About this book

This popular, student-friendly, and comprehensive introduction to academic writing in different disciplines now includes more exercises and a new section on research ethics. 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. Like the full text, it focuses on writing as a diverse and collaborative, rather than rule-bound and goal-oriented, activity, and includes extensive discussions of genre and audience.

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.
