This work is based on studies of the Bakhtin Circle and works in the Swales perspective. Privileging a qualitative approach and an analysis of interpretative nature, the investigation includes a review of 10 scientific articles of master's students of the Language and Linguistics areas. The analysis confirms that forms and purposes of usage of quoted speech in scientific articles of young researchers inevitably suffer strong determination of the section of the article in which they are mobilized, but also if the personal way the producer selects and organizes information in his text, revealing a complex and tense relationship between the style of the speech genre and the individual style of the producer.
