Description

English for Academic Purposes (EAP) focuses on the types of English learners encounter and use in academic or study situations, usually in higher education contexts, and on the teaching and learning of academic English. It also focuses on the types of English and forms of communication used by academics in research settings.

This new 4 volume collection from Routledge will highlight key research, thinking and developments in pedagogy and document the concepts and debates that have impacted on EAP over the last three and a half decades. The selection of articles will enable readers to follow the developments and to understand how contemporary perspectives and research interests have emerged. The volumes will include key material that has been influential and represents the diversity of research interests and thinking in the area. Fully indexed, and with a new introduction to each volume by the editor, this collection will be a valuable research resource.

Reviews

'…English for Academic Purposes is a very welcome and extremely comprehensive introduction and overview of the field. It is likely to prove a potentially very useful resource to students, practitioners and scholars studying or working in EAP. Helen Basturkmen, the editor, is to be congratulated for putting it together.' - John Flowerdew, City University, Hong Kong, Journal of English for Academic Purposes
