Discussion of the use of foreign language sources in geological journals

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

In most scientific disciplines the dominant language for scientific publishing is English. Nonetheless, large bodies of scholarly literature have been and continue to be published in other languages; in fact, several studies based on analyses of geological indexing sources suggest that barely half of the published literature is in English. Considering the quantities of non-English material being published, this author concludes that foreign language sources are underutilized and that geologists risk missing relevant research by ignoring this body of knowledge. -from Author
