Academic Writing Skills

Tuesday, 19 May 2020

The purpose of this interactive session is to explore and practise useful strategies for producing clear, coherent and concise academic texts such as doctoral theses and journal papers. We will consider the importance of writing to prompts in 1. clarifying one’s aims, as author, of a piece of writing; and 2. identifying the needs and expectations of the target readership.

In the session, there will be opportunities to practise the strategies presented. Participants, therefore, will benefit most from the session if they bring in a piece of academic writing they are currently working on.

Dr Alison Yeung is an independent academic writing consultant who delivers writing training to a number of research institutions in the South of England.  Prior to that she was Academic Writing Teaching Fellow at the University of Surrey for seven years, where she designed and delivered writing training programmes and one-to-one support for doctoral researchers, early career researchers and academics. She is co-author of Mentoring to Empower Researchers and Inspiring Collaboration and Engagement, two new titles added to the Success in Research series published by Sage Publications.
