Improve your academic writing

1)Read your work backwards – take a paragraph of your work and read it backwards – word by word. This creates what is know as “cognitive dissonance” and helps you to pick up on mistakes in your writing.

2)Read your work aloud – as simple as it says: read your work aloud, you could try different speeds or get Microsoft Word to read it aloud for you. Moving from the reading mode to the speaking mode help you to create the distance you need to be able to pick up errors.

3)Leave your work – if you have the time we would recommend that you go away and leave your work aside for a day or two, then come back to it. This will help you gain a new perspective on what you have written and will help you spot mistakes.

4)Remove ‘that’: An easy way to upgrade your writing, use “control+F” and find all instances of the word “that”. This word is not needed half as much as you would think, a sentence like “The results show that the world is round” can be changed to “The results show the world is round”. This makes your writing less passive and more active and it reads that bit better.
