Writing process research: implications for manuscript support for academic authors

Mary Ellen Kerans

Abstract:

How proficient writers manage the complex task of finding their ideas and bringing them into a form they can share with readers was the subject of a body of writing process research carried out intensively in the 1970s and 1980s. A ‘recursive’ model of writing emerged based on research designs borrowed from anthropology, sociology and cognitive psychology. This chapter describes that model and discusses the implications for editors and translators who help with manuscripts in non-anglophone settings today.
