Professional Academic Writing in a Global Context

Project Details

Project Website: http://creet.open.ac.uk/projects/paw

The writing practices of the wider research community are examined through the ‘Professional Academic Writing in a Global Context’ project. This includes a longitudinal ethnographic study of the politics and practices of writing for publication.

Drawing on findings from the project our researchers have developed a mentoring programme aimed at supporting writers through initial drafting of an academic paper towards publication. The programme has now been implemented by an international journal.
