w1w2 w3 w4

Welcome! You have accessed Writing up Research: A Guidebook , an online resource provided by Language Center at the Asian Institute of Technology in Bangkok, Thailand. This book is designed to complement our EL21: Writing Up Research course by providing detailed discussion with examples. These resources are primarily for master’s degree students at AIT starting their research writing, but have been found useful by students around the world who are involved in a research project – many of whom have kindly sent us useful feedback. We welcome you to do the same.

The Writing up Research Guidebook covers the main components of a proposal and thesis, and discusses the function of the major elements by examining relevant texts. This online resource includes some readings, but mainly it is intended to offer students a way of studying research writing on their own. It also provides links specifically for writing, language and research – if you have others, please contact us so we can add them to our collection!

These pages are open to anyone who wishes to use it – no fees, no registration required. Copyright belongs to the Asian Institute of Technology. Please print out our webpages for your own use, but not for selling or distribution.

(This guidebook was originally compiled by Gerri Brightwell in 1997-98),
