The Journal of English for Academic Purposes takes note of the reissue of Swales 1981 monograph Aspects of Article Introductions, now containing an Introduction to the Reissue by Swales himself, which is “as interesting as the monograph itself.” Swales’ early work introduces ‘genre’ as a concept, calling it ‘the key to the future’ in its Introduction to the Reissue. The reviewer calls Swales’ work “useful and stimulating” and considers “we should thank John Swales for the decision to make Aspects of Article Introductions accessible to a wide readership, especially researchers in the field of EAP.”
