Research Article Introductions: Mind the Gap
March 22 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am
Research shows that academic writers of research article introductions typically establish a research space by pointing out a research gap that the current study addresses. The introduction offers an opportunity for writers to begin to tell the research story by articulating the gap and, then, taking their own conversational turn. But how do writers persuade readers that the research gap is consequential? Participants will write or revise a section of a research article introduction during dedicated writing time.
