MEZA, Paulina. Author Positioning Strategies in Research Articles of Social Science, Humanities and Engineering: Experts versus Novices. Inf. tecnol. [online]. 2018, vol.29, n.2, pp.3-18. ISSN 0718-0764.

This study aims at analyzing how positioning strategies of expert and novice single authors vary in research articles from Social Science, Humanities and Engineering. An inductive-deductive method was used over a corpus consisting of 165 articles coded with 2956 strategies. Our positioning model consists of original analytical categories which were validated throughout different stages. The results showed that the contribution to knowledge strategy predominates in all fields and levels of expertise, followed by the characteristics of the researcher and the features of the text. The authors belonging to Engineering are the ones who gave more priority to the contribution to knowledge. As a conclusion, we highlight that authors and fields requiring more acknowledgement use more positioning strategies. These are, the novice authors and the Social Sciences area.

Palavras-chave : scientific discourse analysis; research article; strategic author positioning; scientific fields; levels of expertise.
