In the process of globalization of arts and sciences, English has become the

Anglo-American standards of academic writing. Papers in this special issue
address topics related to the production of English academic texts by non-native
speakers of English, e.g. the interference of the stylistic standards of the native
language, comparison of academic texts in native languages and in English,
typology of errors, or the strategies of teaching academic writing at different
levels of education.
