PARADA, Alejandro E.. Revisiting academic writing in Librarianship and Information Science. Formalism versus openness?. Inf. cult. soc. [online]. 2020, n.42, pp.5-10. ISSN 1514-8327.

The following editorial analyzes some aspects that have been little addressed about the "accepted forms" by scientific journals in the production of texts. The present article, circumscribed to the subjectivity of personal opinion, is not intended to question the discursive morphologies of academic articles, neither the practices nor the uses of publishing researches. On the contrary, based on the consolidation of these "formalities", the need arises not to adhere exclusively to those expressions of discourse with the aim proposed to recreate academic writing from other angles that have not been considered so far. Therefore, it is suggested the possibility of appealing to other rhetorical and discursive forms not so strongly structured in their wording, which can provide novel approaches to the objects of study of the Humanities and Social Sciences.
