Scholarly publishing?


Just a caveat: We shouldn't draw conclusions about scholarly publishing as a whole from articles about startups and fly-by-night presses.

Agreed, and I don't think we're doing that. Scholarly journalism has problems like any other industry, and two of them are detailed here. Copyeditors who work on scholarly texts should be aware of the issues.

The argument that "we" are the arbiters of what is language is true only if we are speaking of the descriptive dictionary, because that dictionary (MW 11, for example) describes how we use language and doesn't tell us how we should be using language.

A second problem with the "we" position is that it basically says language is whatever we want it to be whenever we want it to be something -- the Humpty Dumpty approach:

"'When I use a word,' Humpty Dumpty said, in rather a scornful tone, 'it means just what I choose it to mean — neither more nor less.'

'The question is,' said Alice, 'whether you can make words mean so many different things.'

'The question is,' said Humpty Dumpty, 'which is to be master — that's all.'"

In other words, if we do not accept the dictionary as the definer of what a word means,

then language anarchy ensues and communication stops. All of us rely on our ability to understand what another person is saying by using agreed upon (albeit subconsciously) definitions that are arbitrated by dictionaries.

The latest news about


The latest news about scholarly publishing and small publishing houses isn’t good. Today’s News Roundup has the details. - See more at: Public Interest GRFX, the communications team for the Public Interest Network, is seeking a senior editor to join its Boston team. The Public Interest Network includes U.S. PIRG, Environment America, Green Corps, National Environmental Law Center, and other social-change organizations. Public Interest GRFX uses email, the Web, direct mail, newsletters, annual reports and other communication platforms to help the organizations in the Public Interest Network “engage the public, win hearts and minds, raise funds and organize grassroots action to win positive social change.” - Before the holidays, I wrote a response to whether editors can be trained. I believe they can, and the biggest boost to success is one-on-one training and feedback. It’s rare to see this kind of training in the office environment and even rarer for freelancers. - See more at: Sarang303 Agen Bola Sbobet Ibcbet Casino 338A Tangkas Togel Online Indonesia Terpercaya
