Academic Writing (2/2)

Zweiter Termin einer englischsprachigen Veranstaltung für Promovierende und Postdocs aller Fachbereiche

Campus Landau The workshop will provide PhD students with an introduction to academic writing, including helpful input on the language used, the potential pitfalls, and strategies for improving and editing texts. All participants will be given feedback and will therefore leave the workshop with a better awareness of their strengths and weaknesses.


We will look at:

  • academic style – degrees of formality
  • writing readable, accurate and concise sentences
  • language and verb tenses used in various parts of the paper
  • paragraphs and topic sentences
  • cohesion and flow
  • strategies for finding and correcting errors, typical mistakes
  • editing and peer-editing
  • useful phrases and Internet resources

The PhD students will be required to bring a piece of their own scientific writing (200-250 words), which has not been corrected or edited by colleagues, to the workshop.
