The topic of Metadiscourse and related notions (authorial stance, hedging , citation practices and so on) have received a great deal of attention and there are quite various investigations all over the world exploring them in different genres. Considering the value and prominence of Metadiscourse, we felt that it would be a great opportunity to bring researchers together to revisit Metadiscourse from conceptual and methodological perspectives in different genres. There are two publication plans by selecting the best papers presented at MAG 2017 an edited book by Peter Lang and another edited volume by Palgrave Macmillan. We are also negotiating a special issue published by a reputable journal.
