Theme of BSE 2012/2:
In the process of globalization of arts and sciences, English has become the 
Lingua Franca of academic discourse. Scholars seeking international audience 
are bound to  produce coherent and effective texts in English, observing the 
Anglo-American standards of academic writing. Papers in this special issue 
address topics related to the production of English academic texts by non-native 
speakers of English, e.g. the interference of the stylistic standards of the native 
language, comparison of academic texts in native languages and in English, 
typology of errors, or the strategies of teaching academic writing at different 
levels of education.

2. All manuscripts should be accompanied by an abstract (100-150 words), a
