There are many ways to introduce an academic essay or short paper.

Academic Phrasebank – Introducing work

Most academic writers, however, appear to do one or more of the following in their introductions: establish the context, background and/or importance of the topicindicate an issue, problem, or controversy in the field of studydefine the topic or key termsstate the purpose of the essay/writingprovide an overview of the coverage and/or structure of the writing In very short assignments, it is not uncommon for a writer to commence simply by stating the purpose of their writing. Introductions to research dissertations tend to be relatively short but quite complex in terms of their functional elements.

Some of the more common elements include: Academic Phrasebank – Referring to Sources. One of the distinguishing features of academic writing is that it is informed by what is already known, what work has been done before, and/or what ideas and models have already been developed.

Academic Phrasebank – Referring to Sources

Thus, in academic texts, writers frequently make reference to other studies and to the work of other authors. It is important that writers guide their readers through this literature. This section of Academic Phrasebank lists some of the phrases that writers may use for this purpose. A note on the literature review: It is the purpose of the literature review section of a paper or dissertation to show the reader, in a systematic way, what is already known about the research topic as a whole, and to outline the key ideas and theories that help us to understand this. As well as being systematic, the review should be evaluative and critical of the studies or ideas which are relevant to the current work. General descriptions of the relevant literature Research into X has a long history.

Academic Phrasebank – Describing Methods. In the Methods section of a dissertation or research article, writers give an account of how they carried out their research.

Academic Phrasebank – Describing Methods

The Methods section should be clear and detailed enough for another experienced person to repeat the research and reproduce the results. Where the methods chosen are new, unfamiliar or perhaps even controversial, or where the intended audience is from many disciplines, the Methods section will tend to be much more extensive. Academic Phrasebank – Reporting Results. The standard approach to this section of a research article or dissertation is to present and describe the results in a systematic and detailed way.

Academic Phrasebank – Reporting Results

When reporting qualitative results, the researcher will highlight and comment on the themes that emerge from the analysis. These comments will often be illustrated with excerpts from the raw data. In text based studies, this may comprise quotations from primary sources. Academic Phrasebank – Discussing Findings. The term ‘discussion’ has a variety of meanings in English.

Academic Phrasebank – Discussing Findings

In academic writing, however, it usually refers to two types of activity: a) considering both sides of an issue, or question before reaching a conclusion; b) considering the results of research and the implications of these. Discussion sections in dissertations and research articles are probably the most complex sections in terms of their elements. They normally centre around a ‘statement of result’ or an important ‘finding’. As there is usually more than one result, discussion sections are often structured into a series of discussion cycles. The most common elements in these cycles, and some of the language that is typically associated with them, are listed below. Academic Phrasebank – Writing Conclusions.

Conclusions are shorter sections of academic texts which usually serve two functions. The first is to summarise and bring together the main areas covered in the writing, which might be called ‘looking back’; and the second is to give a final comment or judgement on this. The final comment may also include making suggestions for improvement and speculating on future directions. In dissertations and research papers, conclusions tend to be more complex and will also include sections on the significance of the findings and recommendations for future work. Conclusions may be optional in research articles where consolidation of the study and general implications are covered in the Discussion section.

Unit 1 of English Communication for Scientists. Communication is an integral part of the research you perform as a scientist. Your written papers serve as a gauge of your scientific productivity and provide a long-lasting body of knowledge from which other scientists can build their research. The oral presentations you deliver make your latest research known to the community, helping your peers stay up to date. Discussions enable you to exchange ideas and points of view. Letters, memos, and résumés help you build and maintain relationships with colleagues, suppliers, employers, and so on.

Scientific communication is not limited to formal papers and presentations for your peers. Expresión escrita y oral - Mejora de la comunicación (U Sevilla) Skip to main content. Inglés recursos (US)
