Writing and publishing in peripheral scholarly journals: How to enhance the global influence of multilingual scholars?
MetadataShow full item record
I begin this opinion piece by defining the two main sets of scientific publications, viz.,mainstream/center journals and peripheral/small ones. I then analyze why multilingual peripheral scholars choose to publish their research results in English-medium journals and why they also often choose to publish them in domestic journals written in national languages. Because of the existing highly competitive journal publishing environment, I present a few measures that could be undertaken to allow multilingual peripheral researchers to increase their influence as global partners in the world of science.
