In Brief
Language is a very important medium for communication.
In the present state of modern globalization, language has become an obstacle that cannot be ignored.
English is the lingua franca for academic correspondence and most of the high impact factor journals are
published in English with a broad global readership.
The submission of articles in poor English will hinder researchers and article publication.

Introduction
During the global compilation of scientific knowledge, language barriers
can lead to information gaps.
English is the language that, as a lingua franca, actually governs global
science practices.
Many scientists and consumers of scientific information, such as
policymakers, engage in languages other than English on a daily basis,
which ultimately poses obstacles to knowledge sharing across cultures.
The scope of this issue is not well quantified, though, and it is worth
further investigating the implications and remedies.
Language barriers present a particularly serious issue in subjects of
particular importance to local knowledge, such as the environmental
sciences needed for the protection of biodiversity (Amano et al., 2016).

Reasons to Publish in
Renowned EnglishSpeaking Journals by
Scientific Researchers
1. English is the international
/universal language of scientific
communication.
2. The publication of research
results is an integral part of the
professional life of a researcher.

Although many research articles are published in English, in the 21st century scientific researchers
are an intercultural and international practice, and many authors come from a wide variety of
cultural and language contexts and are non-native English speakers.
Writing is not the favorite activity of every researcher, and the obstacles to publishing a paper can
be stressful, especially when English is not the native language of the author.
Publishing research has problems: things that extend to all scientists and some that are special to
scientists working in areas where English is a first or second language.
It is also important to realize, that writing is a talent, whatever the language; irrespective of being
non-native scientists or those who use English as their first language.

The article's numbers submitted to Western journals are enhancing each year, with an increasing number
of those submissions coming from countries where the native language is not English.
Editors become increasingly unwilling to work with poorly written articles, particularly papers with errors in
basic English.
For some of the high-end journals, rejection rates will exceed 95 percent, a very intimidating number in new
authors.
The biggest issue facing non-native writers seeking to publish in English journals is continuing rejection of
their article due to non-standard use of English or incorrect English.
In fact, several high impact journals including PLOS and PNAS recommend that authors who need help in
writing use such services before they submit (Bortolus, 2012). Language polishing services assist authors
by giving them expert editors who are English native speakers and who are also skilled in the relevant
subject field.
The writer significantly reduces the risk that their paper will be disqualified for language mistakes alone by
getting papers reviewed before sending it to the specified publication.

Few Tips to Overcome the English Barrier
for Publication in a High Impact Journal:
Before the submission of your article, select a particular journal and conform to your article whether it is
relevant to the aims and scope of the selected journal. If your article is unfit, the chances of getting rejected in
the selected journal are more wasting both editor’s and your time. This is one of the main factors contributing to
rejection.
Be mindful of the journal's layout and customize the paper to suit. It shows that in written papers you have
carefully studied the publication and appreciate what its readers and editors expect.
Make sure that you cite your sources in full and complete. In academic work, plagiarism is a main problem and
publishers are gradually utilizing sophisticated software to scan documents for plagiarized material. If your
paper is found to contain content that is not correctly quoted from other documents that have already been
written, you not only will not get published, but you may be asked not to re-submit to that publisher.
The article will also be edited by a professional editor for the specialized editing program, who will provide extra
corrections and in-depth feedback to enhance the document's performance.
Before submission of your article reviewed by a native English speaker. Even if your fluency is outstanding,
when you test your article, a native English speaker is likely to spot small mistakes.

Conclusio
n
The global compilation and application of scientific knowledge continue to be
hindered by language barriers.
It is not an easy challenge to overcome this problem, but if done, scientists and
consumers of scientific information should have far-reaching advantages in
combating global environmental change and solving local environmental problems.
We hope there are possible practical solutions to the methods outlined here.

Future Scopes
With the growing importance of English language, provision for the learning of English
for non-native speakers should be made available in the educational institutions.
The training should be given by a native English speaker or professionals who are well
versed in the English language.
