"The volume as a whole brings together a truly unique variety of voices and intellectual resources that distinguish it from other monographs and volumes on academic discourse. A particularly attractive feature is that among the globally diffused methods represented, academic voices of the Nordic region can be distinguished and appreciated, in the KIAP project and others. This range is made more valuable by the various perspectives offered across studies and approaches on the specific areas of academic discourse, such as author positioning, evaluation, and conditionality. [...] In our view, this gathering of contributions by distinguished scholars in the field presents an exciting intellectual and geographical cross-section of academic discourse scholarship."
