The Academic Phrasebank is a general resource for academic writers. It aims to provide you with examples of some of the phraseological "nuts and bolts" of writing organised under the headings to the left. It was designed primarily with international students whose first language is not English in mind. However, if you are a native speaker writer, you may still find parts of the material helpful.
The phrases can be used simply to assist you in thinking about your writing, or they can be used in your own work where this is appropriate. In most cases a certain amount of creativity will be necessary when you do this. It is also possible to transfer some of the words used in particular phrases to others. The phrases are content neutral and generic in nature; in using them, therefore, you are not stealing other people's ideas and this does not constitute plagiarism.

From Stephen Downs, OLDaily June 14, 2011
I had a quick run through easyBib this morning and have favorable things to say. It does a lot of what I wanted gRSShopper to do, using forms to make submissions of bibliographical entries a lot easier, but goes well beyond that, looking up what's needed from various sources on the web. After all (the thinking must go) if the data exists in a database somewhere out there on the web, why should anyone type it in again? Of course, on the other hand, the data out there on the web should be good the data properly entered - this means citing On Liberty as being authored by John Stuart Mill, and not Mill plus a bunch of co-authors. Also, I didn't appreciate being blasted with an audio ad while I was trying to record something. So - great design, poor execution.

If you're not using Twitter yet, you may feel as if you've missed out. Twitter has not only tipped the tuna, but by some estimations, it has already jumped the shark. Don't be put off by its excessive popularity with SXSW geeks or by the whining of Twitter haters who missed the fun. Twitter is an interesting and practical real-time messaging system for groups and friends. It's just not completely obvious how to get into the "club." So, here's a newbie's guide to this new platform. We don't cover every feature of Twitter, but this should help get you started.

This is nice, a great tutorial on using available tools to find, capture, convert etc online media.
Downes: "Nice set of practical resources, very useful for teachers preparing media for fall classes (it's never too soon). Related: how to embed only a part of a YouTube video. Miguel Guhlin, Around the Corner, August 4, 2009"

April 16 is the 50th anniversary of the publication of a little book that is loved and admired throughout American academe. Celebrations, readings, and toasts are being held, and a commemorative edition has been released.
I won't be celebrating.
The Elements of Style does not deserve the enormous esteem in which it is held by American college graduates. Its advice ranges from limp platitudes to inconsistent nonsense. Its enormous influence has not improved American students' grasp of English grammar; it has significantly degraded it.
