About the event

Disciplinary research plays an important role in informing the practitioner who reads, as a member of the discourse community. Much of an allied health professional’s work entails reading scientific texts, which are written differently from other types of texts, such as news reports and narratives. Decoding research articles requires the reader to know the rhetorical structure and language features typical in these texts, as well as the functions they serve, so as to more efficiently access the information provided. Drawing on genre-analytic frameworks for the different sections of research articles in health science, we will describe the structure and features and explain their textual and communicative functions. This session is particularly beneficial to young allied health professionals seeking to be informed by research in their area of work – and perhaps also to write their own research articles for publication.
