中文摘要

Titles are a vital component of research literature. Their content often determines whether an article is selected for further reading or not. Research article titles must attract and inform the reader. Since the content of review articles is not new, their titles must attract the reader to a larger degree rather than provide specific information. Clever titles are seldom used in research articles, but they are used in review articles. This study investigated the disciplinal use of clever titles in review articles within the Current Opinion journal series. The frequency of clever title usage by the biological science disciplines represented in the sample ranged from 4.68% to 16.07%. The nationality of authors was examined to determine the extent to which non-native English speakers contribute to the use of clever titles. Authors from non-English speaking nations do give clever titles to their review articles, but not to the extent of authors from English speaking nations.
