Researching, teaching and supporting research communication: Perspectives and prospects
Hosted by the Faculty of Arts and Humanities, University of Coimbra, Portugal
30 October – 1 November 2015

We are delighted to invite you to the World Heritage listed University of Coimbra for the third PRISEAL Conference (Publishing and Presenting Research Internationally: Issues for Speakers of English as an Additional Language), building the community and developing the debates begun in Tenerife (2007) and Katowice (2011). The issues and challenges discussed there have intensified for researchers of all disciplines who use English as an Additional Language, and research and practice have moved to address them in interesting ways. Our 2015 theme – Researching, teaching and supporting research communication: Perspectives and prospects – is designed to encourage contributions from the widest possible range of scholars and practitioners involved in these issues today.
Aiming at a better understanding of the complex situation of users of English as an Additional Language, we invite submissions from journal publishers, editors and referees; authors' editors and translators; teachers, materials writers and course designers for English for Research Publication Purposes; and scholars within humanities and social science fields including applied linguistics. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, these:
• academic publishing issues (e.g. advantages and limitations of open-access vs. commercial publishers; predatory journals and publishers)
• the geopolitics of academic writing (e.g. dominance of English, epistemicide , English as a Lingua Franca)
• academic ethics from a cross-cultural perspective (e.g. plagiarism and academic integrity)
• translation and editing in the academic context
• teaching of English for research and publication purposes
• peer-reviewing in intercultural and multilingual contexts

In an exciting development, PRISEAL 3 will be held in conjunction with METM15, the Mediterranean Editors and Translators Meeting, offering opportunities for shared sessions, cross-attendance and common social events. See the conference website for more information as it comes to hand, or check MET out at http://www.metmeetings.org/ .
