Product Description

Drawing on interviews with 18 educational and social research academic authors of renown who work within the Institute of Education, University of London, this innovative and exciting new book will be both a useful and inspiring work for both experienced and new writers within the field of academic publishing.

The authors examined the interviews with these academic writers to draw out insights into academic writing and publication and to establish key themes. These themes are likely to be of immediate relevance and connection to other writers and those who help others with their writing. The authors examine seven key themes: the journey to becoming a writer; identities; going about writing; producing a text; engaging in the process; the politics of writing for publication; and writing, thinking and learning. This book will be indispensable for both writers and teachers but is intended to appeal to those interested in academic writing theory and research, especially in relation to the emerging field of writing for publication.
