Abstract This study seeks to explore the rhetorical organization and potential problems of the literature review sections of the research articles published by Turkish scholars in the field of English language teaching (ELT) and applied linguistics. Employing content analysis, the study analyzed 100 research articles published. To analyze the articles, a rubric was prepared on the basis of relevant literature. The findings of the study showed that appropriate paraphrasing lacks and critical evaluation is not adequately placed in citation preferences of the investigated articles.
