For the first time this event was held on 7thJune, 2016 in Samara University (Ac. Pavlova str. 1). More than 100 participants (masters, post-graduate students and teaching staff) noticed that these workshops were very useful as all of them are connected with different aspects of academic writing that can cause difficulties for Russian-speaking scientists: abstract writing, peculiarities of English sentences, stylistics and CV writing.

    This semester Academic Writing Day will be held on 29th September, 2016 in the main building of Samara University (Moskovskoye sh. 34, Building 3a, Room 209). The event consists of 2 presentations: the first one “Samara Academic Consultancy Center: Pooling a Year Experience” will touch upon the SACC activity for the recent year. It will also cover not only our future plans and perspectives but also the Center assistance in publishing articles of Samara University researchers.

    45-minute workshop “Academic Writing Tips from Overseas Graduate School” will explore new elements of the academic writing style in the scientific discourse. Examples include the use of voice, the first person, and sentence structure. It will provide suggestions on how to make your writing more effective and accessible to the public. The talk is intended for scientists, academic writing instructors, post-graduate students, and advanced English students interested in improving their writing style.
