Abstract: This research analyzes academic journal articles in Pakistan by exploring their linguistic variations in different sections through multidimensional analysis. The analysis identifies the language of Pakistani academic journal articles. The corpus of Pakistani academic journal articles has been culled from a variety of research articles published in Pakistani academic journals. The data have been analyzed along five dimensions of Biber’s (1988) Multidimensional analysis model. The ANOVA result of Pakistani academic journal articles reveals significant differences among research sections of journal articles along Biber’s five dimensions. The finding describes the nature of Pakistani academic journal research articles as informational, impersonal, nonnarrative, elaborated, explicit, and nonpersuasive.
