About the book
Jane Bottomley is a writing instructor at Centre for Academic Writing and Rhetoric, and recently released this revised and updated second edition of Academic writing for international students of science. This is an accessible companion designed to help science and technology students develop the knowledge, skills and strategies needed to produce clear and coherent academic writing in their university assignments.
Using authentic texts to explore the nature of scientific writing, the book covers key areas such as scientific style, effective sentence and paragraph structure, and coherence in texts and arguments. Throughout the book, a range of tasks offers the opportunity to put theory into practice. The explorative tasks allow you to see how language works in a real scientific context, practice and review tasks consolidate learning and help you to develop your own writing skills, and reflective tasks encourage you to think about your own knowledge and experience, and bring this to bear on your own writing journey at university.
Key features of the new edition include:
• Updated content and additional tasks throughout
• New chapters, covering writing in the sciences and writing at university
• The introduction of reflective tasks
• Up-to-date examples of authentic scientific writing
Clear, engaging and easy-to-use, this is an invaluable tool for the busy science or technology student looking to improve their writing and reach their full academic potential.
