SYNERGY is an open-access journal and invites theoretical or practical contributions from anyone who is involved in foreign language education and research and in various related disciplines; from anyone who, in addition to their distinct professional and academic concerns - share a fundamental commitment to human communication and to the enlightenment of the mind. Its concept springs from the conviction that there is a strong synergy between diverse academic ventures and that these separate threads can be brought together between the covers of a single publication, to interweave to form a wider and more complex pattern that will benefit all its readers.

SYNERGY is primarily directed towards capitalizing on the most relevant results of academic research connected to language learning, teaching and assessment, particularly in relation to business and professional communication in foreign languages. Articles and studies on all these topics are welcome: languages for specific purposes (LSP), language teaching methodology, linguistics, pragmatics, cultural and literary studies, as well as wider educational projects and programmes and their implications for the professional or vocational development of learners.

SYNERGY aims to be a vehicle for stimulating and disseminating innovative ideas, and helping to increase and diversify scientific research, by acting as a medium for informed and lively discussion among members of the academic community in Romania and abroad. Since progress in one domain triggers development and change in many others, so as to ensure closer links between research teams and stimulate the sharing of ideas and experience, the Journal welcomes contributions on partial and final results of research projects carried out within the various departments of the Bucharest University of Economic Studies and in other higher education institutions.
