ESP Across Cultures is a double-blind refereed international journal set up by the University of Foggia, which is published on an annual basis. It publishes theoretical, descriptive and applied studies on varieties of English pertaining to a wide range of specialized fields of knowledge, such as agriculture, art and humanities, commerce, economics, education and vocational training, environmental studies, finance, information technology, law, media studies, medicine, politics, religion, science, the social sciences, sports, technology and engineering, tourism, and transport.
The journal addresses a readership composed of academics, professionals, and students interested in English for special purposes particularly from a cross-cultural perspective. The aim of the journal is to bring together scholars, practitioners, and young researchers working in different specialized language domains and in different disciplines with a view to developing an interdisciplinary and cross-cultural approach to the study of ESP.
In February 2014 the journal was recognized by ANVUR (Italy’s National Agency for Evaluating the University System and Research) as belonging to the highest category (‘classe A’) of scientific journals in the sector L1 (LINGUE, LETTERATURE E CULTURE INGLESE E ANGLO-AMERICANA).
