  • Can you tell the difference between a good and a poor abstract? 
  • Are you curious about typical mistakes people make in research article introductions? 
  • Do you know how to write for audiences used to viewing texts through the lens of Anglo-American writing norms? 

This workshop addresses these questions and gives you a deeper understanding of the characteristics of successful publishable research articles. More specifically, we cover the following: 

  • Intercultural differences in writing styles
  • Rhetorical moves in abstracts, introductions, and discussions
  • Titles
  • Clarity and style
  • Writing process

In the workshop, we analyze authentic texts and engage you in activities to illustrate the principles of creating logical, coherent and reader-friendly research articles.
