What makes for good academic writing?

A good piece of writing is one which answers the question or addresses the issue it sets out to efficiently, concisely and elegantly. Good writing is characterized by clear and explicit connections between thoughts, sentences and paragraphs, the absence of irrelevant material and repetition, unified and organized development, and a style and tone appropriate to the subject and context. Good writing eschews jargon and excessively technical vocabulary as far as possible, and communicates as directly and clearly as the subject matter allows.
