Aims & Scope

JESAF (ISSN: 2957-515X), a free-fee journal, prides itself as a bi-annual peer-reviewed international forum for exchanging ideas, opinions, and innovations. It is a digital forum for publishing theoretical and practical research pertinent to English language studies. We favor contributions of a scholarly nature, especially contemporary issues of concern to the readership. We expressly encourage submissions of previously unpublished articles on language research, book reviews, reports on previously published articles, case studies, and essays on topics of significance to individuals concerned with the English language, English literature, and educational research.

Providing this trustworthy academic platform for academics and researchers in the Arab peninsula, the Middle East, and the rest of the world enables them to contribute to research and knowledge construction. It also helps MA and Ph.D. researchers and conference contributors to publish their papers. We have noticed that many excellent research works end up perishing and thus depriving the world of enlightening ideas and findings that may answer existing perplexing questions and inspire other researchers to conduct further research. JESAF helps such researchers to unlock thier potential and bring their work to light.  Manuscripts address a wide range of issues which include, but also reach beyond, the following:

  • Language teacher education
  • Digital literacy
  • World/Global Englishes
  • English as a lingua franca
  • English for Specific Purposes (ESP)
  • Content and Language Integrated Learning (CLIL)
