"So What's New?" The Discussions in Medical Research Articles.
Azirah, Hasim
Journal of Pan-Pacific Association of Applied Linguistics, v4 n1 p127-52 2000
Examines the discussion of results in medical research articles to determine the strategies used by the writers to persuade the readers that their research is either new or a development of previous work and that their study is a contribution to a specialist field. Twenty-four research articles were analyzed using Swales moves analysis as well as the choice of lexical items in the moves observed. (Author/VWL)
