When I am looking some academic papers, there are some sentences like:

"In result of the Fukushima accident, a large-scale diffusion of radioactivity took place. "

"In the result of these operations, X n points are shrunk (become smaller) to the center point X c. "

I am not sure whether they are right.

The proper way to use that construction is

As a result of the Fukushima accident, a large scale diffusion of radioactivity took place.

Alternatively

The Fukushima accident resulted in a large scale diffusion of radioactivity.

Or you could be less wordy with

The Fukushima accident released a large amount of radioactivity.

  • Thank a lot. So the second sentence also could modify into"As a result of these operations,...", is it right? – chandlerone Mar 1 '18 at 22:39
  • Absolutely. "As a result of ___" is a standard phrase. – Jeff Morrow Mar 1 '18 at 22:45
