Title: The Science Review Article
Subtitle: An Opportune Genre in the Construction of Science
Written By: Judy Noguchi
URL: http://www.peterlang.com/Index.cfm?vLang=E&vSiteID=4&vSiteName=BookDetail%2Ecfm&VID=10426
Series Title: Linguistic Insights. Studies in Language and Communication. Vol. 17
Description:

This volume presents the science review article as an opportune genre for
introducing rhetorical diversity into scientific communities. First, it
discusses
the theoretical issues involved in applying the notion of a discourse
community to that of an international science discourse community and
examines the practical issues faced by writers who must use a language
system that is not their mother tongue in order to become active
participants. The review article is argued to be important in shaping the
views of scientific discourse communities. Next, based on specialist
informant and linguistic findings, review articles are classified into four
different types according to their focus: history, status quo, theory/model or
issue. Finally, practical suggestions for teaching how to write a review
article
are offered based on a framework of Moves and Steps, which can be
expanded to the teaching of other genres.

Contents:

Discourse communities and scientific genres
The science review article and its place in the discourse community
Construction of knowledge
English for specific purposes
Genre analysis
