This study investigates the rhetorical organisation of Chinese research article introductions in the field of educational psychology using Swales’s (1990 & 2004) framework of move analysis. This study found similarities and differences between the selected Chinese research article introductions and Swales's CARS (Create a Research Space) model. Chinese research article introductions fit the CARS model in terms of the global organisation. However, both Chinese research article introductions and Swales's CARS model have subtle rhetorical differences. This study attributes the rhetorical similarities to the influence of English as an international language on publications in China. It ascribes the rhetorical differences partially to membership of a specific discourse community but mainly to potential cultural influences. The findings of this study have pedagogical implications.
