English for Specific Purposes

Published/Hosted by Elsevier. ISSN: 0889-4906.

English For Specific Purposes publishes articles and research notes- reporting basic research in the linguistic description of specialized varieties of English and the application of such research to specific methodological concerns. Topics such as the following may be treated from the perspective of English for specific purposes: discourse analysis, second language acquisition in specialized contexts, needs assessment, curriculum development and evaluation, materials preparation, teaching and testing techniques, the effectiveness of various approaches to language learning and language teaching, and the training or retraining of teachers for the teaching of ESP. In addition, the journal welcomes articles and discussions that identify the aspects of ESP needing development, the areas into which the practice of ESP may be expanded, the possible means of cooperation between ESP programs and the learners' professional or vocational interests, and the implications that findings from related disciplines can have for the profession of ESP. The journal also carries reviews of textbook materials and scholarly books on topics of general interest to the profession. Selected abstracts from English for Specific Purposes are available in Ampersand, the Elsevier Science linguistics newsletter.
