Keeping the Rhetoric Orthodox: Forum Control in Science.
Sullivan, Dale L.
Technical Communication Quarterly, v9 n2 p125-46 Spr 2000
Considers how academic disciplines certify knowledge through publication in scholarly journals; therefore, peer review of journal articles is one method of authorizing someone's speech. Draws examples from the sciences. Discusses four methods of forum control: peer review, denial of forum, public correction, and published ridicule. Concludes that taking a closer look at forum control helps demythologize science. (SC)
