Writing and sources

A guide on writing and the use of sources intended for students at the department of Biologi and CEC.

Finding your sources

Scientific publications can be found through the bibliographic databases and search tools provided by the university. For practical advice on how to find scientific publications, see the separate library guide Searching.

Finding sources that are not scientific publications can be more difficult and time consuming, since these are usually not found in the bibliographic databases and other search tools provided by the university. In the sections below you will find links to useful webpages and databases from trusted sources where you may find EU and Government agency publications, Species informationMaps and geodata, Data and statistics, Laws and regulations, Standards, and Patents. Please note that this compilation is not exhaustive, and there are probably more good places to look that are not listed in this guide.
