Introduction

Good writing takes practice and there are many ways that students can enhance and support their writing to achieve sound academic results. This guide has been designed to help students meet the requirements of academic writing. In essence, this is a style guide. There are rules to follow to correctly present the original author and avoid plagiarism, and there are suggestions to follow to communicate clearly and concisely.

This guide will not replace the generally accepted academic practices of using a spell checker or proof reading your work for grammar errors. Rather, this style guide is designed to support you in your writing process. You will still need to determine whether you are required to write an essay or a report, whether the work is formal or informal. Before consulting this guide, make sure that you understand the requirements of your assessment. Ask your teacher for help with anything that you do not understand.
