dc.description.abstract This study investigates non-native English speaking (NNES) graduate students' difficulties and challenges in writing academic papers including scholarly papers (SP), master’s thesis and doctoral dissertation. Through questionnaire asking their potential difficulties such as developing proposal, reviewing and revising, and writing styles and academic language uses, it intended to examine NNESs’ needs and expectations from their writing course in support for their academic writings. The results revealed that they were in need of more feedback from their peers and instructors as well as proofreading service or training. In addition, diverse aspects of challenges are examined, and potential supports through academic writing course are further discussed. en_US
