The idea of a web-based journal
was first voiced at the turn of the centuries by Simon Winetroube,
then ELT Projects' Officer at the British Council, Russia. It was later
discussed at the 8th ESP Anti-conference in St. Petersburg in October,
2001. Most Most participants agreed that it could benefit the international
ESP community, if we had an easily accessible electonic periodical with
contributions and readership from various countries.
English for Specific Purposes
This publication, however, would not have been possible without the support
that came from English Language Teaching Contacts Scheme and the
British Council, Russia. We are very grateful for the assistance that
we got from them, especially at the initial stages of the project, and
would also like to thank those ESP enthusiasts who spared no time and
effort to get the web-site started.
Anyone who can help with this endeavour, please contact Vitali Ashkinzi,
the Journal's Managing Editor, at this e-mail address email@example.com.
Contribute your ideas, knowledge, ESP and IT expertise.
