Call for Abstracts:
Advances in Information and Communication Technologies have had a significant impact on the use of English in academic and professional contexts. For example, digital media have made it possible for specialists to engage with a greater range of audiences through the internet and also made innovative forms of multimodal, hypertextual communication possible. In this way, digital media have had an effect on the target literacy practices in English for specific purposes (ESP) courses. They have also opened up many innovative possibilities for the teaching of specialized language. This special issue will address these changes and what they mean for ESP.

We invite abstracts for research articles, review articles, ''Innovations in Practice'' reports, viewpoints, and book and/or technology reviews that address the theme of this issue. More information about these articles types is available at

- English for Academic Purposes (EAP)
