Introduction

AWELU Logo

Academic writing is carried out in different traditions and contexts and for different purposes. Writing can be seen as a process in which the text develops and changes all the way from first ideas to finished text.

By revising and rewriting, writers develop both their thinking and their texts during this process, in which a number of considerations have to be taken into account.

On the AWELU platform, we aim to cover central issues connected with academic writing in English.

Please note that as the focus of the AWELU platform is on writing in English, we do not discuss what can be referred to as the research process. Research often goes hand in hand with writing, and there are, of course, aspects that overlap, but as procedures for choosing topic, method and approach vary greatly between different fields and disciplines, our focus is limited to aspects directly linked to language and writing.
