This volume, published in 1988, consists of papers from the eponymous 1985 University of Reading Conference.

The choice of Academic Writing as a theme was designed to counteract the perception that it was the ‘Cinderella of EAP’, and the Conference aimed to enable practitioners to benefit from recent research in the teaching of writing from outside ELT as well as within the field. The papers dealt individually with different aspects of academic writing and its teaching, including that of essay writing, project writing, scientific writing, writing for examinations, and article writing.
