£9.99

Product description

218pp. 2009. Paperback. 2nd edition. Very good condition. Some minor rubbing to cover corners. Faint crease to front cover. Fine spine. Gift message written in first page, otherwise clean text.


"Academics are expected to write but seldom consider and discuss the nature of academic writing. As a result, the practice is shrouded in mystery. Writing for Academic Journals makes explicit much of what is normally opaque and it should be among the first ports of call for any academic who is contemplating getting published. This new edition achieves the near-impossible: improving on what was already acknowledged as a first-rate compendium". Professor Ronald Barnett, Institute of Education, University of London, UK "Our experience is that Rowena's practical approach works for busy academic staff. Not only does it enable them to increase their publication output and meet deadlines, but it boosts enthusiasm for writing and stimulates creative thinking." Kate Morss, Director, Queen Margaret University College, Edinburgh, UK "How many of us find the prospect of writing for an academic journal a daunting task sointimidating that barely an undetectable degree of arm twisting is required to furtherrelegate the task to an ever lower position on our priority list? Sound familiar? Well lookno further, those woes may be on the run thanks to this well thought-out and very readable short book." Ian Pearce,Consultant Urological Surgeon,Manchester Royal Infirmary This book unravels the process of writing academic papers. It tells readers what good papers look like and how they can be written. Busy academics must develop productive writing practices quickly. No one has time for trial and error. To pass external tests of research output we must write to a high standard while juggling other professional tasks. This may mean changing our writing behaviours. Writing for Academic Journals, Second Edition, has been comprehensively updated to include the most recent research and theory in order to provide new knowledge on writing across the disciplines. Drawing on her extensive experience of running writing workshops and working closely with academics on developing writing, Rowena Murray offers practical and tested strategies for good academic writing.
