This chapter focuses on the text work and the ways in which identity work is tangled up in what and how DRs write. It addresses the difficulty of finding one's place in the literature. The chapter offers a reframing idea of taking a stand. It then explores three strategies for getting control of the textual game: scoping, mapping and focusing in, locating one's own research in the literature and diagnosing the most common authority problems when writing about the literature. The chapter argues that writing literature reviews is the quintessential site of identity work, where DRs enter occupied territory - with all the danger and dread this metaphor implies - including possible ambushes, barbed wire fences and unknown academics that patrol the boundaries of well-known fields. It offers three strategies: Scoping, Mapping and Focusing in (ScoMaFo), Creating A Research Space (CARS), and diagnosing common authority problems.
