Academic Writing: An Introduction is a concise version of the complete Academic Writing, designed to be more compact and accessible for use in one-term writing courses.

This new edition has been revised throughout and contains many new exercises, updated examples, an expanded discussion of research writing in the sciences, new glossary entries, and a new section on research ethics and the moral compass of the disciplines. Academic Writing: An Introduction features: new sections on ethics in research and in disciplines – explores questions of how different disciplines approach value-judgments or recommendations in academic writing; expanded and updated exercises in every chapter; and, comprehensive glossary of terms. Academic Writing: An Introduction approaches research in the disciplines not as an accumulation of facts, but as a collaborative process in which the student is part of the scholarly community.
