Like its predecessor, the third edition of Academic Writing for Graduate Students explains understanding the intended audience, the purpose of the paper, and academic genres; includes the use of task-based methodology, analytic group discussion, and genre consciousness-raising; shows how to write summaries and critiques; features "language focus" sections that address linguistic elements as they affect the wider rhetorical objectives; and helps students position themselves as junior scholars in their academic communities.Among the many changes in the third edition:newer, longer, and more authentic texts and examplesgreater discipline variety in texts (added texts from hard sciences and engineering)more in-depth treatment of research articlesgreater emphasis on vocabulary issuesrevised flow-of-ideas sectionadditional tasks that require students to do their own researchmore corpus-informed contentThe Commentary has been revised and expanded.
