About the Project

abstract

To meet the increasing demand for strong writing skills in the field of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics, the project investigates academic and professional writing in the relevant disciplines.

It aims to create a national center of scholarship to conduct research on linguistic practices in STEM disciplines, to improve pedagogy of writing in the relevant fields, and to develop and apply computational methods for analysis and assessment of discipline-specific writing.

Originally started at Iowa State University with a Presidential Initiative for Interdisciplinary Research grant, this project is seeking for more collaborators and external funding.
