    Coverage includes understanding the intended audience, and academic genres; the use of task-based methodology, analytic group discussion, and genre consciousness-raising; how to write summaries and critiques; and helping students position themselves as junior scholars in their academic communities.

    <p>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.</p> <p>Among the many changes in the third edition:</p> * newer, longer, and more authentic texts and examples * greater discipline variety in texts (added texts from hard sciences and engineering) * more in-depth treatment of research articles * greater emphasis on vocabulary issues * revised flow-of-ideas section * additional tasks that require students to do their own research * more corpus-informed content <p>The Commentary has also been revised and expanded.</p>
