Cambridge University researchers conducted a survey on the impact of language barrier in international exchange of research findings on science and technology in a global scale. Science has made immense progress in the recent past. These research developments are published in academic and scientific journals for worldwide audience.
Most of the journals publish articles in English, so it is perceived as the global language of science and research. However, a recent study indicated that around one third of the total research development in the field of conservation science is published in non-English languages such as Chinese, Japanese, Spanish and German, among others.
