Most work on writing and publication processes focuses on writing support for undergraduates or postgraduates writing in the disciplines, while work on academic identities frequently considers development as a university teacher. This essay considers the reviewing process for academics who write, whether doctoral. Since classrooms are not built the same, why should materials be? Our academic authors and editors share our passion for titles that reclaim the teachable moment for their course. Here's the story of one professor who broke the mold.

Thinking critically is essential for your research.

The topic of academic writing has been popular in the blogosphere and Twittersphere in the past couple of weeks. I think it all came from Stephen Walt’s Foreign Policy piece “On Writing Well“. Several fellow academics responded to Walt’s scathing critique of our scholarly writing (read Stephen Saideman, Jay Ulfelder, Dan Drezner, Marc Bellemare, Thomas Pepinsky, Greg Weeks, and I’m sure a few more that I missed. Yes, I also know that I linked to political science and public policy professors. First, because they were the ones who responded to Walt’s critique and commented on it.

Seminar Description of Academic Writing and Publishing in English wissenschaftliches Schreiben auf Englisch Speak to other academics in your own institution or at a conference, in any field, and ask them what they do. The reply will always be the same: a precise explanation of some aspects of their more puzzling research interests. No academic would ever reply to such a question by saying, 'I am a writer,' even though that is what we all are. To become a successful academic is to become a successful academic writer; anyone who thinks otherwise will soon be looking for a new job. Yet it is a common academic habit to try to ignore or deny the nuts and bolts of good writing practice, perhaps hoping that expertise in the esoteric will in some way make up for their shortcomings in these areas. Just as an expertise in the esoteric contributes little to changing a tire or grocery shopping, however, so it similarly fails in writing a research paper in an acceptable style. The content may be good, but it will have a rough ride if the structure is poor. Shaking academics out of their complacency and making them accept the realities of authorship is probably a Utopian dream. Speaking as an editor, I recognize that this means there will always be plenty of remedial work both for me and for my reviewers, bless them all.

Academic Writing and Publishing guides the reader through the process of writing and publishing. You may have noticed that Ph D2Published has been very busy recently chairing live chats on Twitter (#acwri) and collecting various blog posts, all concerned with the process of academic writing. Charlotte initially set up Ph D2Published to find out more about academic publishing and to make use of it as a space built around peer-to-peer sharing. As Managing Editor I have tried to emulate this ethos and have found this to be incredibly useful so far. With this in mind, I am currently engaging in regular dialogues through both this site and other forms of social media to learn more about what is essentially the foundation of academic publishing; writing. Spurred on to some extent by Charlottes Ac Bo Wri Mo initiative back in November 2011 and a chat initiated by Dr Jeremy Segrott on Twitter, it is clear that many academics have the desire to discuss and explore issues around their shared experiences of academic writing and how this may subsequently lead to different forms of written publication. In participating in this newly established online community and with the desire to share what I am learning, I have come across several useful resources that focus on just this topic and I wanted to share one in particular here today. Carol Smart’s discussion of academic writing is interesting because she explicitly confronts the particular challenges and problems faced by academic writers and offers potential shifts in thinking that may make dealing with these challenges more workable. In The Emotional Challenges of Writing (available as a video and a written transcript) Carol draws on personal experiences to think about how difficulties in writing may be overcome.
