Abstract:

In the workplace, written communication is key to transmitting and 
preserving information. How to produce efficient and professional documents 
is, therefore, a decisive question for all companies and institutions. "Written 
Documents in the Workplace" addresses this need by bridging the gap 
between fundamental writing and reading research, and issues of efficacy 
with respect to written communication in the workplace. The Editors have 
selected specific topics and invited eminent linguists, psychologists and 
ergonomists around the world to contribute state-of-the-art reviews. 

The book is divided into three parts. The first provides a linguistic definition 
of professional documents, explaining differences in type and genre; the 
second part focuses on the mental mechanisms involved in writing in the 
workplace, while the third is dedicated to the comprehension of the written 
documents themselves. There are also recommendations to professional 
writers; ways to improve on surface form and content structure are 
discussed and design guidelines provided in the form of in-depth reviews and 
illustrated examples. Pictograms, blogs, animated procedures, task-
guidance systems, 'the professional translator' and 'the writer at school' are 
all additional features to be found in this new Studies in Writing volume. 

Cutting across the diverse fields of text linguistics, cognitive psychology and 
human factors, this book will dramatically strengthen the writing abilities of 
the reader, leaving them better equipped to produce more usable documents 
at work.
