      Publishing in English journals is important but challenging for many non-native speakers of English. The AAG has put together two panel sessions at the 2014 AAG Annual Meeting that focus on the issues and challenges non-native speakers of English face when they attempt to publish their work in Anglo-American journals. Editors of the Annals of the Association of American Geographers, The Professional Geographer, The AAG Review of Books, and other journals will discuss their experience regarding how to address these issues or challenges. Authors and manuscript reviewers will also share their experience, either with respect to their success or failure in publishing in English journals. There will be plenty of time for open discussion among the audience. Information about the two sessions is as follows:
