This is a review of Non-natives writing for Anglo-American journals: Challenges and urgent needs by Katarzyna Hryniuk published in 2019 by Wydawnictwa Uniwersytetu Warszawskiego. Katarzyna Hryniuk is Assistant Professor in the Institute of English Studies at the University of Warsaw. Her research interests are foreign language learning and teaching, in particular developing writing skills in a foreign language and comparing Polish and Anglo-American conventions of academic writing, the issue that she pursues in the book reviewed here. The main aim of the monograph is to have a closer look at how Polish scholars approach a difficult task of writing academic articles for publication in prestigious Anglo-American journals. This aspect of academia seems particularly important in the light of the requirement to publish in international journals, which researchers in Poland and other semi periphery countries may find challenging to complete. In relation to the ERL framework, the book addresses the research topics discussed in the Language and Schooling strand. I believe academic writing presented from the perspective of the skills mastered by FL writers and the problems they face will always be an issue that deserves more attention of those interested in teaching and researching writing.
