Description

Although scholarship has long been dominated by European languages, English is increasingly the primary language of scholarly communication worldwide. We will give an overview of the linguistic landscape of academic publishing and the ways it privileges American, British, and Commonwealth English-speakers both as authors and as readers. We describe how librarians can encourage multilingual Open Access publishing as one way to raise awareness while also increasing access.

Learning Outcomes

Attendees will be able to:

  • Describe the current language landscape of global scholarly communication

  • Identify possible places to advocate for multilingual OA in their own institutions
