Abstracts
Given that more and more non-native English speakers have begun to publish in English in recent years, researchers are becoming increasingly interested in revealing writing features that influence the eligibility for international publication. This paper, with systematic review as the major research method, aims to outline factors influencing non-native speaker’s publication in international journals. Based on critical analysis of previous research findings presented in six representative papers, the research draws to the following conclusions: first, even though journal editors prefer correct grammar use, minor grammar errors do not decrease the possibility of publication, because more attention is paid to the worthiness of the content, which may include uniqueness of viewpoint, high research quality, discursive coherence in paper structuring and content organizing, etc. In the second place, avoiding time delay has a significantly positive impact on the likelihood of publication. Thirdly, research that has a clear social background is easier to be accepted by international journals than research without any social background or without explicitly demonstrated social background. Last but not least, compared with those from America, Britain and Western Europe, voices from Asia, Africa and other non-Western countries are particularly welcome. However, since the present research draws heavily on material from the fields of science and engineering, research findings may vary once other fields have been included.
