Success In Academic Writing By Trevor Day

Success, the latest edition

Success in academic writing by Trevor DayThe third edition of Success in Academic Writing (Bloomsbury) was published yesterday in paper and electronic editions across most territories and can be purchased from the publisher at or from your usual bookseller.

In writing the latest edition, I consulted with students, writing developers and academics, as I had for previous editions. We’ve updated the book to take into account developments in writing online assignments, and to reflect latest concerns around academic integrity, disinformation and student wellbeing. Aimed at undergraduates and taught postgraduates, this writing guide has nevertheless been found valuable by tutors, lecturers and researchers. It is rigorous while remaining very practical and down-to-earth, with many worked examples, and aims to be accessible to those with different learning preferences and for whom English is a second language.

The reviews for the second edition have been positively heart-warming, as we hope they will be for the third:

If you only buy two books to use at university, make sure this is one of them. Researching and writing well for different purposes is part of every career, and this book provides an easy-to-handle comprehensive guide you can use whenever you need it. I recommend this book to all my UK and international students.
— Dr Marion Loeffler, Cardiff University, UK.

This is an outstanding text, full of brilliant advice, guidance and tips. It is the best guide to academic writing I have seen and I will be recommending this to my own students.
— Professor Gerry Czerniawski, University of East London, UK.
