Professor Alessandro Benati is Professor of Second Language Acquisition and Head of School of Languages and Area Studies at the University of Portsmouth. He is internationally known for his research in second language learning and teaching, with special emphases on processing instruction. He is a pioneering researcher in the area of second language acquisition (SLA) and has built a reputation on two fronts. On one front, he is a premier Italian language scholar producing the most empirical work on the teaching and acquisition of Italian in the world. On the other front, he is a scholar in the more general field of instructed SLA, with an emphasis on the effects of formal instruction on the acquisition of grammatical properties by second language learners. He has a strong publications record with 12 established monographs, chapters and articles in international journals (Language Awareness, IRAL, and Language Teaching Research).

Description

In this chapter, the format of the standard research paper will be presented and discussed. Even though every research paper is unique in content and structure, there is an organizational pattern that writer/researcher tend to follow and it is considered typical and standard. One Experimental Study (Benati, Lee, and Hikima 2010) and one Case Study (Nabei and Swain 2002) will be used to provide examples and to illustrate how these components are included in a paper from two different research frameworks.
