The Second Reading Association of an Academic Japanese Paper in Urban Studies/Area Studies/Policy Studies is a membership association that supports foreign graduate students who write academic papers in Japanese in master’s or doctoral courses in Universities in Japan. The aim of the Association, managed by Think Mate Research Co. Ltd. (TMR), is to contribute to academic achievements through support for improving foreign graduate student’s paper in urban studies/area studies/policy studies. After a member student sends a paper of own academic subject to the Association, the student receives proofreading on his/her paper from the Association with comments in Japanese on Japanese language as well as reviews on logic by academic professionals. Professionals belonging to the Association cover a great deal of academic subjects.
A member student sends a paper to the Association by an email, and the paper with comments is returned to the student by an email after the two steps of professional review; the first step is correcting Japanese writing and the second step is proof reading of logical and structural writing.
