Friday reading

Here are some interesting things we’ve come across in the last couple of weeks, for your end of week enjoyment:

For academics/writers:

  • 10 ways you can write everyday – some great advice.
  • Seven strategies to improve academic writing by Patrick Dunleavy.
  • Earlier this week I discovered this (and this) comparison website: really useful if you’re working on an article and have a feeling you might have written something similar elsewhere. Word can do compare documents using the compare feature, but it focuses on differences rather than similarities – which pretty useless if you have two documents which are (hopefully) completely different  and want to look for overlap or similarities. These websites allow you to copy two different texts into boxes and then compares them for you.
