This book describes the development of the scientific article from its
modest beginnings to the global phenomenon that it has become
today. Their analysis of a large sample of texts in French, English,
and German focuses on the changes in the style, organization, and
argumentative structure of scientific communication over time. They
also speculate on the future currency of the scientific article, as it
enters the era of the World Wide Web. This book is an outstanding
resource text in the rhetoric of science, and will stand as the
definitive study on the topic.
