I’m always looking for advice to share with students and colleagues about academic writing. One of my favorite blogs, The Impact Blog from the London School of Economics and Political Science, has recently published a number of excellent pieces:
- Writing the Introduction to a Journal Article: Say What the Reader is Going to Say and Why it is Important, by Pat Thomson
- Write as if You Don’t Have the Data: The Benefits of a Free-Writing Phase, by Howard Aldritch
- Five Strategies to Get your Academic Writing “Unstuck”, by Dr Raul Pacheco-Vega
- How to Write a Blogpost from your Journal Article in Eleven Easy Steps, by Patrick Dunleavy
All four of these articles are part of the blog’s Academic Writing Series. You can find out more or contribute to the conversation at Twitter using #AcWri2016.
And, if you’re looking for great resource, there’s no replacement for Strunk & White’s classic The Elements of Style.
