Welcome to the first in a series of peer learning handbooks developed by PhD and MPhil research students to help assist their peers along the academic writing journey.
The first of this series of handbooks deals with academic writing for researchers within the business domain. Although approaches to clear writing such as scrutinizing every word and sentence for meaning and purpose and learning to listen to feedback are common features of excellent writing across all disciplines, there are also differences between writing within different domains. Even within the business domain there may be differences in writing approaches between economists for example or business computing analysts and more qualitative behavioural approaches. It is important therefore that new researchers recognise that there are guidelines and norms in writing excellence that might in part be determined by the audience and the field that they are contributing to.
