Writing Resources

  • Documenting sources for an essay. "An essay presents an argument, and arguments require evidence. Scholarly practice requires writers to note the source of any evidence which is not common knowledge (any point which is specific or which depends upon expert interpretation). Historical and literary critiques cite original documents (sometimes referred to as primary evidence) as well as the works of other scholars or authorities (secondary evidence). In either case, accurate documentation is essential. The failure to acknowledge borrowed ideas is plagiarism, a serious academic offence."

  • 10 Tips on Writing the Living Webby Mark Bernstein]"Some parts of the web are finished, unchanging creations – as polished and as fixed as books or posters. But many parts change all the time. Writing for the Living Web is a tremendous challenge" says Mark Bernstein.
