Abstract: 
In this paper we report a study which was aimed to find out how overseastrained
Chinese management academics (CMAs) compare with their hometrained
counterparts in English-medium scholarly experience. Our data were
drawn from a web-based questionnaire distributed following the conclusion of
the biennial conference of the International Association for Chinese
Management Research (IACMR) held in 2014, the part of the conference
program which featured English sessions, e-mail interviews with some
questionnaire respondents, and observation at the conference site. Our
findings comparatively illustrate the English-medium scholarly experience of
the two cohorts of CMAs in terms of their participation in the English
presentation sessions of IACMR2014, their use of English as university
academics, and the relationship between English/Chinese-medium research
productivity and self-perceived English abilities. Our study highlights
heterogeneity among different groups of English as an Additional Language
(EAL) scholars and calls for more contextualized investigation of the diverse
experiences of EAL scholars across countries and disciplines in this English-dominant
academic world.
