Abstract: 

Recently genre scholars have stated that writing research article is a challenging task assigned to the university students at both graduate and undergraduate levels, and it becomes more challenging if it has to be in a foreign language. On the other hand, recent research in the field of language teaching has shown that conscious knowledge of genre structures plays an important role in effective use of English in academic settings. That is, if the students become aware of genre conventions, they may combine the linguistic elements to serve their communicative purpose more effectively. Thus, following the Swalsian genre analysis, the present study investigated the move structure of the Discussion section of articles published in seven language teaching journals. The results indicated that there is a set of moves comprising the Discussion section of these articles. Moreover, the move structure of Discussion section is studied, the most frequent moves of the Discussion section are identified, and the move order of this section is determined. In addition, the most frequent grammatical forms associated with each move are presented.
