Writing Tips

• Report

o Avoid direct quotes as much as possible. (If you must quote, ensure that it is no more than

a few words) Instead, paraphrase. Always cite when using someone else’s words/ideas.

  • ! To mix up your sentence structure & improve the flow of prose in your paper, here
    are some options for presenting a source in-text: (CSE format was used for these
    citations)
  • ! Source at the end:

    Despite numerous intentional releases, it is suspected the actual


    establishment of these two species in the US was due to accidental introductions


    from shipping (Gardiner et al. 2009).
  • ! Source integrated into sentence:

    In their study, Snyder et al. (2004) found there to


    be no difference in the frequency of intraguild predation even with the addition of


    aphids.
  • ! If a page number is needed:


    • Despite numerous intentional releases, it is suspected the actual


      establishment of these two species in the US was due to accidental


      introductions from shipping (Gardiner et al. 2009, 446)

    • In their study, Snyder et al. (2004) found there to be no difference in the


      frequency of intraguild predation even with the addition of aphids (309).

o If you use someone else’s words and don’t properly give credit (with an in-text citation
and/or quotes), points will be lost & depending on the severity, you will be reported for
plagiarism. I mean it.

o Avoid using personal pronouns (i.e. I, me, we, our, us, you, etc) or otherwise informal
tone; this is a research paper and should have a formal tone/style

o Avoid contractions (i.e. can’t, won’t)

o Avoid phrases like:

! The purpose of this paper is …..
! This paper will explore….

o Avoid asking (rhetorical) questions in your paper

o Avoid clichés, colloquialisms, & slang (this includes words like “things” and “stuff”)
o Avoid large spans of white space in your paper (points will be docked for huge gaping

white spaces)

o Try your best to use active language (i.e.

can

instead of

could

,

had

instead of

have had

),

where appropriate

o Proofread! Pay attention to GRAMMAR, please.

o Try to keep your writing tight, avoiding wordiness/extra words as much as possible (i.e.

oftentimes we use a lot of “that”s in our writing; when you’re proofreading, go back and
remove any unnecessary “that”s or other words in order to tighten your prose)
