  1. Genre Analysis of Research Proposals [Download]

    Title: Genre Analysis of Research Proposals
    Creator: Haiying Feng (City University of Hong Kong, Hong Kong) Ling Shi (University of British Columbia, Canada)
    Description: Compared with other academic writing, the research grant proposal involves a high degree of marketisation with an attempt to sell the proposed research as well as the researcher. Instead of a general audience, it addresses two different groups of readers: peer reviewers who are highly informed about the topic, and members of the grant review committee who might or might not be engaged in the same research area.
