Journal article introductions must do a lot of heavy lifting in relatively few words. In this workshop, we will analyze examples of journal article introductions to decipher the "moves" writers must make to present their research effectively. Participants must bring two journal articles from a top journal in their field or a journal to which they wish to submit. Participants may bring a current draft of their own introduction, but participants without drafts are welcome, too.
