报告摘要/Abstacts: Writing a scholarly article in English is essential for researchers to reach out a wider international audience in their relevant fields. For Chinese scholars, English academic writing poses great challenges due to the huge differences between the English and Chinese languages. This workshop seeks to provide a guideline on planning and writing a scholarly English article, whether for publication in a journal or for completion of a dissertation. It will begin with an overview of the key differences between English and Chinese in thinking, syntax and discourse. Built on such an understanding, the workshop will proceed to introduce the process of planning, drafting and revising an English academic paper. A range of strategies will be suggested for the Chinese scholars to effectively convey their views and judgements in relation to the research of others and present the findings of their own research. Emphasis will also be given to ways in which academic writers can effectively guide and engage the readers through language resources.  Writing samples of the USTB graduate students will be analyzed during the workshop to illustrate the common pitfalls in academic writing.  Participants of the workshop will be invited to suggest improvements to the samples and share their own writings.
