Practical Tips for Writing Academic English that Gets Published

This presentation offers practical tips regarding the process of academic writing, from start to finish, for both publication and conference presentation. Specific tips include advice for choosing an appropriate subject and arguing for its significance; selecting a relevant theory to serve as an analytical frame; how to apply that analytical frame to the chosen subject; making a coherent case via illustrative examples and other artifactual evidence; the importance of connecting that analysis to broader cultural, political, and social concerns; and, summing up a study's key findings and identifying its strengths and weaknesses. Additional tips offer insights into finding a suitable and receptive venue, when in a journal's editorial cycle it is best to submit work, tactics for dealing with writer's block, and common grammar pitfalls to avoid.
