Significance: Recognizing the Value of Research across National and Linguistic Boundaries
Anderson-Levitt, Kathryn M.
Asia Pacific Education Review, v15 n3 p347-354 Sep 2014
Internationalization of educational publishing promises fresh perspectives and new solutions--but not if US-based editors, reviewers, and readers fail to recognize the significance of research conducted outside the USA. This essay explores the concept of "significance" in the context of peer review of journal articles, and explains why US-based reviewers easily miss the social importance and the intellectual interest of research conducted elsewhere. It points to several steps that can be taken to increase publication of the full global range of educational scholarship.
