I am interested in researching the arguments for, and against the use of
passive voice in scientific communication, particularly in the research
article. I have started with an article in Paul V. Anderson, et al. _New
Essays_. I will welcome other bibliographical references dealing with
this topic both in research literature and in textbooks. Please send your
suggestions to my address at: oswal -at- frank -dot- mtsu -dot- edu

Thank you for your support!
