Confluence has been the primary activity of EngQuest; however, it was apparent at Confluence V that a large number of professionals in the ESL/EFL field would be interested in research activities if more of them could be held under the banner of EngQuest. Thus, the focus will undergo a shift in 2014 and several small research projects will be undertaken to begin with. It will be the endeavor of EngQuest to facilitate collaborative research between institutions around the world.

It bears the ISSN 2320-7140 and is also edited by Dr. Anjali Patil-Gaikwad. In addition, the Editorial Board also boasts of
