This chapter concerns the textual organisation of academic research as templates for thinking. I focus specifically on the structural ideals that appeared in the previous analysis and their potential consequences for thinking. The discussion explores how structural demands may create templates for thinking that privilege specific parts of academic research. I argue that even though thinking within a template does not entail that scientific practices embody a specific set of chronological sequences, it may privilege specific dimensions of academic work and their teleology. This specifically applies to IMRAD, but the implications extend further because when thinking is subordinated a model of linearity, not only errors but also multi-dimensional thinking is suppressed. Thinking along the line within a standardised template may yield a clearer univocal picture of reality, but it potentially undermines the progression of knowledge and repress alternate ways of thinking and errors.
