Title: English Versus Native Languages In Humanities And Social Sciences Publications: Time Evolution, Choices And Geopolitical Issues
Author: Manganote E.
Schulz P.
Abstract: In this paper we discuss the language option used in indexed publication in non anglophilic countries, according to the knowledge field. Initially, as expected from various preceding studies, we see the overwhelming use of English in most fields. The scenario becomes more involved in social sciences and humanities, particularly when other publications items than articles are considered. Here we focus on book reviews published in journals indexed in the Web of Science from ISI Thomson-Reuters. Furthermore, within this scenario different countries show different time evolution of language choice in the elected publication class (book reviews). These time evolutions, sometimes favoring English against native languages, seem to be influenced by a variety of factors.
