Article
To state that a substantial amount of academic practices are nowadays making use of digital devices, platforms and media in one way or another is an obvious thing to say. The affordances that the digital technicalities offer are having an enormous impact not only on the dissemination of research output but also on the generation of knowledge itself...

Digital discourse in scholarly and scientific communication has lately become a main object of study in discourse analysis, linguistics and associated fields. The increasing demands placed on scientists to disseminate and gain visibility for their research and on institutions to account for expenditure on research and innovation, in combination wit...
Presentation
In the last few years, the web has become a privileged access platform for knowledge for an increasingly globalized society who uses English as a vehicle of international communication. The spread of digital platforms has brought with it the emergence of new modes of communication, some of them based on already existing ones, some others, totally n...
Conference Paper
A deep process of evolution and change is affecting discursive academic practices, mainly due to the increasing demands to gain visibility and to the affordances of digital platforms, which enhance such visibility. The way researchers project themselves has been studied through the analysis of various notions and frameworks, and metadiscourse is pe...

Full-text available
The fact that in the last few decades English has become the international language of scientific communication has brought with it an increasing pressure on non-Anglophone academics to disseminate their research internationally in English.

s play a major role as time-saving and information-managing devices in our globalized world of scientific communication. In many non-Anglophone academic journals the pressure to disseminate results internationally is manifested in the requirement to write an English version of the abstract, usually a requisite for the journal to be included in inte...

Article
Abstract In our current globalised world of scientific and academic practices, research within English for Academic Purposes (EAP), and more specifically, English for Research Publication Purposes (ERPP) has undergone an exponential upsurge. The present study is part of a wider research project, led by the ENEIDA research group, aiming among other...
Book
The book brings together a rich variety of perspectives on abstracts as an academic genre. Drawing on genre analysis and corpus linguistics, the studies collected here combine attention to generic structure with emphasis on language variation and change, thus offering a multi-perspective view on a genre that is becoming one of the most important in...

As Martin and Rose (2008: 44) state, “stories are central genres in all cultures, in some form in almost every imaginable situation and stage of life”. Taking this as a starting point, the present study explores the narrative perspective in academic book reviews across cultures. Book reviews stem from the disciplinary communities’ need to make thei...
Article
Full-text available
The use of a critical voice in book reviews seems to depend on factors rooted in the discipline community reviewers belong to and on the language and culture which hosts the review. Adopting a cross-cultural perspective, this study analyses 60 book reviews from British and Spanish history journals in terms of the entities and aspects evaluated and...
Article
Full-text available
The widespread use of English as the language for the dissemination of scientific knowledge is placing increasing demands on non-native scholars to use English as their language of research and publication. This can result in non-native scholars experiencing difficulties in drafting papers that are linguistically and rhetorically appropriate. This...
Article
The presentation of scientific discourse in academic texts is characterized, among other features, by the construction of an authorial voice which projects an image of the authors themselves and of their relation to their arguments, community, and readers. The construction of the author's voice is here explored in the frequency of use, distribution...
Chapter
In the last few years book reviews have become central to the exploration of academic genres. But, how evaluative is this evaluative genre? Much has been said and written about evaluation. This ‘elusive concept’ (Bondi and Mauranen, 2003, p. 269) has been approached from a variety of perspectives and under a myriad of labels (e.g. evaluation, modal...

In recent times, the teaching of translation has witnessed an increasing application of corpora as useful tools in the design of class materials, research for teaching purposes as well as in the factors which intervene in the process of translation.

Chapter
It is now generally agreed that research articles (RAs) are the outcome of a complex and sometimes difficult balance writers intend to achieve between the need to claim significance for their research and the need to show modesty towards the disciplinary community they belong to. The search for this balance is manifested in the use, for instance, o...

Full-text available
Research article (RA) abstracts are important instruments to control and manage scientific information, which are accepted to play a promotional role in academic communities. As regards their formal features, they display a conventionalised structure based on moves. The purpose of this paper is to investigate the metadiscoursal devices which sustai...

This article will report on a small-scale study which focuses on the analysis of connectors (conjunctions and discourse markers) in thematic position in English translations of Spanish tourist literature. The concept of 'theme' adopted here draws on the explicit descriptions provided by systemic grammar (Halliday 1985). The study will be carried ou...

The present paper discusses the possibility of adopting a politeness theory approach to the various problems raised by the speaker's choice of Theme. The discussion will focus on the case of the clause complexes which contain an adverbial subordinate of condition. In the present paper I argue that the ordering 'subordinate + main' is often perceive...

Project
The spread of electronic platforms as well as the use of English as a vehicle of international communication have led to the emergence of new discursive practices and the adaptation of existing ones to the digital mode. Digital affordances, and the immediacy, visibility, and connectedness they bring along, have changed the way we communicate and project our identities. They have also changed the way we approach texts as objects of analysis. This special issue aims to become a forum for some of the latest contributions to this topic with approaches which include computer-mediated discourse analysis, pragmatics, genre-based analysis, metadiscourse, corpus studies and multimodality. It will be published in the European Journal of English Studies (EJES), vol. 25 (2021) (https://www.tandfonline.com/toc/neje20/current)
Project
In this Special Issue we seek to publish articles which explore the scientists' complex and challenging discursive practices which attempt to communicate results and new knowledge not only to internal or expert members of their communities but also to external or non-expert, diverse readers. With this Special Issue, we seek to respond to questions such as the following: - To what extent does parascientific communication differ from scientific communication? Which features characterize them? - Which new discoursal practices are emerging in response to boundary erosion in scientific communication? What do they entail? Who undertakes these? What functions do they fulfill? - Can well-established methodological approaches be useful and valid to explore digital communication, either scientific or parascientific?What new perspectives might contribute to the exploration of new practices? We welcome contributions that address the analysis of scientific and parascientific communication taking one or several of the following theoretical and methodological perspectives, among which are included: - Genre Studies - Pragmatic Approaches - Multimodal Analysis - Ethnographic Explorations - Intercultural and Multilingual Approaches - Translation Studies Full details of the special issue can be found here: https://www.mdpi.com/journal/publications/special_issues/Sci_parasci_commun
