Although academic literacy development is critical for fostering next generation researchers, how early career researchers learn academic literacy and socialize in the scholarly community is underexplored. Academic literacy development and socialization is a complex, socially situated, and multifaceted process which requires understanding of international and domestic discourse of academic community and practice, language learning, and power. The purpose of this study is to explore the nature of academic literacy development and socialization among early career researchers in higher education. We draw our experiences in offering services to the academy community by managing, interacting, and coordinating with academic society. In our interactions with authors, reviewers, assistants, publishers, and other editors, we facilitate our learning of tacit knowledge and expertise, academy literacies (e.g., disciplinary based literacy and sociocultural literacy), power and authority. We contribute to the literature on academic socialization of postdoctoral researchers in non-formal learning.
