Mission, Aims & Scope
Global Business Languages publishes original, peer-reviewed articles that make a significant contribution to the field of Business Language Studies. Embracing a broad definition of business, we welcome submissions in a variety of related interdisciplinary subfields within Language for Specific Purposes (LSP), such as language for the arts, law, health sciences, engineering, etc.. We particularly welcome articles that are theoretically framed or empirically driven, and that offer new perspectives, and/or refine or challenge current practices in LSP. Contributions may pertain to any language, including English for non-native speakers.
GBL will be published once annually, exclusively in digital format.
