Citation practice found in research articles published by Myanmar Academy Of Arts And Sciences (MAAS)
- In the past two decades, there has been a steadily increasing number of studies which pay a stress on different aspects of research writing. Among the discourse elements in research writing, citations are an indispensible feature of an academic paper. Citation is important to any academic writer. This research investigates the citation practice found in the research articles published by the Myanmar Academy of Arts and Science (MAAS). The function of each citation was identified on the basis of Thompson and Tribble’s (2001) model. The function of integral citation and non-integral citation were used in this research. The integral citation includes three types: verb controlling, naming and non-citation whereas the non-integral citation includes four types: source, identification, reference and origin. However, in science specialization, nonintegral citation outnumbers integral citation. Non-integral citations of source are more significantly seen in the articles of science specializations than in those of arts specializations. The use of non-integral citation of origin was not found in either of the research articles of arts and science. Integral citation of verb controlling was more prominently seen in the science articles than in the arts articles.
