The need to write for scholarly publications has triggered many investigations into research articles published in reputable and indexed journals. This paper attempts to compile and provide a review of the complete rhetorical organisation of research articles, from Abstract, Introduction, Method, Results to Discussion sections, from several studies. Though the studies revealed a general pattern in the writing of these research articles, it was also noted that different disciplines adopt certain localised structures, which characterize the discourse of the disciplines. Thus, this paper calls for the discovery of local structures of research articles from more disciplines to cater for the growing demands for scholarly publications, especially amongst researchers, academicians and postgraduates.
