Academic Writing for Graduate Students: essential tasks and skills

John M. Swales & Christine B. Freak

This edition of "Academic Writing for Graduate Students" includes many special features: it is based on the large body of research literature dealing with the features of academic (or research) English and extensive classroom experience; it is as much concerned with developing academic writers as it is improving academic texts; it provides assistance with writing part-genres (problem-solutions and Methods and Discussion sections) and genres (book reviews and research papers); its approach is analytical and rhetorical - users apply analytical skills to the discourses of their chosen disciplines to explore how effective academic writing is achieved; it includes a rich variety of tasks and activities, ranging from small-scale language points to issues of how students can best position themselves as junior researchers.

The book is available at the Library; call. Nο.: 808.0428 Swa.
