#AskDrEditor: Jargon can make for good academic writing

My editing advice column, Ask Dr. Editor, is available through UniversityAffairs.ca. This Ask Dr. Editor details three types of good and not-so-good jargon, and provides a tool for identifying when to edit–and when not to edit–the jargon in your work: “Jargon can make for good academic writing: The use of jargon can be effective in journal articles and grant applications – but use it sparingly when writing for a wider audience.”
