(I see that you have mixed up journal and research paper. Researchers like scientists, scholars or academics write research papers and submit them to journals hoping to get published. So, it should be "academic research paper get rejected", not academic journal get rejected. For example, in medicine, there is Hong Kong Medical Journal and American Journal of Medicine and others. "Not in his lifetime" are the key words when he said Chinese will not in any time soon to replace English as the international language.)

English Errors, the “Culprit” of Academic Journal rejected

By Lin Li Ping, 29-10-2013


Dr. Steve Wallace, founder of Wallace Academic Editing, said that almost 90% of academic journal from Hong Kong were rejected by those international journal because of English language error.


Steve Wallace is the professional in writing academic journal. He is the reviewer for Technical Communication and the World Applied Science Journal. In this few weeks, he visited to Hong Kong to held speech to the university students about how to improve the English writing skills for academic journal. He said most of the academic journal rejected not because of the research itself but the common errors in writing style and use of English. He discovered that there are 9 common errors of English when he reviewing the academic journals handed in from the researchers. The top three errors are redundancy, passive voice errors and noun verb issues.


Students asked whether he think Chinese can replace English as the major language in the foreseeable future. As a foreign Chinese learner, he thought Chinese is really hard to learn and hard to teach people how to read. He said most of the academic journals are in English because many specific words not yet have Chinese substitute but only English can express those meaning, so he believed that English would be still the major language used on the world.
