I have started to build my personal phrase bank since I’m a non-native speaker and struggling to build my arguments and sentences correctly. So I decided to mimic the structure of native authors who write in academia in general. To make it clear, I will provide an example:

My use of this phrase in my context:
In recent years, it has become popular that the idea of both big data and open data are important for the development discourse and not just as tools of the government.
