Academic writing resources

CAW academic writing tutors have prepared some resources on academic writing as well as a list of external links that contain reliable and useful academic writing knowledge, practical strategies, exercises and techniques.

Referencing and The Coventry University Guide to Referencing in Harvard Style

The ideas you read as you prepare to write an essay or other written assignment are the intellectual property of the person who wrote them and these must be referenced. Failure to do so is plagiarism, which is penalised by examiners. You must also reference all images, tables, and graphs taken from printed or internet sources. At Coventry University, the format used for referencing sources is presented in The Coventry University Guide to Referencing in Harvard Style. You can download this document from The Coventry University Guide to Referencing in Harvard Style page.

For more details on referencing, read the article 'Referencing in Academic Writing' (580k pdf) by Dr. Erik Borg, Senior Lecturer in Academic Writing at CAW.
