Along with academic journals, conferences are one of the main ways through which researchers share ideas and new developments. They also provide a useful platform for clarifying ideas and understanding related concepts.

This course takes the outside view on academic publishing in the English language market. For non-native speakers, the Anglo-American publishing environment can be dauntingly different, as it functions according to culturally specific rules and market models that are not apparent to outsiders.
