About us

The Center for Academic Writing was launched in fall 2011 as a unit of the Department of Language Studies of the Czech Language Institute (Czech Academy of Sciences). Our aim is to provide support services to researchers of the Czech Academy of Sciences as well as doctoral students and others who need to write, publish and present in English. We do not proof-read or edit your texts, but provide in-depth guidance and feedback with the aim to help you refine your communication skills in academic English.
