It is clear that academic writing, in particular reference to academic writing in English, has become increasingly important in the globalization trend. Several studies have revealed the difficulties that researchers are likely to encounter while doing research in foreign languages. Besides two common problems which are the shortage of ideas and structure, writers also have to face the issues of grammatical mistakes and the lack of formal words. The situation becomes worse for those who have no experience in doing research or writing academic English. In this study, we develop a system which assists writers with academic English writing. The system provides an effective tool for professionals or English teachers to create a framework from which students and inexperienced people can create their academic writing. Moreover, this system will act as a bountiful archive of English phrases, examples and structures which helps writers learn from their previous works. According to the statistic of an online survey with 120 participants has proved that the system can not only boost users' confidence and interest but also improve their writing skills. Cases of users whose articles were accepted by various international conferences and journal papers have provided solid evidence for this method's capability of increasing the chance of being accepted by academic sources.
