"How to write academic texts: A practical guide is intended to serve as a rather brief and somewhat personal, yet instructive, treatise on how to think about academic writing. The first part of the book conceives of academic writing as based on a generic model that applies to virtually all kinds of publications including journal articles, doctoral theses, and research monographs. Understanding this “elementary morphology” of such texts—their outline, emplotment, and standard lines of reasoning—is of great help when it comes to reducing the time spent on the format of the text. The second part of the book addresses a few practical issues pertaining to the practice of writing and publishing and discusses the role of disciplined, yet open-minded reading, the importance of establishing writing routines that suit your personality and work life situation, and what to bear in mind when eventually disclosing written texts to external evaluators, be they supervisors, journal editors, or publishing house editors."
