About | Academic writing style for research



This session aims to improve researchers’ understanding and skills in writing and editing their work, either for a thesis or for other publications.

The approach taken is that the best way to be a better writer is to be a better reader – something which is best done by comparing different styles of writing. Practical techniques of writing and editing are also covered with a chance to try out some of these techniques in practical work.

This session is suitable for both research students and staff and is also part of the staff researcher development programme. Staff should book using the UNITY development database.
