Abstract The article aims to identify the academic publishing environment of academics by analysing the existing literature in the studies related to academic publishing. A socioeconomic and political approach to academic publishing is adopted in this article to identify the multi-dimensions of the academic publishing. The analysis reveals that challenges as well as the perspective of publishing industry dominate the existing literature in academic publishing. Though, the existing studies address the business and economic perspective of academic publishing, the role of academic publishing within the field of higher education needs to be examined and end explored to understand the dynamics of the relationship, and inter-dependency between academics and the field of academic publishing. In the process of achieving the aim of understanding academic publishing, this article offers a foundation for establishing the relevance of adopting Bourdieus concepts for exploring the publishing practices of academics.
