Common Writing Challenges Academics Face

Academics need to navigate multiple hurdles in their writing journey. Let’s take a quick look at the most common writing challenges that can impede progress and productivity.  

  • Writer’s block: Staring at a blank page can be intimidating and frustrating. Authors often don’t know how to start writing or are unsure of the best way to build their ideas from one sentence to the next.  
  • Ensuring clarity and cohesiveness: Academic writing needs to be clear, precise, and well-organized. Achieving this can be difficult, especially when dealing with research topics and extensive data. 
  • Language barriers: For non-native speakers, expressing complex ideas in a second language can be particularly challenging, impacting the quality and clarity of their work. A PLOS survey shows that compared to native English speakers, those with moderate English proficiency take as much as 51% more time to write in English. 
  • Maintaining focus: Academic writing demands prolonged concentration. Interruptions and distractions can disrupt the flow of thoughts, making it difficult to stay on track with your writing goals. 
  • Expressing thoughts into innovative ideas: When it comes to academic writing, authors need to think holistically and develop counterarguments or diverse perspectives to support their claims. Finding this takes time and a lot of research reading.

Paperpal is tailored specifically for academic text and its latest feature Write offers authors instant AI-based writing support to address these challenges head-on. With this new upgrade, the AI writing assistant can further deepen the support it provides authors on the academic writing journey. Under Write, authors have two options:
