The work explores how writers from academic disciplines present themselves and their knowledge claims to their readership through an analysis of the research article, the genre which perhaps most accurately portrays 'state-of-the-art' academic production in the world today. Furthermore, it seeks to gauge how scholars construct disciplinary identity through parameters such as the ways they have of displaying their ideas or assumptions, the forms of argumentation they employ to persuade their readers, and how they represent themselves and others in their texts.

Abstract

The work explores how writers from academic disciplines present themselves and their knowledge claims to their readership through an analysis of the research article, the genre which perhaps most accurately portrays 'state-of-the-art' academic production in the world today. Furthermore, it seeks to gauge how scholars construct disciplinary identity through parameters such as the ways they have of displaying their ideas or assumptions, the forms of argumentation they employ to persuade their readers, and how they represent themselves and others in their texts.
