Scientific Writing Showcase

Die auf dieser Seite befindlichen Artikel wurden von den Mitarbeitern des English Writing Centers gesammelt. Allesamt bestehen aus wissenschaftlichen Sachtexten, welche komplexe Themen klar verständlich und wunderbar prägnant in lebhaftem und dynamischem Englisch darstellen. Auch deswegen sind alle Artikel in prestigeträchtigen und durch Experten geprüften Fachjournalen veröffentlicht worden und sollen als Beispiele exzellenten Schreibens dienen, welches wir im English Writing Center zu vermitteln versuchen. Wir hoffen dass diese Kollektion als Inspiration für alle, die mit Klarheit und Eleganz über wissenschaftliche Themen schreiben wollen, dient.

Um auf die Artikel zugreifen zu können ist eine TUM eAccess ID und ein Passwort erforderlich.
