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.
