Introduction

Following the success of the internationally famous Asian EFL Journal, the Executive have established the Asian ESP Journal.

The Asian EFL Journal is a Division of TESOL Asia (Australia) and part of the English Language Education Journal group and are wholly owned by SITE Australia Ltd.

The Asian ESP Journal academic section examines issues within the Asian ESP Zone, and considers how traditional approaches are integrated with or contrasted against what is arguably a very specialized and relatively new field of study.

This journal is now accessible to the global Academic and teaching community, where articles relating to Asian ESP may be published and viewed by all Academic and Teaching professionals. The primary function of the Asian ESP Journal is to provide a journal on a quarterly basis through the user friendly and highly accessible medium of the Internet that widens the target audience and authorship, particularly in the Asian-Pacific region.

The Asian ESP Journal also provides new insights into key issues and subjects that are emerging and are of contemporary interest that may not gain space in a variety of hard copy and more ‘established’ publications. These articles, for the most part, may not find their way into costly journals that have the added problem of lacking accessibility for the highly mobile Business professionals.
