It's generally not recommended for academic writers to use the second person "you" in formal writing, especially in scholarly or research papers. Academic writing typically aims to maintain an objective and professional tone, and the use of "you" can come across as too informal or conversational.

Instead, academic writers often use the third-person point of view or passive voice to convey information and arguments. This helps to maintain objectivity and distance the writer from the reader, focusing more on presenting evidence and analysis rather than addressing the reader directly.
