Abstract

As the movement of “writing in the disciplines” continues to advance in the university curriculum, anticipation increases for students to publish their own research material. However, there is a stark contrast between the genre of student writing and research journal articles. This project will evaluate the process that is required to construct a published research article. This includes defining the genre and discourse community that the biomedical engineering field uses to transform what is now a Biomedical Engineering Master's thesis into a potential journal article. This project aims to clearly construct this process using a variety of rhetorical strategies and to provide insight into the question: why can't a graduate/undergraduate student just write their own journal article?
