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 will address these questions and will give you a deeper understanding of the characteristics of successful publishable research articles.

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