This bibliography provides seminal papers to date investigating English for specific purposes (ESP) from different perspectives that published in major second language acquisition journals. To this end, we surveyed more than 30 journals, in particular Annual Review of Applied Linguistics, Applied Linguistics, ELT, Foreign Language Annals, International Journal of Applied Linguistics, Journal of Research in Reading, Language Assessment Quarterly, Language Awareness, Language Learning, Language Teaching, Language Teaching Research, Language Testing, RELC Journal, Second Language Research, TESOL Journal, TESOL Quarterly, System, The Modern Language Journal, The Language Learning Journal, and Studies in Second Language Acquisition, to name but a few. We excluded the research articles which were experimental research. We, also, excluded English for specific purposes (formerly known as the ESP journal) and journal of English for academic purposes on the grounds that they are exclusively devoted to this field of study. The resources can be used in MA and PhD programs. The articles selected would also be of assistance for ESP practitioners and researchers, in particular for instructors of teacher training and education courses which are devoted exclusively for ESP teachers.
