Swales and Feak’s English in Today’s Research World (2000), (ETRW ),1 is an advanced academic writing guide for graduate students and junior scholars who are non-native English speakers. The book is grounded in current conceptions of academic discourse analysis and draws on research which shows that students have specialised communicative needs defined by the practices of their disciplines. By basing pedagogical decisions on this research, ETRW effectively interprets how particular aspects of the real communicative world work and translates these understandings into classroom applications.
