Academic Writing for Graduate Students


Explains understanding the intended audience, the purpose of the paper, and academic genres; includes the use of task-based methodology, analytic group discussion, and genre consciousness-raising; shows how to write summaries and critiques; features "language focus" sections that address linguistic elements as they affect the wider rhetorical objectives; and helps students position themselves as junior scholars in their academic communities.

Among the many changes in the third edition:

    • newer, longer, and more authentic texts and examples
    • greater discipline variety in texts (added texts from hard sciences and engineering)
    • more in-depth treatment of research articles
    • greater emphasis on vocabulary issues
    • revised flow-of-ideas section
    • additional tasks that require students to do their own research
    • more corpus-informed content

    The Commentary has also been revised and expanded.

    This edition of Academic Writing for Graduate Students, like its predecessors, has many special features:

    • It is based on the large body of research literature dealing with the features of academic (or research) English and extensive classroom experience.
    • It is as much concerned with developing academic writers as it is improving academic texts.
    • It provides assistance with writing part-genres (problem-solutions and Methods and Discussion sections) and genres (book reviews,research papers).
    • Its approach is analytical and rhetorical-users apply analytical skills to the discourses of their chosen disciplines to explore how effective academic writing is achieved.
    • It includes a rich variety of tasks and activities, ranging from small-scale language points to issues of how students can best position themselves as junior researchers.
