Many social workers with a non-English-speaking background experience barriers in writing and publishing, particularly in refereed journals. This issue had led to a lack of their contribution to international social work knowledge creation and dissemination and a resulting imbalance in the global knowledge base of social work. This is particularly the case in regard to the social work practised in the global South. An action research project is proposed as a means to systematically define and address the problem. It earnestly invites all those with an interest in solving this problem for social work as an international discipline to come together to agree on such a way forward.
