When writing academically we use formal language, I.e.:
When we write academically, we write objective. We only state facts, not what we think. It can be hard writing about something and not mentioning how you feel about it so pay attention to this.
In academic writing we can not say things like “some people believe X”we have to be precise and state exactly how many people believe X.
We should be careful about supporting claims with evidence. We soften our message by saying: “it seems to be that…”, “it might be that…”. This shows your ability to think critically! (Stash coming soon).

This relates to the the previous tip. If you write academically you state just the results, not that it has “great impact to society” or “revolutionises the industry”. This can be hard to do for my entrepreneurial friends. 😅
Whatever you write in an academic context can be hard, most of it is serious stuff. Texts full of industry specific vocabulary. Therefore it is important that you write as concise as possible.
One way to write more concisely is to use noun phrases. In noun phrases we turn verbs into noun. For example:
Students often need to be encouraged.
Students often need encouragement.
What helps me is to just type the verb from my sentence in to Google, plus the word noun. And then rephrase my sentence.
Everything we mention in our academic text has to be complete. We fully explain a topic or thought or further research idea. Some things can be obvious to you but they are not so obvious for your reader.
Have someone else, preferable someone that doesn’t know much about your field, read your text. Someone like me maybe?
Rhetorical questions are only used in presentation to capture the attention of your audience.

In this stash I give some tips about academic writing, this is one I refer to every time I have to write something so be sure to safe it so you can too!

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.
Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.
Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.
This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.
Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.
Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
