Academic writing

A scientific attitude towards writing within the academic world

When studying at the university you will both read and write academic texts. Within academia we have to relate to what has been done previously within our field of research. Both students and researchers have to follow certain norms when it comes to citations, form, language and style when engaged in academic writing.

In the menu at the left you will find different entries where you can learn more about academic writing, academic integrity and referencing, and where to get further support concerning these issues. To the right there is a film on how to write in an academic way.
