"Researching Contexts, Practices and Pedagogies in English for Academic Purposes is as timely as it is wide-ranging, well-thought and suggestive. It becomes a much-welcome contribution to the literature, as it offers an impressively detailed snapshot of current trends and approaches within educational research as these have been directly applied to EAP. ... The monograph is impressively comprehensive, profusely documented and coherent." (Antonio Jimenez Munoz, Revista de Lenguas para Fines Especificos, Issue 21, 2015)

"This book provides an overview of a large research field which overlaps with other types of educational research: contexts, tertiary learning, teaching and literacy, and even themes within international education. The book is intended to be about the work and research of English for Academic Purposes (EAP) professionals (tutors and managers), with this same group being the intended audience. ... This book by Blaj-Ward could play a key role in the expansion of EAP practitioner research." (Constantine C. Dimitriou, Journal of Research in International Education, Vol. 14 (2), 2015)
