This case study explores how online news genres take up knowledge claims from a…

Where individuals reside in the hierarchy of membership is determined by not only what they talk and write about, but how. Yet, there are many factors that can impact newcomers' acculturation into a disciplinary…

Mehlenbacher, Ashley Rose – Written Communication, 2019
The research article is a staple genre in the economy of scientific research, and although research articles have received considerable treatment in genre scholarship, little attention has been given to the important development of Registered Reports.

Durst, Sarah – Written Communication, 2019
