|One of the main concerns of scholars working in the field of EAP over the last 2|
decades has been raising the awareness of EAP students and publishers of genre
conventions in academic journals. In line with the above concern, many studies have
aimed at exploring the general characteristics of research articles (RAs) in the field.
Among these features, it seems that the generic moves and textuality have drawn the
attention of researchers. Therefore, the purpose of this study was twofold: (1) to
compare and contrast the Iranian local ESP journals with their international
counterparts in terms of the given features by drawing upon existing research, and
(2) to develop a more inclusive model for the analysis of moves and lexical cohesion
patterns (LCPs) in the Discussion sections of ESP RAs. Results showed that the
Discussion sections in the international ESP RAs tended to have a more cyclical
evaluative move mechanism compared with their Iranian local counterparts.
Findings also revealed that the organizational patterning and use of the LCPs in
consolidating the Results sections of the RAs have a dual intrinsic relationship.
Translation of such findings provides a better chance for nonnative EAP writers to
publish in international journals.
