Dr. Steve Wallace, the founder of Wallace Academic Editing, mentioned that poor English caused only 11% of the journal paper written by Chinese are accepted by the editors of International Journal.


There are several errors that Chinese always made in their journal, especially “English errors”, which is over 31% of the rejected reasons. Based on Wallace observation, most of the Chinese present their paper badly with redundancy that makes long paper with saying nothing.

Wallace Academic Editing is an organization of edition, translation of journals in Tai Wan. Wallace is experienced in editing the journal written by PhD students. He focuses on making improvement of the quality of the journal written by Chinese which will be published on International Journal.

He said that “clearly presentation” is the key succeed factor to get improvement in journal paper. Wallace believed the main reason why Chinese’ paper rejected ration is comparatively higher than others due to the translation. When students translate Chinese idea into English, it increases the risk of poor English presentation.


Another reason why Chinese’ journal mostly rejected because of manuscript instructions. “If you don’t follow (the manuscript instructions), editors just ignore your paper no matter you have good ideas”, says Wallace. The international journals would like to keep high standard of the published journals in order to earn good reputation and increasing numbers of readers. Therefore, “Chinglish” is the obstacle that Chinese scholars encountering.
