Announcement: Special Issue of the HLRC - Global Issues in English Language Teaching and Learning
As higher education and research productivity become increasingly international in focus, English has become the predominant global language in business, academic research, and higher education. Internationalization of higher education is occurring at a rapid pace. Programs globally are in place to teach English as a medium of instruction, in which courses are taught in English, and content and language-integrated learning, in which foreign language mastery is not the direct aim of the instruction. Most academic research is published in English; percentages of journal articles published in English range from 75% – 98%. This comes with criticism. For example, while the internationalization of research (and its publication in English) creates opportunities to attract the best research talent, some suggest that translation from indigenous languages risks losing valuable information and ways of seeing the world.
The purpose of this special issue is to examine the multitude of issues related to internationalization, globalization, and English-language dominance in higher education and scientific discovery. Issues that can be addressed include but are not limited to:
We expect to publish the special issue in the Spring of 2024. Therefore, we will accept manuscripts through February 28, 2024. However, note that manuscripts are published upon acceptance and final copyediting, so they may be published earlier. We will consider the following types of manuscripts: Empirical research studies; critical literature reviews; brief reports and essays. Requirements for submitting manuscripts can be found at https://scholarworks.waldenu.edu/hlrc/styleguide.html. Authors are expected to have the manuscript in the correct format prior to submission. We welcome any questions; please direct them to [email protected].
