Writing a Better Thesis, Dissertation or Journal Article

Getting better at writing is one of the best ways to increase your research output. Yet, we spend very little time learning or practicing writing. So here are 5 tips to improve your writing:

1. Read the style of writing you want to write.

2. Write assuming people will skim and skip sections.

3. Use subheadings.

4. Don’t write like Santa gave you words for Christmas.

5. Don’t dismiss reviewer comments as “ignorant” take them as a chance to improve.
