  • Uniquely focuses on the concept of the research niche, on which no relevant studies having been undertaken so far
  • Contributes data from a wide range of academic genres and offers essential information on the ways in which these various genres interact in broader academic contexts
  • Provides data from a variety of cultural and linguistic contexts and will be of interest to readers from various cultures
  • Prepared by a team of internationally recognized authors
  • Will be of interest to both experienced and younger scholars who are beginning to present their research findings to international audiences
  • The studies included in this volume represent a variety of methodologies and employ different research tools, thus demonstrating the effectiveness of these methods and instruments in academic discourse studies

This book presents a collection of thematically focused articles addressing culture-specific features of academic communication, with a particular focus on communication conducted in English as an Additional Language and directed at multicultural audiences. It comprises papers arranged in four sections: Expert writers, Novice writers and readers, Conference participants, and Non-research academic genres. The book explicitly addresses and is centred upon the concept of a research niche understood as a space to be captured and populated, as a temporary location to move or grow out of in the course of individual professional development from novice to expert, and as a space to consciously reach beyond, delimited by one’s linguistic, cultural, educational, and geopolitical background. Here the niche is approached as a frame of reference for discussion of what is culture-bound, culture-sensitive, and culture-free in the academic community and its practices.
