SIG Writing aims to provide a forum for exchange of ideas about writing and promoting research collaboration between writing researchers from different countries as well as from different disciplines, such as education, psychology, linguistics, cognitive science, computer science, literary studies and rethorics. Examples of topics we deal with are:
- the cognitive, social and developmental processes involved in writing,
- the functions of writing in different social and institutional contexts
- the design of writing instruction in various educational settings
Our activities include writing-related publications, conferences and information facilitities. Among the most important acitivities of SIG writing are publications on many topics related to the scientific study of writing. These include the Journal of Writing Research (http://jowr.org/ ), our publication archive (http://www.sigwritingpublications.org/)
and the book series "Studies in Writing". For more information, see http://www.sig-writing.org .
