“The bar is rising higher and higher; graduate and post-doctoral students, university faculty, and research scientists in all spheres are expected to write more, publish repeatedly, and keep a consistent level of productivity throughout their careers. These expectations – courtesy of the always increasing competition for academic jobs – do not come with instruction manuals. Yet ebooks such as Mastering Academic Writing in the Sciences: A Step by Step Guide become that missing instruction manual for academic writers in the “hard” and social sciences. Alliotta’s text presents something on almost everything significant for meeting these expectations with good-quality academic writing: from establishing a writing practice, to developing one’s own writing templates. Particular recommendations are helpful for non-native-speakers of English, and worked examples come in handy for everyone.
Academic writers of all positions, but especially those beginning their academic journey, will benefit from having this ebook and its resources at their fingertips. A combination of practical exercises, light humor, self-assessment questions, checklists, and additional resources make the ebook both a joy to read and a priceless toolkit.” ― Patricia Goodson, Ph.D., Presidential Professor for Teaching Excellence, Texas A&M University
