Around the globe, varied instructional settings use English for teaching and learning purposes, despite the fact that it is not the first language of some or all participants. The Journal of English-Medium Instruction provides a home for research on this important and rapidly growing phenomenon. The journal adopts a broad understanding of what constitutes English-medium instruction (EMI), while differentiating it from other multilingual pedagogies. EMI is an inherently interdisciplinary field, spanning multiple branches of applied linguistics and (higher) education pedagogy and didactics. A key objective of JEMI is to unite these strands of EMI research and enable scholarly work in one corner of this interdisciplinary area to reach both researchers and practitioners in others. JEMI welcomes contributions on a range of topics of relevance to EMI, e.g., forms of instruction, translanguaging, language policy, assessment, support for instructors, the transition from content and language integrated learning to EMI, and the development of academic as well as disciplinary literacy.
