Academics are expected to write but seldom consider and discuss the nature of academic writing. As a result, the practice is shrouded in mystery. "Writing for Academic Journals" makes explicit much of what is normally opaque and it should be among the first ports of call for any academic who is contemplating getting published. This new edition achieves the near-impossible: improving on what was already acknowledged as a first-rate compendium' - Professor Ronald Barnett, Institute of Education, University of London, UK. 'Our experience is that Rowena's practical approach works for busy academic staff. Not only does it enable them to increase their publication output and meet deadlines, but it boosts enthusiasm for writing and stimulates creative thinking' - Kate Morss, Director, Queen Margaret University College, Edinburgh, UK. This book unravels the process of writing academic papers. It tells readers what good papers look like and how they can be written. Busy academics must develop productive writing practices quickly. No one has time for trial and error. To pass external tests of research output we must write to a high standard while juggling other professional tasks.
