The Aca­d­e­m­ic Phrase­bank is a gen­er­al resource for aca­d­e­m­ic writ­ers. It aims to pro­vide you with exam­ples of some of the phrase­o­log­i­cal ‘nuts and bolts’ of writ­ing organ­ised accord­ing to the main sec­tions of a research paper or dis­ser­ta­tion. Oth­er phras­es are list­ed under the more gen­er­al com­mu­nica­tive func­tions of aca­d­e­m­ic writ­ing.

The resource should be par­tic­u­lar­ly use­ful for writ­ers who need to report their research work. The phras­es, and the head­ings under which they are list­ed, can be used sim­ply to assist you in think­ing about the con­tent and organ­i­sa­tion of your own writ­ing, or the phras­es can be incor­po­rat­ed into your writ­ing where this is appro­pri­ate.

In most cas­es, a cer­tain amount of cre­ativ­i­ty and adap­ta­tion will be nec­es­sary when a phrase is used. The items in the Aca­d­e­m­ic Phrase­bank are most­ly con­tent neu­tral and gener­ic in nature; in using them, there­fore, you are not steal­ing oth­er people’s ideas and this does not con­sti­tute pla­gia­rism. For some of the entries, spe­cif­ic con­tent words have been includ­ed for illus­tra­tive pur­pos­es, and these should be sub­sti­tut­ed when the phras­es are used.

The resource was designed pri­mar­i­ly for aca­d­e­m­ic and sci­en­tif­ic writ­ers who are non-native speak­ers of Eng­lish. How­ev­er, native speak­er writ­ers may still find much of the mate­r­i­al help­ful. In fact, recent data sug­gest that the major­i­ty of users are native speak­ers of Eng­lish.
