We draw on van Dijk (1980) and Paltridge (2002) in categorizing the global organizational patterns of 1,373 PhD dissertations and cross reference these patterns with each study’s research perspective. Although prior research has addressed thesis and dissertation writing by drawing on ESP and EAP perspectives, the majority of these stud...

With its nonproofreading policy, some scholars have indicated the service may be less effective for international students who require more explicit assistance on surface-level features in their academic writing (Harris & Silva, 1993; Myers, 2003). However, these discussions often omit or insufficiently address international graduate students as a distinctive population (Phil...

This conceptual paper draws on a diverse selection of primary and secondary data highlighting recent trends in international and refugee university student enrolments, participation, and outcomes in Canadian universities. Several key issues emerged from the analysis.

Abstract This article explores the internationalization of Canadian universities, with a focus on the rise of foreign postsecondary students in Canada, the economic impacts, and the various benefits, challenges, and adjustments that have been influenced by the continuing demographic shifts on Canadian campuses since 2000. Rooted in recent global and Canadian higher education internationalization trends, this paper suggests that accommodations for such shifts have not kept pace with the influx of...
