using English as an additional language for scholarly communication.

"This book is a fascinating-and for an Anglophone writer, eye-opening-look into the world of writing for research publications in English as an additional language (EAL). Drawing on scholars from around the globe, the editors provide a wealth of perspectives on how EAL scholars learn to write in English, and how programs to support their learning can be structured. It's invaluable to hear directly from those who are living the experience of publishing in an additional language, and who are helping other scholars to do the same. Those interested in understanding what faces EAL writers, and especially those interested in programs to assist those writers, will find a lot in this volume to think about."

"This volume provides fascinating in-depth snapshots of the dilemmas and challenges of English for Research Publication Purposes (ERPP) from around the world. These chapters point beyond the familiar ground of advanced language education to fundamental questions of the purposes of international and local publication for different disciplines, the meaning of national language cultures, the wisdom of publication mandates and publication reward structures, the value of plurilingualism, and even the role of language education in earlier grades."
