Navigating the path to publication in peer-reviewed journals is complicated enough on its own, but for non-native English speakers, the challenge is even more painfully acute. Professor Marnie Petray and Professor Gail Clements, editors of the book: Linguistic Discrimination in US Higher Education, offered their unique perspectives on the roots of language bias and how this bias has impacted the world of academic publication.
- What role does standard language ideology (SLI) play in propagating language bias?
- How should journal editors take writing and language into consideration in their publication decisions?
- How can reviewers more sensitively respond to submissions with non-standard English?
