This course is designed for researchers (graduate students and UNAM academics) who are interested in writing research articles and eventually publishing their work in English language journals.

In this course, we will focus on the analysis of published articles and discuss their functions and characteristics by exploring the linguistic decisions involved in writing a research article.  Additionally, we will look at the publication process by examining the requirements of several academic journals and the editor’s point of view.

After completing this course, you should have a better understanding of the research article as a genre and the processes that lie behind a successfully published text.
