Like its predecessor, the third edition of Academic Writing for Graduate Students explains understanding the intended audience, the purpose of the paper, and academic genres; includes the use of task-based methodology, analytic group discussion, and genre consciousness-raising; shows how to write summaries and critiques; features ""language focus"" sections that address linguistic elements as they affect the wider rhetorical objectives; and helps students position themselves as junior scholars in their academic communities.

Among the many changes in the third edition:

  • newer, longer, and more authentic texts and examples
  • greater discipline variety in texts (added texts from hard sciences and engineering)
  • more in-depth treatment of research articles * greater emphasis on vocabulary issues
  • revised flow-of-ideas section
  • additional tasks that require students to do their own research
  • more corpus-informed content

The Commentary has also been revised and expanded.
