Academic Writing

CARTA partnered with ESE:O to produce teaching resources in academic writing and critical thinking. The ESE:O methodology builds capacity in writing to facilitate inclusion into academia and policy making.

The ESE:O-CARTA manual – A Critical Approach to Scientific Reading and Writing – guides students to write doctoral theses, research articles, and book chapters that are well-structured, logically coherent, and engaging. For PhD students, the approach works well with ongoing support from writing mentors.

The curriculum for PhD training includes sessions to introduce this approach and a series of video animations to support the learning.
