We all live in the “publish or perish” era. Writing for publication is a strenuous process, especially for those whose native language is not English. It requires not only a sufficient level of academic English, but also awareness of genre characteristics of a research article as well as effective communication with editors and reviewers. The topic of providing support to authors seems to be very timely for many universities.
The Academic Writing Center of HSE University organizes a conference “Supporting Faculty in Writing for Publication: Best Practices” to celebrate the tenth anniversary of its work. The Center has gained considerable experience of assisting faculty in preparing publications and has greatly contributed to setting standards for writing centers’ activity in Russia. Now we open our doors to a wider community.
We invite teachers of academic writing, editors, and writing centers’ staff to the conference. We seek contributions, which aim to explore and problematize the issues connected with training and supporting plurilingual authors for writing publications in English. The conference is a space for sharing the diversity of experiences, expertise, best practices, as well as challenges that writing instructors and writing centers’ tutors encounter while helping faculty with writing articles in English for research publication purposes.
