Academic Writing, Third Edition

The Complete Guide

By Steven C. Roe, Pamela H. den Ouden


The challenges of teaching and learning academic-level writing may be greater than ever before due to the prevalence of writing practices in social media and the growing internationalization of post-secondary education. The authors of Academic Writing use discipline-based research papers to discuss preliminary steps such as research, note-taking, summarizing, and drafting a proposal. They trace the development of scholarly papers through introductions, core paragraphs, and conclusions, and they close with essential chapters on writing in the sciences, and revision and proofreading. In its third edition, Academic Writing now offers chapter learning objectives, annotated passages that illustrate aspects of academic style, and a glossary. Furthermore, every chapter ends with articles that can be used for stylistic analysis. These rich pedagogical features accompanied by the authors’ clear step-by-step instructions make this book an ideal guide for all students who want to improve their academic writing skills.
