Academic Writer by PeterTersugh(m): 2:37pm On Apr 01, 2022
My name is Peter Kwamande and today I will be educating you about Academic Writing.

What is Academic Writing?
Academic writing is the formal writing style used in colleges and universities. It is what students are expected to produce for classes and what professors and academic researchers use to write scholarly materials. High schools sometimes require academic writing style in certain classes.

Different types of academic writing include:
1. Abstract
2. Annotated bibliography
3. Academic journal article
4. Book report
5. Conference paper
6. Dissertation
7. Essay
8. Explication
9. Literary criticism
10. Research paper
11. Research proposal
12. Textbook
13. Thesis

Characteristics of Academic Writing
1. Formal tone - A formal tone is always used in academic writing. It is not lighthearted or conversational in tone. Slang and clichés do not belong in this type of writing.
2. Precise language - In keeping with the formal tone, it’s important to choose precise language that very clearly conveys the author’s meaning.
3. Point-of-view (POV) - Academic writing is usually written in third person POV because its focus is to educate on the facts rather than to support an opinion or give advice.
4. Research focus - Because most academic writing involves reporting research results, it tends to focus on the specific research question(s) being studied.
5. Organization - Academic writing should be organized logically in a linear, matter-of-fact fashion. Use headings to delineate each major section.
6. Source citations - Most academic writing includes at least some secondary research sources. Be sure to properly cite all sources and include a bibliography.

Of course, individual assignments may sometimes have different requirements. Always review submission guidelines carefully to verify you are following the proper format and style.

Academic Writing Structure
1. Introduction
In the introduction, you must grab the reader's attention and identify the thesis of the paper.
2. Body
This is the main part of the work. The paragraphs must be clearly written and arranged in a logical order.
3. Conclusion
The purpose of the conclusion is to cleanly bring the paper to a close for readers. It should reiterate the thesis and summarize the main points or findings.

Remember to write with an authoritative tone and ensure that your work flows coherently. That way, readers of your paper will be able to follow your reasoning and understand the conclusion and its implications.
