Writing a Research Article: Abstract


Are you a Ph.D. student junior or an advanced researcher still fighting with the English academic texts? Do not worry, and keep writing! We offer you a cycle of four workshops, especially aiming at one of the researcher's burdens. The first three seminars focus on specific parts of an English academic text, while the last is about applying for a funding project.


  1. Writing a Research Article: Effective Introduction

  2. Writing a Research Article: Abstract

  3. Writing a Research Article: Discussion Section and Literature Review

  4. Writing a Research Article: Applying for a Funding Project


All of the workshops could be participated separately.

Lecturer

Eleanor Lurring, MA in Applied Linguistics, MBA, RSA Dip TESOL

I am a native speaker of English from the UK. With over thirty years of experience teaching high-level English, I now focus on helping writers produce academic texts for publication. I proofread and edit academic texts such as research articles, Ph.D. dissertations, conference papers, motivation letters, and grant applications. I work with doctoral and post-doctoral researchers in various branches of science, education, engineering, humanities, and economics. This may be consultancy work if the structure and content of a text need attention; or it may be proofreading for accuracy and reader-friendly style.
