Academic Writing

During your studies you will conduct several written assignments. There are many aspects of academic writing to take into consideration: certain standards with regards to structure, citing sources, language tone and style.

When you use thoughts and formulations that you have found in another text, it is important to clearly state this by referring to your sources.  It is also important to know how to find correct information and be able to evaluate it.
