Abstract: This study used writing samples, digital checklists, peer and self-evaluations, and interviews to explore the influences of digital checklists and genre writing instructional strategies on eleven Taiwanese emergent researchers' method designs and writing. This study yielded the following findings. First, digital checklists provided the emergent researchers with step-by-step guidance in writing the method section. Second, genre writing instruction, consisting of the instructor's modelling, explanations, task designs, provision of research projects and guiding questions, accompanied by peer and self-evaluations, facilitated the emergent researchers' awareness and fostered their competence in academic writing.

Keywords: academic writing; digital checklists; emergent research; genre writing instruction; method section.
