Editing Academic Writing - Online Resources
Duration Accessible at any point during academic year
Team Researcher Academy

This online course is delivered by the Researcher Academy 

The Researcher Academy courses are very popular and the majority are run in both semesters to give you the opportunity to attend at a time of the year that suits you. Semester 1 courses will be available for booking from the second week of October and Semester 2 courses from the second week of February.

Target audience: Postgraduate Research Students. 

These online resources are useful for all postgraduate research students. They are especially aimed at those who have a piece of academic writing to edit – whether that be a journal article, chapter or thesis.


These resources explore the different components of editing academic writing. They describe some of the challenges commonly faced when editing and help students to identify the different types of editing their work might need. Finally, they discuss different strategies for editing academic writing and share tips on proofreading and polishing work. The resources will be particularly useful to those who have begun to draft and write their thesis and those in the later stages of the doctoral process (pre-submission). 


These are standalone (self-study) online resources in Moodle. This is not a course and as such does not carry training points. You may access the materials as often as you like.
