This chapter enumerates motivations, risks, and awards involved in writing for scholarly publication for novice scholars. Focusing on the complex yet under-represented topic of writing for scholarly publication by doctoral students and junior scholars, it underlines the exigency of an in-depth understanding of discursive and non-discursive challenges that these scholars encounter in communicating their research as well as macro and micro policies, interventions, and strategies that can alleviate those struggles and support novice academics’ visibility and participation in global forum. Finally, it provides an overview of the structural organization of the book and the constituent chapters.
