The European English Messenger used to carry advertisements in its paper issues. As our journal goes online from the Summer of 2016, it is now possible to place advertisements in the website of The ESSE Messenger.
The link to each issue of The ESSE Messenger is distributed to over 7,000 lecturers and professors of English in European higher education. The ESSE Messenger is the best single medium for reaching all the specialists in English Studies in European higher education.
(a) Advertising on the ESSE website is restricted to products and services connected with culture, education and research: college opportunities, publishers of journals and books, theatres, cultural exhibitions, summer schools, etc. ESSE reserves the right to refuse an advertisement judged to be unsuitable.
(b) The advertisements can be placed at the top of any one or of several of the following pages, just below the title of the page and above the editorial content:
- the Messenger homepage: http://essenglish.org/messenger/
- the Messenger blog page: http://essenglish.org/messenger/all-posts/ where all the information concerning ESSE is regularly posted
- the page of the current issue of The ESSE Messenger (first issue to be posted in June 2016).
The choice of the page(s) where the advertisements will be displayed is left to the advertisers.
Several banners can be carried at the top of each page.
The editor may decide to separate the banners from the editorial content by a thin grey line at his discretion.

The banners can include links to the advertiser’s websites.
