Couverture de l’ouvrage English for research : usage, style and grammar
This guide is based on a study of referees' reports and letters from journal editors on the reasons why papers written by non-native researchers are rejected due to problems with English usage, style and grammar. It draws on English-related errors from around 5000 papers written by non-native authors, 500 abstracts by PhD students, and over 1000 hours of teaching researchers how to write and present research papers.English for Research: Usage, Style, and Grammar covers those areas of English usage that typically cause researchers difficulty:grammar: use of articles, tenses (e.g. simple present, simple past, present perfect), passive form, relative clauses, infinitive vs -ing form, genitive, noun strings, syntaxstyle: acronyms, abbreviations, ambiguity, bullets, punctuation, use of numbersDue to its focus on the specific errors that repeatedly appear in papers written by non-native authors, English for Research: Usage, Style, and Grammar makes an ideal study guide for use in universities and research institutes.The book is cross-referenced with other volumes in the series:English for Academic Research: Grammar ExercisesEnglish for Academic Research: Vocabulary ExercisesEnglish for Academic Research: Writing ExercisesEnglish for Writing Research Papers
