Publishing engineering writing: Access and participation in professional practices

Director/PI: Mary Jane Curry

This study investigates how engineers write for publication and how students and post-docs learn the professional practices related to disseminating research findings.

Collaborators: Wendi Heinzelman
Andrew Wall

Funding: Warner School mini grant 

Related Projects: Professional academic writing in a global context

We use a mixed-methods approach (ethnographic, interview and survey) grounded in a theoretical framework drawing on social practice, social capital and social network theories.

Research apprenticeships for doctoral students can be created from this project. Contact Dr MJ Curry at
