The term academic writing refers to a specific type of prose used by scholars within an academic context. While many different types of academic writing outputs exist, the defining features of academic writing are broadly the same. Scientific Academic Writing is probably very new to students, either because students have had no experience or because students are still confused as to how to improve on previous unsuccessful attempts. In many respects, academic writing can be regarded as a kind of specialised language used by scholars to convey a body of information about a particular subject. On the contrary, good academic writing should be clear, concise and pleasant to read. All too often, inexperienced academic writers assume that their writing should be full of impressive words and technical terms for it to be considered academic enough. Scientific academic writing is a craft and it can be learned.
