Political Science & Peace and Conflict Studies Subject Guide: Academic Writing

Academic Writing

When writing academic texts you need to support your argumentation by using different sources. You have to refer to the texts and sources that you have used, and it's important that you distinguish your own text and ideas from those of others. To do this in a standardized way we use different referencing styles such as for ex. Harvard, Oxford, APA, Vancouver. It's a matter of academic honesty. Learn more here: Academic honesty.
