    What is "academic writing".

    Hi,

    I sent an application for particular Phd program in civil engineering, and got the reply with following sentence:

    There is no evidence of academic writing.
    What exactly is an "academic writing"?

    Does that has to do with the style of writing?
    Or what they meant was lack of published scientific articles?

    Thank you for the reply.

    I guess they mean the latter.
    Please be aware that I'm neither a native English speaker nor a teacher.

    It means you have not shown that you have published any scholarly papers. Charliedeut is right.
