Write & Cite

These pages are intended for you, who are about to write a paper or any other written assignment.

Writing academic texts means:

  • Assessing the information you find
  • Managing the books, articles, websites, etc that you will be using
  • Referencing
  • Avoiding plagiarizing

We have also gathered writing guidelines and other useful resources.

You must learn to adapt your writing to the conventional way for your subject area and use the corresponding technical terminology. If you are not sure of this procedure, consult your lecturer. When you write an academic text, you should make references to what others have written on the subject. You must learn how to make citations and handle references in a correct way. Under Referencing you can find more information on the process of making references.
