ASp publishes peer-reviewed research articles, research notes and book reviews related to the field of English for Specific Purposes (ESP) for both teaching and research twice a year. The thematic and non-thematic issues aim to give an insight into ESP, notably in its linguistic, discursive, cultural and didactic aspects, and also to develop our knowledge of the various specific English registers used for different purposes.
Various analytical frameworks can be adopted: discourse (discourse analysis, genre study, pragmatics), corpus and phraseology, cultural studies, didactics (second language learning theories, ESP teaching, ergonomics, ICT…), linguistic events and grammar, terminology, specialised translation.
The journal publishes in French and in English.
Research articles present cutting edge research in fields of study and research related to English for Specific Purposes (ESP) or of interest to that sector. They adopt original approaches, highlight either theoretical or innovative methodologies and the new knowledge that arises from the research.
Research notes give the authors an opportunity to rapidly present new data on research topics related to ESP research and teaching, or of interest to that sector. They detail methods and results.
Book and critical reviews present books, collections of books, dissertations, journals… related to ESP or of interest to the ESP community.
