This website will host a number of exercises and guides for graduate (and undergraduate) students to improve their writing. The website will (hopefully) become a resource for professors, teachers, and graduate students to learn and practice how to write
good well. In the future, I will add practice problems for parts of the paper writing process, e.g., writing introductions, abstracts, framing, etc. Much of these guides and exercises build, of course, on the work of others. This website is work in progress. Suggestions for additions or improvements are always welcome.
Caveat: most of these guidelines are written with (quantitative) empirical papers in mind, but may still be useful to others as well.
