This book helps students and researchers write better assignments, better dissertations, and better papers for publication. Characterizing academic writing as an integral part of the knowledge generation and dissemination process, it focuses on three main aspects: understanding research, documenting and sharing the process and results of research, and acknowledging the use of other people's ideas in the documentation.

The authors use various samples of good as well as defective writing to illustrate the features of academic writing. They describe in detail the structure and contents of academic papers, especially conceptual and empirical research papers for journals.

This lucidly written book will be a rich resource for MBA students and researchers working for MPhil and PhD degrees, especially in the fields of management, behavioural sciences and communications.

MEDIA REVIEWS

Using a lucid conversational style, the authors talk of the challenges that most writers face and offer a systematic approach to overcome it. Broadly divided in three parts, the book covers all the essentials that go in the generation of academic papers....Throughout the text, the authors have used extracts from student assignments, making it more readable and comprehensible from the student's perspective. The elaborate analysis that follows each extract helps the reader master the skill of reviewing not only others' works but also their own writing. While all the three parts of the book are interconnected, each unit can be read and assimilated as independent unit. Additional resources provided in Appendix 2 are a valuable add-on. This small, crisp book can be recommended for everyone who wants to master the skill of writing well. It is a `must read' for all management students and researchers for whom project reports and term papers from part of the academic curriculum.

-- Global Business Review

In days of rhetoric than logic, here comes a book of the latter sorts on some aspects of the former. `Academic Writing', so nice! ...When something comes well intended from two seasoned professors, almost every aspect of it can be well worn...So if you are an MBA student not wanting to get caught with the charges of plagiarism or a PhD scholar in management trying to improve your bad writing, you should read this book.... This book is...different from other books on academic writing as it covers the basic and necessary requirements of academic writing for the students of management.
