Abstract

Research discourses are permeated by metaphors. Published reports of research provide images of the research process and research practices. Discussions with researchers about these reports provides yet another source of metaphors and images. The latter source of metaphors is the focus of this chapter.

Impact and interest:

Citation countsare sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
