During the project, we have received help and support from various quarters at LU. We are grateful for the time and effort that LU colleagues and students have spent helping us create this resource. In particular, we would like to thank the following groups and individuals:

The AWELU reference group consisted of Lena Landgren, Susanne Pelger, Mattias Alveteg, Mats Hagwall, Agnes Andersson, Freddy Ståhlberg, Katarina Mårtenson, Karl Ageberg, Kjell-Åke Modéer, Kristina Eneroth, and Mette Sjölin. Thank you for meeting with us regularly to discuss general and more specific issues, and for providing us with valuable input from different parts of the University. The steering committee consisted of Per Warfvinge and Eva Wiberg. Eva along with Birgitta Lastow were of great help in getting the project off the ground.

Susanne Pelger wrote the AWELU text on popular science writing. It is a translation of a chapter from her book Kommunikation för naturvetare, which is republished on the AWELU platform with kind permission from Studentlitteratur. We much appreciate your generosity and you setting time aside for the translation of the text, Susanne!
 
Sofia Hanson and Anna Johansson from LU Corporate Communications have been of assistance in helping the project reach out to people at LU.
 
At an early stage of the project, we asked for LU-produced scholarly texts in English. We received a number of texts that helped us form an idea of the breadth of the academic writing in English that is carried out at LU. We are grateful for that input.

We would also like to express our warm thanks to the groups of staff and students who tested the platform in late 2009 and in 2010. Your input was valuable for the development of the platform and also for future development of academic writing resources at LU.
 
We appreciate fruitful discussions with colleagues at the Centre for Languages and Literature and the Humanities & Theology IT Unit. At the beginning of the project, Birgitta Lastow from the IT unit was of great importance, even though she was not formally part of the AWELU project group. Special thanks goes to Nicole Tyszkiewicz from the LU Translation Service for her help with proofreading some of the texts. Of course, any remaining errors are our own.
