Abstract

This study examines the discursive structures and linguistic features of research articles (RAs) written in Indonesian by Indonesian writers with the aim of exploring how Indonesian writers rhetorically describe their research methods in their RAs. The corpus for this study consists of 51 selected RAs published mainly in university-based social science and humanity journals in Indonesia. The seven-move structure (SMS) model for RA method sections was employed. The results showed that, first, the SMS model can capture broad communicative units or moves in the Indonesian RA method section but not smaller communicative units or steps. Second, in terms of the occurrence of moves and steps, the Indonesian RA method section is generally similar to the ones in English. Third, the use of discourse and linguistic markers is quite frequent in the Indonesian RA method sections. It is believed that Indonesian writers will not find it rhetorically difficult to write the method section of RAs in English as far as they are well informed of common linguistic features of English academic texts.
