Research and Discussion Note: Naming Practices in Academic Writing: Another Thought.
Byrd, Patricia
English for Specific Purposes, v16 n4 p339-43 1997
Discusses problems arising in academic writing when name changes occur, making it difficult to keep up with a person's work over time and to know that the same person was involved in two publications with names that look different. Argues that these naming practices and others must be considered in preparing students from cultures with different naming practices for their academic study. (3 references) (Author/CK)
