English is now unquestionably the language of international scholarship and an important medium of research communication for non-native English speaking academics around the world. While accurate figures are hard to come by, perhaps one in five of the world's population now speaks English with reasonable competence (Crystal, 2003) and the language is rapidly coming to dominate the dissemination of knowledge. Universities in many countries now require staff to present at international conferences and, more crucially, publish in major, high-impact, peer reviewed Anglophone journals as a pre-requisite for tenure, promotion and career advancement. As a consequence, EAP practitioners increasingly find themselves called upon to venture into this unfamiliar terrain to improve the writing for publication skills of colleagues from other departments. In this chapter I address this growing area of academic literacy support, focusing on English for Professional Academic Purposes (EPAP): research and instruction with the goal of facilitating academic publication and presentation in English.
