Special Issue Of English for Specific Purposes
Title: ESP Research in Asia
Guest Editors: An Cheng and Laurence Anthony

As in many other parts of the world, English is rapidly spreading across Asia.
One scholar estimates that the number of English users and learners in China
has reached a staggering 330 million in the 21st century. The status of
English in Asian societies is also changing, with some businesses in Japan,
for example, requiring all their meetings, telephone calls, and e-mail
communication to be carried out solely in English.

These trends and changes raise serious questions about the impact of
English as a 'lingua franca' in professional and academic communication in
Asia and draw our research attention to the educational, economic, and social
factors that propel the popularity of ESP. The aim of this special issue is to
present original ESP research being carried out in Asia that addresses these
and other ESP-related questions that fall within the scope of the journal.

A 600-word abstract should be submitted that represents work previously
unpublished in English or in any other language. On a separate sheet, include
each author's name, affiliation, mailing address, e-mail address, telephone
and fax numbers, and a 50-word biographical statement.

The deadline for abstracts is June 30, 2011.

Decisions will be made on the basis of these abstracts to invite authors to
submit a full paper for possible inclusion in the special issue. Full papers will
be due on 29 February, 2012 and will follow the normal peer-review process
for the journal.

Abstracts should be submitted to both guest editors:
An Cheng and Laurence Anthony
