Journal of English for Research Publication Purposes

This journal is peer reviewed and indexed in: Dimensions

The Journal of English for Research Publication Purposes will provide a scholarly venue for the construction and dissemination of discourses related to the fast-expanding field of English for research publication purposes (ERPP). This will help academics and practitioners working in (sub)disciplines such as Applied Linguistics, EAP, ESP, Education, and Writing Studies to communicate their relevant scholarly works and perspectives with international members of their community of practice, keep current with the new discourses and practices within and surrounding this domain, and contribute to the further enrichment and development of this field of scholarship. The Journal will publish conceptual and empirical articles, book reviews, and academic discourses and exchanges on a wide range of topics including writing for scholarly publication, graduate writing, pedagogy of ERPP, writing centers, mentorship, ERPP teacher education, international policies and practices related to ERPP, evaluation and review processes, discourse analysis of academic output, needs analysis, ERPP curriculum design and materials development, research communication support services, and international ERPP initiatives and programs.
